1:1 Equus Coaching

Access Your Inner Leader


If you feel like you need help discovering your life’s purpose or you are uncertain about what’s next for you on your life’s journey,  my one-on-one coaching can help you access a more authentic and leaderful way of being in both your personal and professional lives.

Coaching can help bring clarity about identifying your core values and the unconscious beliefs that are preventing you from creating the life you want for yourself. What makes my coaching approach so unique lies in my intuitive understanding of how horses are perfect mirrors for the unconscious operating system that holds us back from living to our full potential. My intuitive facilitation of clients’ interactions with the herd reveals what lies beyond the masks and defenses we accumulate over a lifetime. My equine assisted coaching helps my clients find clarity about what’s getting in the way of their achieving personal and professional goals, and calls them forward by asking them to form a deeper trust with themselves. My coaching is grounded in my belief that everyone has the capacity to live with purpose and fulfillment and pursue a higher calling in this world.


You may find yourself here because…  

Burn out is threatening to consume you, and you lack the discipline and clarity to create the necessary changes to shift that.

You are feeling moved or pulled to a new vision that you know is going to stretch you in your leadership and how you show up in the world, and you recognize you need someone to hold a space for you as you step into it.

You find yourself getting blown off course by your own inner saboteurs, unable to wrangle the thoughts and beliefs that are operating loudly within you that take you away from your path instead of towards it.

You are on the verge of an uplevel and expansion that calls for you to anchor deeply into your values and the innate of your strengths, and you are seeking to be reminded of what those are so you can travel that stairway upwards with a state of grace and connection to what your purpose is.


If you find yourself here, it is because you feel an undeniable calling for change and to step boldly in your vision for your purpose and also your life. A calling that you are feeling both inspired and terrified by.

I believe deeply in the potential of who we are as human beings, our capacity to manifest incredible things in our world and also live in a way that creates fulfillment in both our personal and professional spaces.

It is not about sacrifice and abandonment.

Rather, it is about the rise of true power and vision so you can align yourself to the highest version of yourself that you are being invited to journey with.  This is the dharma and opportunity to say yes to a space and a pathway that takes you beyond your spaces of limitations and doubts and into creating in alignment with the part of you that sees and knows who she really is.

What is the Power of Equus Coaching?

It is difficult for us to get a pure read on our own energy, to dismantle the beliefs and patterns that seek to bridle us in our lives instead of pointing us towards freedom.

We receive feedback in our world that is biased and filtered---including our own---so it makes it difficult for us to trust what is being reflected back to us.

And we are being fed information that is mostly coming from a place of fear which is given through ego that keeps us in a place of disconnection.

The underlying current of what is driving you is a deep desire to be connected to something different, to be plugged in and connected to a source of wisdom that feels pure, balanced, and creates true wisdom and direction in your life, leadership and space of greater calling and purpose.

Working in the space of horses, and with my coaching, you are given a place of mirroring that is based on the sensitivity and wisdom of soul and energy.

Where we are led back to the places of authenticity within ourselves, given reflection on where we are out of alignment, and led back to a place where we have clarity, discernment and trust with our own intuition and where it is leading us.

Horses are a metaphor and a powerful archetype to partner with. One which awaken us to our true nature, innate strengths and reminds us of the values and beliefs that resonate with our soul and authentic self. When we create and lead from this space, we are empowered, we are clear, we are grounded. We hold sacred boundaries in our lives, we give space to our creativity and we are masters of our ego.

"I had long desired some space and time to rework my business model and long-term vision. My surroundings, accommodations, the lodge, and the ridiculously good food helped me focus.

I wanted to understand and own my leadership style and map out a business plan that is in sync with the rest of my life–a holistic approach. To me, that was A LOT to accomplish in three days.

Right away, Hillary was able to sort out all of my desired outcomes and helped design a process to make it happen. We co-created a plan that would get me exactly what I needed. I’ve worked with several coaches over the past few years and I’ve gained insights for my business, but I felt like Hillary really got what I do, how I show up, and what I want. She was able to help me uncover my strengths, natural style, and the path to success on my terms.

I was finally able to pull together ideas, concepts, and offerings that I’d been struggling to bring into focus for years. It felt aligned to me, rather than following someone’s step-by-step program. Hillary also shared her entrepreneurial journey which was helpful. Her transparency and generosity are much appreciated.

- Jocelyn Ring
"Hillary offers the gift of a safe place so you can lean into your possibilities. She helped me to see my true strengths (that I once thought of as failure and weakness.) She tells the truth and is as authentic as they come!"

- Holly Anne
"Hillary is a carrier of ancient wisdom. She has such an old soul on an incredible path in this lifetime. She cuts to the heart of each situation with a gentle firmness. She is honest and incredibly grounded and her level of giving is incredible. She's an amazing coach because of her natural understanding of a person's sacred work."

- Jackie Deblasio
"Hillary has this incredible capacity to hold space for the sort of profound transformation that would otherwise be excruciating to get through. She also has this rare ability to reach into one's field and make subtle energetic adjustments or tweaks to help everything fall into alignment.

It's energy work, but there's something about Hillary's approach that focuses more on growth and optimization-- as opposed to healing-- that resonated with me from the beginning. The availability of her horses and their desire to serve is absolute magic."

- Siona Van Dyck
"I felt a little anxious at first. But when Hillary walked into the room it felt like this mist of peace rested over the space. Gently sprinkled with hay and rugged up from the outdoor chill, she looked like an angel. When we hugged I felt the rawness of sisterhood.

I didn't need to say anything to her, she knew, she felt what I was going through... she got it. I felt an amazing moment of release."

- Cate
"Hillary is a bridge to help others discover their strengths & gifts and make the world a better place! She is the perfect combination of spiritual and straight up common sense wisdom for life. She refueled my sensitive spirit by helping me learn to manage my empathy for others without allowing my soul to be sucked dry.

Crazy, enlightened stuff is happening for me. I'm learning about myself and picturing myself in ways I never had before. I am doing the practices she taught me and I'm enjoying the new journey!"

- Danielle Oates

“Despite over 400 hours of coach training and leadership skills, I was still struggling to understand what my form of leadership really is. During the time I spent with Hillary on her gorgeous ranch, my life completely changed.  

When we arrived in the pasture, we sat some distance away from the horses and started talking. I shared how I cannot tolerate women spending their lives playing out the affects of difficult experiences that are long over.

All of a sudden, one horse lifted his head and walked straight up to me, stopping only inches from my legs. Then he put his head directly over mine.  

While we continued talking the horse starting flicking my journal with his nose as if to say, “Are you getting this?”  I didn’t start writing immediately, so that horse gently nudged my head. At that point I started taking notes as our conversation unfolded. 

When we were finished, I asked Hillary about that horse. She replied, “That is Shiva, named after the Hindu God known to be the destroyer of false beliefs.”  

I got it. Then the horse turned and walked away. His job was done.  

That moment was a gift to me—it shined a light on the uncertainty I had around what I speak about. I was flooded with ideas to make it real in my work. 

There were many other circumstances with the horses that brought important lessons to the surface. I learned I needed to stop talking about things and really start doing.

When I returned home I founded The Ellis Institute (www.ellisinstitute.com), begin a daily yoga practice, and finished writing my first book which launched on Amazon in August. I also started my podcast, Clarity Quest, on iTunes and began my Youtube channel.  

In addition, I’ve launched a 12-week companion program to my book which filled for a September launch.

I know, without a doubt, that the decision to work with Hillary and her herd helped me manifest of The Ellis Institute.

My work came to life with passion and total clarity.”
