Kay Trotter, Ph.D, LPC-S, RPT-S is the founder of Kaleidoscope Behavioral Health in Flower Mound, Texas, just northwest of Dallas. Her program provides a beautiful space where clients feel valued and cared for, enabling the gift of healing to flow freely. Her website can be found at kaleidoscopebehavioralhealth.com.


Animal-Assisted Therapy is a valuable part of the work done at Kaleidoscope, especially equine-assisted interventions. Dr. Trotter has recently released two books that she edited, compiling chapters regarding animal-assisted therapy from leaders in the field, including Dr. Rebecca Bailey and Elizabeth Bailey, MA. The first, published in September of 2018 is EQUINE ASSISTED MENTAL INTERVENTIONS. The second, published in October of 21018 is EQUINE ASSISTED MENTAL HEALTH FOR HEALING TRAUMA. We highly recommend these books, both of which can be found on Amazon.
