Elevate Through Freedom

Personal Growth Experiences Integrating the Spirit of Horses

Life always seems better when we feel free, right?

Hi! I’m Liza Auciello, a licensed psychologist and certified mindfulness instructor. I specialize in three areas:

  1. Improving heart-centered skills that lead to greater confidence, self-love and healing via therapy.
  2. Deepening the horse-human bond and equestrian performance using mindfulness and other powerful strategies.
  3. Increasing team collaboration and effectiveness through leadership coaching and retreats.

Whether we connect virtually or at the ranch, the goal is to assist you in your growth and to create the change you want to see in your life.

My approach to human development is holistic. I blend over 20 years of leadership experience with my skills as a horsewoman, psychologist, meditator and mindful being. To accelerate your growth and healing, I combine my understanding of horse and human behavior, and the mind-body-soul connection with mindfulness, movement, energy and reflective methods.

Why Horses?

Horses are the best teachers. They are straightforward and fair. Their communication is clear. They don’t judge, blame or hold grudges. Their boundaries are well-defined and respectful.
