Lynne Andrade was raised and educated in Boulder, Colorado where she graduated from the University of Colorado with a B.A. in Mathematics in 1987 and graduated from Regis University with her Masters of Counseling in August 2014. In between her two degrees, she worked both in the health field and as a professional musician while raising her two children.
Lynne always loved horses, attaining her dream of riding and having one of her own only as a young adult. Since then she has found horses to be a continued source of inspiration, self-knowledge, strength, and learning about real life. It is through these gracious, beautiful animals that Lynne has gained much knowledge about relationship and connection with others. It seemed only natural to blend her personal experience with her natural desire to help others in her work. This desire led Lynne to become certified with the Equine Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) in 2009. During her Masters program she did her internship at Animal Assisted Therapy Programs of Colorado (AATPC), expanding the concepts she began with in Equine Assisted Therapy (EAP) to working with other animals (dogs, goats, cats, rabbits, rats, chickens). It is Lynne’s sincere hope that in her work with clients, she can be a grounding part of their personal growth journey.
For self-care, Lynne continues to play her violin, currently with Flatirons Community Orchestra. She also goes for long walks with her dogs, rides her horses, and enjoys spending time with friends and her grown children.
