"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" - Mary Oliver

We all face challenges in life. There are broken hearts and lost dreams. There is grief and sadness. There is heartache and heartbreak. When it feels that we have lost our way, it helps to have someone to guide us on the healing journey. 


Whether you choose equine-facilitated healing, hypnotherapy, or prefer telehealth, Stable Balance provides a safe space and knowledgeable guidance to help clients find healing from the inside out.



Sharon Cabana, MA,LMFT

My name is Sharon Cabana. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Oregon. I graduated from Lewis and Clark College in 2015 with a certificate in Eating Disorders treatment and training in the animal-human bond and the treatment of trauma.  I continue to work as a specialist in trauma-specific treatment, eating disorders, spiritual and integrative care, and culturally integrative treatment.  I provide individual, couples, and family therapy in addition to workshops, retreats, and groups. I have completed intensive training in Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy and offer this modality in addition to equine-facilitated learning. I also have training as an End of Life Doula, Reiki Master-Teacher, and Clinical Supervisor for LMFT's. I recently completed a community ministry certificate with Cherry Hill Seminary and enjoy working with the Pagan/Witch/Wiccan communities. I am poly/kink friendly and an LGTBQIA-ally. At Anamchara, I integrate knowledge of both the neuroscience of the human-horse bond and the wisdom of spiritual horsemanship into my work as a teacher and therapist. I believe in giving my clients the foundations they need to succeed in all their endeavors while maintaining a healthy and stable balance from the inside out.
