Title and License
Holistic Psychotherapist LMFT, Somatic Ecotherapist, Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning
Adriel McCluer is a licensed psychotherapist who brings her lifelong love and deep spiritual connection with the natural world to her work. With a background in business, art and design, she made a professional change 10 years ago to the field of holistic psychotherapy after volunteering with a therapeutic horsemanship program. She currently has a private practice in Santa Cruz, CA, offering holistic psychotherapy to adults and teens. Adriel works with clients in coastal redwood forests, meadows, bluffs and shorelines, with equine partners in the Santa Cruz mountains, and in an office space indoors. Adriel graduated from The Earthbody Institute’s 100 hour Professional Ecotherapy Training in 2015.

Adriel integrates somatic, transpersonal, and trauma-informed practices from her Master’s degree in Holistic Counseling Psychology at John F. Kennedy University, and as a certified yoga instructor (RYT200). Adriel is a certified Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning (ESMHL) through PATH International, and holds great value in the human-animal bond.

A student of Ariana Candell’s since 2011, Adriel also teaches at The Earthbody Institute, finding great meaning in helping others learn how to integrate their love of nature into their work. Adriel spends time outdoors everyday, in the garden, with her loved ones (human and other-than human), and exploring all the natural beauty this Earth has to offer.
Services Summary

I offer holistic psychotherapy, somatic ecotherapy, and equine facilitated psychotherapy. Mindfulness, movement, expressive arts are often integrated during sessions. Sessions are held indoors and outdoors in Santa Cruz County. As an Equine Specialist in Mental Health & Learning I also offer therapeutic, mindfulness and learning sessions with equine partners. Wholeness exists, sometimes we simply have forgotten how to connect with our true nature. I’m honored to support this journey of connection…
