Beth Ratchford

I’m a therapist in private practice in Leesburg and am a certified mental health professional through the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA). I’m also the founder of True Self Journey, a community dedicated to supporting folks on their journey of healing from childhood trauma.

I came to Bridle Paths in 2015 because I was looking for an equine-assisted psychotherapy option for my clients. I quickly figured out that there was something unique happening at Bridle Paths and knew I wanted to be a part of it. My work with clients at Bridle Paths has had a deep impact on their healing and recovery. And it has done the same for me. I’m honored to get to be a part of the unfolding story of Bridle Paths.

Outside of work I enjoy all things barn related, including scooping poop! I love going on adventures with my rescue pup, Maisie.
