Guided imagery can help integrate universal values of kindness and love. In Teresa’s work with children throughout the world for the past 28 years, she has utilized her story-based imagery and music to help children form stronger character-based identities, relieve stress and pain, and manifest positive change as a natural part of their education.” Dr. Kathryn de PlanqueUCLA Children's Pain Specialist and Former Psychological Services Director for La Canada School District“Dr. Teresa Henkle Langness provided priceless assistance to me and our family during our little grandson’s experience with his parents’ divorce.

That gave the girls courage to ask Trish if she thought the Ready to Ride Club would be ready to ride in a real horse show at the end of August. “Of course, you’ll be ready to show…But maybe not ready to win,” Trish said. What would happen when the girls competed against each other?
