Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Tricia B. Wilmoth.
Dr. Wilmoth, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Born in Canada with an Uncle who served with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, a love of horses was built into my DNA. After receiving my Masters Degree and Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia, I moved to Florida and opened my private practice in 1980 as a Florida Licensed Psychologist (2696) and became a Continuing Education Provider in Hypnosis from 1996 to 2000- I was certified as an approved consultant by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis and have utilized hypnotherapy for treatment of problems ranging from habit control and interpersonal skills to specifically developed trances for patients with cancer or chronic pain.
Over the years, I have presented papers Nationally and internationally on a variety of topics as well as appearances on radio, television and in the press.
After many years in a thriving suburban practice, I discovered Equine Assisted Psyctrotherapy and subsequently bought a ranch in Brooksville in 2002, which I called the White Light Ranch.
While I developed the Healing with Horses Program implementing equine assisted psychotherapy for a wide variety of clinical issues from PTSD to autism. After 13 years of practicing Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, I decided it was time to downsize and move to Georgia. During my trip to Atlanta in January of 2015, I received Life Coach Certification through the Life Coach lnstitute of Orange County. ln August 2016 I became a Licensed Psychologist (#4041) in Georgia.
I have been lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time for much of my life. Often, I have been ahead of my time so slightly misunderstood. I went from a strict behavioral scientist to a larger understanding of the universe based on the unconscious mind and the principles of physics.
My training has led me through many changes and I continue to evolve and grow with each day.
This is the inspiration that I bring to my clients. Patients will ask me if they are too old to change and my response is ” Are you still breathing?
I am currently working on a book called, “It’s Not Too Late!”
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Many, many challenges. It is what has made the journey so interesting.
Owning a twenty acre horse ranch and beginning to do breeding, there was a very steep learning curve. In Florida, I was at the ranch during the horrible year of hurricanes in 2005. I had to put beloved horses down and pets down. I fought off cottonmouth snakes and wild boars, as well as a panther.
Attempting to get my Georgia license was a major hurdle since I had graduated so long ago.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
My years of experience and diversity of applications set me apart from others. With hypnosis, my background in English has made me a master story teller with most people only requiring one session to accomplish their goals.
As an Equine Assisted Psychotherapist I continue to be asked to present my Healing with Horses workshops to this day.
What were you like growing up?
I was a quiet yet adventurous child. I loved being outdoors and around animals. I was athletic and tried many different sports with varying degrees of success.
