Equine Therapy

Barbara Bezmenova

Certified Psychologist

Secret Passage Ranch’s horses are here to serve our guests in more ways than one. A therapy session in a unique, peaceful environment is all it takes to start the path to reconnecting with oneself.

Our resident psychologist, Barbara Bezmenova, has decades of experience and practice that has spanned 30+ years. She received two Master’s degrees in Psychology and Social Work. Her goal is to help children and parents build and nurture balanced, harmonious relationships. Barbara is also E.A.G.A.L.A. certified as an Equine-Assisted Mental Health Professional. She uses our ranch’s horses during her therapy sessions to bring clients understanding and self-awareness that empowers them.

Currently, Barbara balances a social work career at Fairfax Public Schools with a private psychologist practice at Secret Passage Ranch. Besides using equine therapy in her sessions, Barbara also uses play therapy, which encourages honest and open communication — the first step to building healthy relationships.
