Donelda Laing

Experience. Patience. Knowledge.

Donelda’s primary focus is on guiding the way for women and seniors as they heal from grief and trauma. Whether only beginning the journey, or looking for the next step along the way, Donelda works with and support individuals at their own pace. She offers a thoughtful, calm and knowledgeable approach.

Her passion for being with horses has opened the door for Donelda to bring healing and support to people through the equine assisted learning and personal development programs at Emerge Equine.
