Hi, I'm Carly

Hi, I'm Carly

A practicing Registered Nurse gone rogue. What's that you say? I have a heart for people and desire more for their healing process than what is currently offered at the bedside. I call myself 'lucky enough' to be born and raised a proud Montanan and currently live in Bozeman with my husband, Haakon, our 2 dogs, and horses. My top values are authenticity and connection and my hunger has always been to work alongside others in their most vulnerable of moments. To me, there is a sacred privilege in experiencing the rawness of humanity. A tragic turning point in my life has directed me on this path of seeking higher healing and discovery of the heart via the rich guidance of horses.


My passion lies in looking past the identifiable symptoms of trauma and getting down into the depths of the soul. I underwent extensive training for two years as a student of Melisa Pearce, a well renowned psychotherapist and horsewoman and founder of the Touched By a Horse® Certification Program. Using the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method, I work together with my equine partners to help recover the deepest parts of self, bring them to light, and finish the unfinished business that so commonly plagues our day-to-day lives. The experience I offer in the round pen is poignant, cutting edge, and unlike anything offered in today's field of therapy or equine therapy.

"Carly is who you need. Deep, forward, direct; she will know how to accompany you at your pace. Attentive and connected, she knows to seize the moment for your truth to emerge and clarity to appear. Her horse brings to light what is at stake for you. Don't wait! Book a session and reclaim your life."

our method

we hurt + we burn + we bloom

The Equine Gestalt Coaching Method was developed by Melisa Pearce, a core founder since 1989 of the horse-human healing movement. The experiential nature of the method involves the horse as an active partner with the coach in the client's exploratory process. The integrative approach of the equine's interaction combined with positive coaching, somatic awareness guidance and Gestald methodology assists the client in examining his or her life and choices made with a focus on designing a positive future.
