Beverly Walsh, PhD

Beverly Walsh, PhD

Beverly earned her doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Texas A&M University in 1995 and has been a Licensed Psychologist in the State of Texas since 1996. Beverly started her professional life in a traditional, office-based setting, but that all changed when she attended her first EAGALA training in 2009 and Natural Lifemanship (NL) training in 2011. Understanding that people tend to learn better experientially, noting that horses are great teachers, she quickly moved out of the office and into the pasture to help people “experience stable relationships”. Using TF-EAP, Beverly has a full EAP/EAL private practice at Red Dun Ranch in Houston, TX. With her equine partners, she offers individual, family, and group EAP, as well as EAL workshops and retreats. She specializes in working with children and teens, as well as their families. Many of her clients present with ADHD, mood disorders, ASD, anxiety, substance abuse, and parent-child relationship problems.

My husband and I live with 5 Haflinger horses, 5 donkeys, a llama, 2 dogs, 2 parrots and many chickens! They are our teachers, partners, friends and family of choice. We live 45 minutes outside of Knoxville, Tennessee, in a community called Powder Springs. We look forward to meeting and learning from others on this pathway of Natural Lifemanship!

JAMES HARLOW, MA, LPC

JAMES HARLOW, MA, LPC

I came to counseling later in life. I was self-employed in an entirely different business for over 30 years. During that time, my wife and I adopted 5 children through the foster care system in Texas. They came individually at different ages and from different backgrounds, some quite traumatic. I have seen and experienced significant effects of developmental trauma as I have parented my children. After obtaining my counseling degree, I was privileged to work with Karyn Purvis at the TCU Institute of Child Development and learned about how trauma affects the brain through the research that they and others have done over the past 15 years. I am excited to be able to learn more about how to practically open doors for my clients through the TF-EAP program. I am now practicing NL TF-EAP at our property just east of Dallas with my wife as the equine professional on the team. I am enthusiastic about the hope this therapy brings for so many people constrained by their history.

Therapy is provided for challenges such as: Trauma (E.g. military, sexual assault, physical abuse, accidents) Anxiety Depression Couples Counseling Family Therapy Grief I take a holistic approach to mental health. What does this mean? Take grief for example. When someone is grieving, they may experience a loss of appetite or excessive hunger. Physical symptoms may appear such as headaches or stomach aches. A holistic approach considers all of these factors when developing a treatment plan.

It was brought to my attention I looked a little 'frowny' in my profile pic. That friend did a little editing and this was the result. And then there was a dare . . . At Discovery Horse we strive to simply do what works and let the rest go. That includes a lot of 'shoulds'. In this instance there is a small voice in my head whispering 'you should look more professional'. I have found that all those 'shoulds' keep me small and disconnected. In the spirit of walking my talk . . . .
