This is Michelle Goss, Spirit Mountain Healing Center’s Director writing this post in the midst of the Coronavirus chaos in our lives. Even though things are still uncertain and there is still chaos about what is going to happen next with this 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 crisis 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 do I take feed my 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.
SMHC is still open for in-person sessions with the horses as well as offering life coaching and counseling services via phone, Skype, and Zoom. 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.
At Spirit Mountain Healing Center, horses help humans heal. Center Director Michelle Goss believes through the interactions of humans and horses, life issues stemming from relationship problems, traumas, PTSD issues and many, many other life issues can be improved and healed. Michelle has personally experienced the healing power horses have when dealing with issues of the human heart and spirit. And it is from her beliefs and personal experience she is welcoming you to start your journey of self-discovery and healing with horses. The life-healing power horses have for humans is horses live in the present moment and do not focus as much on the past or the future as humans have a tendency to do. Therefore, horses lend themselves as the perfect animal to help heal humans who have wounded hearts and spirits. Michelle invites you to come experience the deep healing and life-changing programs working with horses that are offered at Spirit Mountain Healing Center, LLC. “Where Horses Help Humans Grow, Connect, and Heal.”
Horses bring us back to simplicity so we can process the complexity of our lives.
Our mission here at Spirit Mountain Healing Center, LLC is to coach youth, adults, families, and businesses in both individual and group settings in behavioral, emotional, and social areas of growth and learning by engaging in meaningful and worthwhile work with horses and for clients to be able to take and use the experiences in all aspects of their lives through Equine Assisted Life Coaching.
Meet Michelle Goss
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 Grow, Connect, and Heal” is what Michelle and Spirit Mountain Healing Center, are all about.
