Lindsay Detlie, LCSW


Currently Not Accepting New Clients

I am Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 5 years experience in treating survivors of trauma due to interpersonal violence. I believe in an integrated approach with a focus on the therapeutic relationship that infuses EMDR, IFS, and experiential modalities. This includes Equine Assisted Therapy, where horses act as co-therapists to help individuals better understand themselves and build a sense of internal trust and confidence. I provide individual equine therapy sessions tailored to each person's individual goals and needs. Sessions are typically weekly or bi-monthly. Group workshops will also be provided intermittently. Equine sessions are hosted at Bent Post Farm in Afton, VA with the assistance of Louise Goodling and her equines. If equine therapy does not sound like the right fit for you, then consider Charlottesville Empowerment: Counseling and Wellness Services, a group practice with which I am a part of. You can learn more about Louise Goodling or Charlottesville Empowerment under the "Other Resources" tab above.

What to Expect:


To begin equine assisted therapy sessions we will first meet via video call to review in-take paperwork, collect some history, and determine what you are hoping to gain from equine assisted therapy. Our second session will take place out at the farm, where we will complete any lingering paperwork and introduce you to the space and animals. Everything will be done at your pace and the equines will be incorporated in various ways at different points during the course or your treatment. All interaction with the equines will be done on the ground, meaning there is no riding involved, and will span from them merely being present with us, to grooming, or leading. My hope for all client's is for their equine partner to become a resource that generates feelings of safety and trust through mutual connection and respect.
