Jayne’s interest in animal-assisted therapy and therapy based in nature began in college in OT school when she was introduced to hippotherapy.  As a child growing up, she had horses and showed them at the fair with 4-h. 

 

Her dream was to blend both occupational therapy and horses into a therapy practice. Animals have many therapeutic benefits, including calming effects, emotional attachments, and are highly motivating to complete non-preferred tasks to get to play with animals. Nature offers practical benefits for gross motor, fine motor, and sensory experiences.  After many years of dreaming and preparing, she has opened  a private practice to help children and families reach their goals.
