About Michelle


For Michelle it is a dream realized to stand as sentinel for the horses at The Painted Maze Inc. In addition to the day to day care of the herd she works to educate those unfamiliar with the slaughter-for-profit cycle hundreds of thousands of equines fall victim to each year. Michelle holds an MA in Counseling Psychology and is experienced in the healing potentials of dreaming, meditation, hypnagogia, and ways the symbolic language of non-ordinary states translate into the personal language of the soul. Her passion for healing for both animals and people crystalized one night in a vivid dream about a magical partnership with a wild red roan horse. With this dream a course was set. She sought out an accomplished Horse Constellation Facilitator to engage in a year long mentorship program and continued constellation studies. That program and its rescue horses from the Premarin industry represented a clear picture of how to incorporate this eclectic horse therapy into her work and the urgency of helping horses that suffer at the hands of humans. She sees horses as exemplary models of resilience and the power of harmonious relationship between people, horses, and healing.
