Nick Bales BTR Foundation

The Nick Bales / BTR Foundation consists of helping support teens suffering from mental health issues and aiding in the prevention of teen suicide. The Foundation takes a non-traditional approach because mental illness is not the same for everyone.  Therefore, BTR supports a variety of uncoventioal therapies, including horse therapy, dog therapy, wilderness adventures and so on.  If we can help to erase the stigma of mental health and save just one life, BTR has succeeded. 

We are proud to sponsor the annual Nick Bales BTR Scholarship.

In loving memory of Nick Bales.




If you have found your way to this site, it is likely you or a family member are struggling within your relationships, or are challenged by difficult past life events.  Perhaps you have already consulted with other therapists and physicians with little reprieve, or are just at the end of your own rope. Well, you have come to the right place. I can help you or your family system gently shift into greater abilities for conscious choice, connection, communication and trust. 

Through Gestalt Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, Family Intensives, and Relational Horsemanship, my goal is to help create beautiful relationships. For over 40 years I have been successfully guiding clients and students toward a more authentic and empowered way of living. I offer therapy sessions, parenting and human development classes, and a variety of therapeutic and horsemanship workshops (single and multi-day) throughout Colorado and the Front Range. I also travel throughout the US and various countries teaching, facilitating intensive therapy, and working with horses and their people. 

 Many I speak with share that they desire more connection with themselves and those they love, more connection with their horse, and more connection with the natural world. I have dedicated my life to facilitating the recovery and deepening of such relationships.  My passion and gift is providing a path for this to occur, so take a deep breath, and let us begin on this path together...

Holistic, Individualized and Evidence-based.

When we were babies, we babbled along with nursery rhymes and learned speech.  When we were toddlers, music helped us understand our world and learn our language.  When we were school-age, we sang our ABC's and learned to read. And on we went: utilizing music to continuously propel ourselves forward in self-actualization.  Music helped us process our teenage break-ups and created a safe space from which to move forward.  Music brought us together during both times of celebration and times of loss. Finger tips on keys, bows in hands and breath on microphones made sure we knew we were never alone.   

Through extensive research on music perception in the brain, we know the "how" and "why" of neuroplasticity and mirror neurons which lead to meaningful changes in brain structure and chemistry.  At Music Plus, we're focusing on the "what" or the result. Of course there will be music and movement, but what else? What physical, cognitive, socio-emotional, behavioral result will you finally gain through music?
