Lorisa Lewis obtained her BS in Psychology from Florida State University and her MS in Clinical Psychology from the University of Central Florida in 1985.  She bacame licensed as a Mental Health Counselor in 1987 and has had an established private practice in Central Florida since 1989.  Having been a horsewoman for more than half of her life, merging horses with therapy has been a natural fit for her.  In addition to her clinical psychology training, she is also trained in the EAGALA model of equine assisted psychotherapy and learning, meets the EAGALA standard for Equine Specialist and is a CHA certified riding instructor in both English and Western disciplines.   In 2008 she established Stable Foundations which offers equine assisted growth and learning services, teambuilding workshops, professional trainings and equine assisted program development and consultation. As a specialist in PTSD and trauma, she has presented at numerous professional conferences on both trauma treatment as well as equine assisted therapy techniques.   She currently maintains a part time office-based practice in Oviedo, Florida but finds that she enjoys being outside more than inside most days.   She is an approved clinical supervisor by the State of Florida licensure board and works in multiple locations throughout Central Florida, including her own farm in the Winter Springs area, providing equine assisted psychotherapy and learning services to a variety of populations.  

 

Stable Foundations utilizes only experienced and licensed mental health professionals and highly qualified equine professionals to provide services according to need at all of our locations.  We adhere to the strictest of professional and safety standards in all of our work.
