About Lasell

It’s our nature to get along.

Lasell Jaretzki Bartlett – sometimes known as The Horsey Therapist – expresses her pioneer spirit through writing and in person – as horsewoman, educator, and somatic therapist – helping people navigate the internalized landscapes of their relationships with themselves and other beings. As a near-death survivor, Lasell embraces grief and resilience, seeking to make meaning of life and bring light to both living and dying.

Lasell works with those who seek to shift into flow from stuck patterns that are rooted in survival strategies from earlier life.

Lasell volunteers frequently to assist Somatic Experiencing trainings here in the US and abroad, in alignment with her valuing the importance of this body- and physiology-based work, facilitating people as they change their nervous systems, renegotiate trauma, and move into living a life more flowing with presence, confidence, and pleasure. It is not always an easy journey but it’s doable. She also assists EQUUSOMA trainings, and is an approved session provider for both trainings, and approved consultant for EQUUSOMA at all levels, and SE at beginning level.

Lasell started this path over fifty years ago as a meditator on a spiritual quest, in search of embodiment and nurturing relationships. She values connection, curiosity, creativity, and playfulness. Her life – both personally and professionally – is guided by a mix of Eastern and Western principles.

She lives in rural Virginia with her beloved and a variety of animal friends. She enjoys all things horsey, writing, gardening, travel, music, and dance.
