Dear Visitors to the Pegasus Equine Therapy, LLC Website…

From Kay Alexander, Licensed Clinical Social Worker & Founder of Pegasus Equine Therapy

On January 1, 2022, I closed the gates to Pegasus Equine Therapy, LLC, and the horses who were helpful to so many people are now “out to pasture” 24/7 and enjoying themselves! After 8 years of providing mental health services, utilizing equine therapy, to children, youth, families and older persons, I decided to retire as I am now an older person too!

In the 35+ years I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Work, working in a variety of mental health settings, teaching at Colorado Mesa University, and serving in the Colorado State Legislature, I have experienced and seen how some of the systems involved with children, youth and families who have experienced trauma are not very knowledgeable nor very sensitive to the needs of these populations.

At this time in my life, I would like to work with others in being a voice for children and families in affecting positive change in these systems.

Please stay in touch with me as I explore how best to advocate for children, youth and families. You may want to join me in this effort!!

Blessings to you this New Year, 2022!
