Harmony Through Horses

Transformative Counseling

Harmony Through Horses is the private psychotherapy practice of Andrea Burgess, MSW, LCSW, LCAS-R. Andrea's passion for experiential therapy runs deep, and she believes that horses help us to heal in a unique way that cannot be replicated in the office! Her favorite therapeutic topics are recovery from addictions, healthy communication, buiding self esteem, and healing from trauma, all of which are a natural fit with horses. Natural Lifemanship's Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Therapy, the EAGALA Model, Parelli Natural Horsemanship and Mindfulness Practice all deeply inform the equine work at Harmony Through Horses. Andrea has been in the social work field for 18 years, clincially licensed for 11, and has worked for the Department of Social Services in Foster Care and Adoptions, the Department of Juvenile Justice in the Woodson Wilderness Challenge, and the Department of Health and Human Services in the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Treatment Center. She has served as a Psychiatric Intake Clinician for Mission Hospitals Emergency Department, worked on the Inpatient Psychiatric Unit, and was the Director of Eliada's Therapeutic Horse Program for three years. Local agencies and programs regularly utilize Andrea's expertise in Clinical Supervision services for their social workers in training. For fun she loves outdoor adventure or to sit quietly in a meditation retreat!

Harmony Through Horses is excited to welcome Nicole Handman, MSW, LCSW-A to our herd! Nicole has over seven years of clinical experience working in a variety of  therapeutic settings including in-home, school-based, private practice and her ultimate favorite, in the pasture. Nicole is an animal lover whose life long passion is to bring her playfulness, enthusiasm, and compassion to both animals and children, and believes strongly in the incredible, transformative power of the human-animal bond. She is a graduate of the University of Denver, with a Masters in Clinical Social Work and a Certificate in Animal-assisted Therapy, and has advanced training in Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. With Nicole on the team, Harmony Through Horses is excited to again be able to offer services to children, adolescents and their families. Welcome Nicole!

 

In August 2018 Harmony Through Horses happily welcomed Terri Wilson, MSW Candidate and Equine Specialist from East Tennessee State University. Terri comes with a wealth of equine, business, human services and life experience, and has advanced training in Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. She will provide services to children and families through Spring 2019, including an adolescent girls group on Monday afternoons 4:00-5:30pm.

Welcome Terri!
