Who is Wyatt Webb? He is a native of a 250-person town in rural Georgia who survived two decades in the music industry as a country singer who toured the country 50 weeks a year. Realizing that he was practically killing himself due to a drug-and-alcohol abuse problem, Webb sought therapy, which led him to quit the entertainment industry to study methods of therapy. A job at his original rehab center in Nashville led him to become the head of the juvenile treatment program at Arizonaâ€™s famed Sierra Tucson facility. Eventually Webb would become one of the most creative, unconventional, and sought-after therapists in the country. He is a man whom people flock to see, and one whom corporations hire to solve their people problems.<br><br>
People are connected to the tall, gray-haired man, and through this bond, they start to reclaim parts of themselves at his (very) OK-Corral. <br><br>For Webb, itâ€™s all about making a connection and getting rid of self-doubt and fear.
Those who want to connect have issues that include mental, physical, and emotional abuse related to marriages on the rocks; parent-child relationships gone bad; and much worse concerns, including rape and abandonment.
The first step to healing is connecting with that large, furry beast called the horse. But how can a horse help you find comfort, happiness, and yourself?
A horse can help a rape victim find peace. It can teach a power-hungry Wall Street executive how to relax. It can nudge a middle-aged woman who curls up each night with a TV and a few forgotten dreams into opening her heart and finding love again.
For Webbâ€™s patients, itâ€™s not about the horse. Itâ€™s about the man. Wyatt is currently the founder and leader of the Equine Experience at Miraval, one of the nation's top resorts, which is located in Tucson, Arizona.
