Linda Myers, MA, LICDC-CS, LPC, has more than 22 years of experience in equine-assisted therapy and learning techniques.
Trained initially by Equine Services in Loa, Utah, before the formation of EAGALA, Linda served as co-chair to the new EAGALA organization for the first six years of its founding. She and Greg Kersten often teamed up to train therapists and equine specialists in the techniques that came to be known as equine-assisted therapy and learning. Linda was the first in Ohio to be trained, the first in the US to reach what was then known as Level III in EAP techniques, and the first in Ohio to establish an EAGALA based counseling service.
Currently retired, Linda is offering consultation services to new as well as established programs. Services include guidance and direction, especially in: areas related to needs assessment (where are the gaps in services in your community?), program development (how to prepare an individualized program for each of the groups you serve), follow-up (keeping in contact with your referral sources by sharing your success), and specific curriculum on which to build your success.
