Girl and Horse


Hillhaven Hollow is a Horse Farm that specializes in mental health therapeutic services. We offer equine facilitated learning and equine facilitated psychotherapy. We also offer substance abuse counseling and traditional talk therapy. All of our equine services are worked from the ground only. We do not offer riding since the horses are retired and not currently able to provide rides. The horses are our partners and are respected and treated as partners in the EFL/EFP sessions. 

We work with all types of people and we are inclusive and support diversity equity and inclusion. We focus on couples counseling, families, veterans, and individuals. We are trauma certified and specialize in helping those with cancer diagnoses, families in divorce, religious trauma and so much more. We invite you to contact us to discover if we can help you with your needs. We provide a free 15 minute consultation phone call.

Miranda Velasquez is a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, CCTP, and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, supervised by Dr. Laurie Hightower LMFT-S, LPC-S. Miranda has been certified in EFL since 2018 through the HERD Institute and is in the process of becoming certified in EFP.

At Hillhaven Hollow we feel incredibly lucky that we get to do what we love. We’d love for you to take part in the Hillhaven Hollow experience. For more information, get in touch!

Equine Facilitated Learning

Equine Facilitated Learning can help you make changes in your life that are not related to mental health therapy. You may want to develop greater self-esteem, learn how to communicate more effectively or develop deeper relationships. EFL is more about coaching an individual to grow in ways they aren't achieving alone. Miranda has been a life coach since 2018 and now combines Life Coaching with horses in EFL.

Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy

Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy combines horses with the power of traditional counseling to develop a therapeutic approach to healing the mental health of individuals. Working with horses can help you learn to build deep, intimate relationships, grow in authenticity, develop your instincts, lead, grow, support, instill boundaries and so much more. EFP is a wonderful approach for families, couples, individuals and groups. Everyone can benefit from healing with horses.

Chemical Dependency Counseling

Miranda offers chemical dependency counseling with horses or in a talk therapy format. Addiction can be very scary for families and friends of those using substances. Miranda has worked with many addicts who have gone on to be fully recovered. A support system is necessary and sometimes that may come in animal form rather than human form especially if the addict feels a lack of trust or fear of judgment.
