Making Connections and EXPERIENCING Growth By Serving Others

β€œLet us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9



Horse and Soul Counseling and Higgins Hills Farm offer opportunities to learn a wide range of information from agriculture science, psychotherapeutic counseling services, animal assisted therapeutic services, and animal care. This is an opportunity to obtain work experience while being directly in the helping professional and/or agriculture field. You will have supervisors who specialize in horse behaviors, carry professional counseling licenses, and have years experience managing a business. You will have opportunities to consult and work directly with our Executive Director of Operations who maintains all business procedures for the farm and counseling business at this site. This is a diverse internship experience. It requires you going through our hiring process, providing a resume, and obtaining additional trainings provided by this establishment.



Residency Supervision

You must be approved by the Virginia Board of Counseling in order to qualify for our residency program and receive supervision from our Board Approved Supervisor, Tara E. Higgins, MA, LPC. You may obtain those requirements by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. This is an excellent opportunity to learn diverse treatment options that take the belief our visitors have the ability to come up with their own solutions in the counseling process. We primarily conduct experiential counseling services, but take an integrative approach to best meet the individual being served.
