Spirit Reins was established in 2003 with the purpose of providing life-changing therapy to children suffering from the devastating effects of abuse, neglect and other traumatic events. Our vision is a world where all children who have experienced trauma grow into healthy, productive adults and break the generational cycle of abuse. We are a trauma specialty center, using the Natural Lifemanship® model of trauma-focused therapy throughout our mental health services. In 2010, we hired the founders of Natural Lifemanship® as Program Director and Clinical Director. In 2013, with a staff that included one full-time and four part-time contract therapists and one full-time and two part-time contract equine specialists, we served 249 children and family members from Williamson, Travis and surrounding counties. The primary population served is comprised of biological, foster and adopted children who range in age from 3-17 and represent a broad spectrum of socioeconomic levels. Many have been touched by the child welfare system and come to us through referrals from community partners that include The Center for Child Protection, Communities in Schools, Texas Baptist Children's Home, A World for Children, The Travis County Juvenile Probation Department and Travis County Integral Care.
