Triskele Rivers Team
Carrie Fuentes, M.A.
Group facilitator and
Equine-Assisted Learning Specialist
After graduating in 1995 from Lewis and Clark College with a MA Degree in Counseling Psychology, Carrie began her mental health career. Her journey has taken her into many environments, from working with high-risk youth, developing education programs that allowed students more freedom and time in nature, and running grief groups at Providence Hospice. After combining her interests in alternative education, mental health, and her love for animals, Carrie found her passion in Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL). In 2015 she finished her postgraduate work in EAL at Prescott College, where they are doing cutting-edge work in the field of EAL and EAMH (Equine-Assisted Mental Health). She found that interacting with the horses allowed new and creative ways for people to gain deeper awareness about themselves and others. Carrie and Ann combined their training and skills and created Triskele Rivers in 2015, which has now grown into Triskele Rivers Care Farm. It is a dream come true to create a place to help individuals slow down and explore awareness, connection, and intuition through time with animals, therapeutic sandtray, and movement.

Ann Hansen,M.S.,RYT 500
Yoga Therapist and Developmental Specialist
Ann began her career as a Developmental Specialist working with children and families over 30 years ago. She has a Masters Degree in Education( Early Childhood Special Education) and completed a two year certification program studying the effects of stress and trauma on brain development as well as course work around family relationships and adult development. She worked in a variety of settings as a teacher, child development specialist, parent coach, group facilitator and administrator. Ann grew up as a dancer, gymnast and musician and has always had a passion for movement and somatic learning. It seemed natural that her interest in mind/body integration and its relationship to communication and learning led her to pursue training in Yoga Therapy. She completed a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training and went on to complete a 500 Hour Yoga Therapy training. Ann is currently pursuing additional training to receive the new Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) designation from the International Association of Yoga Therapists. In addition, she has completed TIBS Level 1 and 2 Yoga training (Trauma Informed/Brain Sensitive Yoga). Ann's past work in human development heavily influences her current Yoga Therapy work. She integrates her knowledge of child/human development, neuroscience and yoga therapy in a more holistic, somatic practice. After spending time providing both mainstream and alternative services, Ann enjoys bringing a balanced perspective to her work on the farm. She enjoys sharing this understanding with others to support their own relationships and overall wellness goals.
