Leslie Cashion, LMFT is a licensed therapist and life-long equestrian. She is uniquely suited to assist you on a journey of discovery of self in partnership with equines in nature. Her priority is connecting with you to collaborate on your journey of healing and self-discovery. She believes we each have answers to our struggles inside of us and sometimes it takes a helpful human or equine guide to discover the pathway to healing. She wants to help provide a safe place to explore who you have been, who you are, and who you want to be in partnership with our equine friends.


Leslie is a feminist, healing-focused, equine assisted psychotherapist who works with individuals, couples, teens, kids, and families. In the office she partners with Nugget her canine therapy partner and in the barn she partners with equines. Before becoming a therapist, Leslie was a professional carriage driving coach and trainer up to the FEI level, but loved working with equines and students at all levels. Most recently, she is passionate about relationships with animals, studying Freedom Based Training and Choice Tribe.
