"Walk Intuit has offered me a safe space to heal anxiety, depression and past traumas through attending groups, equine therapy, and individual therapy. I'm beyond grateful for the connections, friendships and support Walk Intuit's beautiful community and highly trained therapists and practitioners provide. Walk Intuit is a huge resource and contribution to our community and I highly recommend them!"
"Grateful to have a gathering like this available."
"I have dealt with trauma and abusive environments in my past and learning how to manage "abilities " as a strength and not weakness...during this workshop seeing and hearing everyone interact while breaking fear barriers is something I will remember for the rest of my life..seeing the shift in people's faces is INCREDIBLE ! .horses were a staple for me when I was younger, school wasn't "safe" for me and home wasn't a "safe" place for me either ...but I had animals ! And I cannot believe how they re entered my life ❤️ I had to leave them abruptly when I was a teen..and never thought I'd be around them again ..I really respect this program and the knowledge that has been provided. It's impressive, and I have a lot to soak up with knowledge. So thank you for having me and whatever I can do to help I am open...right now I am going through massive changes even living wise and relationship wise...so this is really helping me a lot. Somehow we are all still here and still working on ourselves, which is a beautiful thing, and takes courage to do so... especially with horses"
"That retreat was the first time in YEARS I felt who I was and was comfortable with myself in my own skin. I didn't think about using at all, and I found pieces of me that I thought were gone. Something so powerful and beautiful was shining through all of us and I know that is proof that there is a higher power in my life. "
"My experience going on a retreat was transformational for me. I appreciated the guidance and care from Jennifer and her team to truly give me safe space to share ,release and learn more about myself in my journey, I left the retreat feeling a sense of release, peace and clarity. Truly transformational experience , especially being in nature, made the experience even more connective for me. I appreciated the activities that were planned for us as well as the sense of community with others, The experience took me on an unexpected journey of healing to learn more about myself and I left with a sense of great peace."
"Walk Intuit retreat greatly exceeded my expectations. It was by far the best retreat I have been to. The setting, the therapists, the activities all contributed to a very healing experience. I walked away with a deeper spiritual connection and inner peace. I highly recommend it."
"The retreat I went on was absolutely the best thing about the program. It has freed me and impacted my life that will carry with me for the remainder of my days."
"Thank you Jessica & Jennifer for holding space and the opportunity to spend time with all of you amazing & beautiful people. The bond we have is truly something to hold onto. The tools I learned to help with my struggles are already being applied to my daily environment. For this alone, I can't thank you enough. I can't wait to see your smiling faces at the next retreat in June. 💕"
"The healing retreat @ Joshua Tree in March 2017 was one of the most memorable weekends of my life and the beginning of my new life. 🙏💕"
" Amazing people! I'm grateful I got the opportunity to participate in this therapy. It has aided my addiction recovery by getting in touch with myself and nature. I highly recommend it. "
"The different approach to things they have is awesome. Helped me tons! I appreciate the gals so much, they genuinely care about the people they work with."
"Had so much fun, learned a lot about myself through Equine therapy. The staff is outstanding, very caring and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this wonderful experience to others to see for themselves how life changing it really is. Thank you so much ladies for all you have taught me. You're amazing! "
"Great experience; I learned a great deal about myself in a very short period of time. I can't wait to go to another meet-up."
"Really fun & meaningful time with the horses, in nature, & with horse people."
"Equine Therapy was so healing. I was able to move through a lot of past trauma working with the horses. It was so peaceful and calming I really would recommend this therapy for anyone dealing with any kind of trauma."
" Walk Intuit are life changers. Their therapists understand how to help you better understand yourself to help with a positive shift. I learned how to cope with my true self mentally and spiritually through equine therapy and their camping trips. I personally see Walk Intuit as my spiritual guidance through a sometimes frustrating world. I have learned how to accept, understand, love and to be loved through these health retreats and I can say that I now feel free "
"I never liked horses( they always seemed sketchy and spook easy) but I signed up for equine therapy not really knowing what that was. This horse changed my life and love for horses. I remember walking through the stables looking at all the horses. They all seemed basic, big and kinda scary but this outing got me away from the confines of the center. Meeting Koot was different… soft, kind, welcoming or just knew I was not into horses. It may sound silly but we connected as beings ( you can laugh) . I remember coming to the stables and passing every stall to get to Koot."
"Equine Therapy was a voluntary class to take at a treatment center, the recovery center I was in. Initially thought this would be incredibly stupid, and an absolute waste of time. I was 100% wrong. The experience was amazingly incredible. We were told the horses were very intuitive, and I quickly discovered that myself. Dealing with both PTSD and the opiate addiction that came with it, my thoughts and feelings, and my energy output were all negative. And based on the exercise we were doing, the horse I had chosen reacted negatively. About to give up, I cleared my mind and tried my best to find peace, and for the first time that afternoon, the horse did a total about face, and the exercise took an unexpected and life changing turn. From that moment on, I knew I had to face the horrors of my past if I were to have a future. The horses, and the incredible staff, at Intuit are simply amazing. If you put your all in it, you will walk out of the therapy with a new insight. The staff are caring and compassionate, and clearly love what they are doing. They will listen if you want to talk. They will allow you to be as open or as quiet as you wish. I cannot recommend Intuit and the Equine Therapy enough. What I experienced there is a story I share to this day, now a month shy of a year since I was there. I promise you, if you enter the therapy with Intuit with an open mind, your life will be altered in ways that you never thought possible."
" As a grad student and early career therapist I could only hope that a place like Walkintuit existed. The environment of acceptance and support for clients, partnered with the extensive training provided to the clinical team, create a unique experience of healing for our clients. I consider myself fortunate to be a part of a practice that is changing lives in such a compassionate and beautiful space. "
"Walk Intuit was a breath of fresh air when I found them. They fully supported and encouraged me in interweaving many of my yogic and other holistic modalities in working with clients in their healing journey’s. They have supported me in learning how to integrate these modalities into my work clinically to support my clients in their process of self discovery and individuation. I was seeking an organization that supported the healing of people from past trauma, big loss and transition, and attachment ruptures without pathologizing and coming up with prescriptive solutions that only address the symptoms clients are struggling with. At Walk Intuit together with clients we take the necessary steps to address the root causes of our suffering for one’s self agency and liberation."
"I learned so much through my experience at Walk Intuit. Jennifer and Jessica have created such a strong, loving community. It felt like home right away and I always enjoyed connecting with them and the other therapists there. I always felt supported as a therapist and as a person and would look forward to our supervision all together. Working with clients, horses, and learning about different practices such as somatic work and inner child work, expanded me not just as a therapist, but as a person as well. The spiritual perspective Walk Intuit emanates spoke to my soul deeply. Walk Intuit nurtures and welcomes a mind, body, spirit approach to therapy, which is something I value. I always felt accepted and encouraged to be myself in this loving environment. They truly care about their clients, the earth, and humanity as a whole. My time at Walk Intuit is something I will treasure forever and I am so grateful for my experience there." -Angela
"I have worked with local and international nonprofits for over 15 years, and I have never loved working anywhere as much as I have loved working with Walk Intuit. It is almost impossible to convey the magic of this organization, which is felt by almost every single client that encounters Walk Intuit. The founders, Jennifer and Jessica, have created a safe space of warmth and healing that feels like home to so many. Every therapist here shares a vision of a client-led model, where we meet the client where they are and allow them to guide us towards their own goals. We believe that the clients are the experts, and we are the shepherds that can lead them into their own light. "
"The journey to becoming a therapist is a unique path, one that requires a deeper level of vulnerability. I found my way to the Walk Intuit team during a time in my career when I needed it most. Walk Intuit offered me a space of belonging, respect, kindness, compassion, support, encouragement, and understanding. Jennifer and Jessica embody their roles as leaders, mentors, healers and teachers. They offered encouragement to be my most authentic self, empowered me to reach outside of my comfort zone, welcomed creativity, and permission to learn without fear of judgement. I was embraced as a human first and always felt cared for. When I reached a point in my development where I was ready to launch into new adventures, I was fully supported and left knowing that there will always be a space to return to. I look forward to the day when our paths cross again and I am immensely grateful for the soul connections made at Walk Intuit."
