    I am the Owner/Founder of Horses Healing Veterans of Central IL. I hold a Masters of Arts Degree in Psychology and have extensive equine experience. I have worked in the field of Mental Health for over 20 years in a variety of settings. I started HHVCI one year ago after recognizing the need for Veterans to have access to a program that allows them to begin the healing process from that profound invisible wound of war PTSD.
