A message from Michelle Goss, Director, Spirit Mountain Healing Center

Even though things are still uncertain and there is still chaos about what is going to happen next with the Coronavirus crisis, I have a deep-seated belief that there is hope for all of us. We, as a nation, have been through other trying times together such as 911, the AIDS crisis, and many other challenging situations. And yet, I know we are all struggling with the daily uncertainties we, as a whole, are facing. From not knowing if we will have a paycheck, to how we will feed our family, how to do I keep my family safe and healthy and yet still function on a daily basis, and many, many other pressing questions.


I am reducing rates in order to be able to offer help to ANYONE who is in need or wants support during these trying times. These reduced rates will be available until the Coronavirus crisis is over and we all move forward with our lives.


SMHC is taking safety measures to reduce person-to-person contact while still allowing physical contact with the horses to allow people access to the healing and comfort horses can bring us during the Coronavirus crisis.

Come Meet A Horse!

SMHC is also offering “Come Meet a Horse” sessions for those who have children at home and are needing something to do with their children outside. SMHC is offering individual “sessions” for families with children from 3 to 17, to “Come Meet a Horse.” This includes things like brushing a horse, petting a horse, taking a horse for a walk (age appropriate), and many other activities designed to enhance the experience of being with a horse. (Please note:appropriate risk waiver paperwork will need to be signed by a parent or guardian in order for the children to participate in the “Come Meet a Horse” session). The rate for “Come Meet a Horse” is $20 for a half hour (1/2) session and is for up to 4 children. Or you can choose to have a one-hour (1) session for $40 for up to 4 children.

For more information on either Spirit Mountain Healing Center’s services or for “Come Meet a Horse” sessions, please call/text Michelle at 480-988-2165 or email at

Please, I am asking you to pass this information on to ANYONE you can think of (or for yourself) who needs/wants the benefits from Spirit Mountain Healing Center’s equine assisted life coaching services or ANYONE who has children and are desperately looking for something new and different to do with the children.

It is during trying times when we, as humans, need to pull together and support each other in whatever ways we can. By reducing rates, offering life coaching sessions via phone, Skype, and other technology based platforms, and offering “Come Meet a Horse” sessions, I feel Spirit Mountain Healing Center is doing it’s part to help all of us get through the Coronavirus crisis.

My best wishes to all to stay safe and healthy,

Michelle Goss
Director, Spirit Mountain Healing Center

Michelle Goss has always had a passion for horses and helping people. After earning her Bachelor's degree In Equine Science from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, she went on to start Tailor Made Training, where she instructed adults and children as young as 5 years old. In 2000, she earned her American Riding Instructor Association (ARIA) certification. Michelle has been instructing equestrian students for over 25 years. It was after her divorce; she found herself asking, "Is this all I want to do with my life?" The answer was a resounding "No" so she went back to school to earn her Master's degree in Counseling/Psychology in Equine-Assisted Mental Health from Prescott College. She is now embarking on the next phase of her life journey. Combining her 25 years plus expertise of helping humans and horses and her vast knowledge of horses with her lifetime desire to help people, along with her education in counseling, life coaching, and psychology, Michelle is enthusiastically looking forward to helping humans of all ages who are looking for answers and healing in their lives. “Where Horses Help Humans Heal” is what Michelle and Spirit Mountain Healing Center, are all about.
