Pia Jansen is an internationally renowned psycho therapist with an emphasis on Experiential Healing and Learning. After receiving her Master’s in Child and Family Therapy from the University of Amsterdam in 1987, she traveled the world for 8 years providing and teaching Wilderness therapy.
After her arrival in the USA she became counselor and activist for victims of domestic violence and refugees from warn torn countries. Her advocacy resulted in numerous international publications on the correlation between human violence and animal cruelty.
In 2010 she made the leap from being a more traditional therapist to equine assisted therapy and became an advanced clinician as well as mentor for EAGALA.
She is honored to work with her “Unbrilded” herd of six horses and two miniature donkeys every day; providing healing for children, adults, couples and families.
Janada Halbisen-Gibbs is an EAGALA Certified Equine Specialist at Triple T Haven. She is committed to holding safe space for trauma survivors to find their own healing with horses. Janada felt a profound connection with horses from early childhood and could always be found in the middle of the herd. She has followed her passion by volunteering at Equine Rescues and Sanctuaries all over the United States. Along the way, Janada explored various modalities to support horses’ physical and emotional health. She has studied with Kathy Malone of Blue Gate Horse in Glacial Horsemanship, Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute, The Masterson Method and, of course, with the greatest teachers of them all, the horses themselves. It was through this journey that Janada was led to Equine Assisted Therapy and EAGALA. She resonates with the powerful practice of holding space and client-led experiential therapy. “Be where you are, the horses will meet you there”
Janada is a passionate advocate and facilitator for healing trauma and resilience practices. She is an avid explorer of therapeutic modalities and how to support them in partnership with horses. In addition to her EAGALA certification, Janada attended The Academy for Coaching with Horses. In 2014, she created and co-facilitated a retreat for therapists to explore compassion fatigue resilience practices with horses, mindfulness meditation and nature immersion.
Janada currently lives in Loveland, CO. She loves spending time with the healing herd at Triple T Haven and exploring nature with her family.
Heather Schulte is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a doctorate in counseling psychology and a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from the University of Northern Colorado. She has worked as a school psychologist and for residential treatment centers, day treatment programs and community mental health centers. For the past twelve years she has worked in private practice treating children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. Her training includes dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), addiction counseling and EMDR. She believes in the resiliency of people and in the power of animals to assist in the healing process.
Growing up in Kansas City, Missouri, Heather had an interest in children and their development from early on. She followed the example of her grandmother, a teacher in a one room school house, and initially pursued an education career, earning her bachelor’s degree in Special Education from the University of Missouri-Columbia. Heather recognized, however, that many of the children she served were struggling with emotional and mental health problems, and she realized her calling was psychology. Accordingly, she moved to Colorado in 1994 to attend graduate school.
Heather is married with three children. She is involved in her church and hosted a playgroup there to help young mothers connect with one another. She is a loyal Royals and Broncos fan. (Don’t tell her mom back in Kansas City about the last one.) Away from the office, she spends time with her family and looks forward to trips into the mountains to relax and recharge. She also enjoys a good sing-a-long in the car and reading anything from nonfiction to fiction.
