Soul to Soles Connection, a 501 (c) 3 organization, is dedicated to the mental health of America’s active military, Veterans and their families/caregivers. Participants, suffering from trauma, PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) or Military Sexual Trauma (MST), are offered the time to heal and overcome challenges with the support of our professional facilitators – a licensed mental health professional, a certified equine specialist, and the horses.

Our mission offers mental health treatment, with horses, focused on reducing the impact of trauma, while rediscovering confidence, compassion, and trust. We honor all by providing a supportive haven – a place where concerns and struggles can be explored and released. The experiential nature of working with horses, engages the active and retired military in their own healing process, reaching solutions that meet them squarely on their own terms.

Soul to Soles Connection is committed to “Stomping the Stigma” around mental health, especially within the military, through individual/couple/family sessions, closed groups, and retreats.
