"I worked with Dr. Gaedt during the darkest days of my life. I didn't care if I died. Early on I was an unwilling client but she knew when to press and when not to. She succeeded where other therapists failed and I attribute my success to her." Diana G.
Miracle Ranch is the brainchild of Dr. Heather Gaedt and her Sober Coach husband Aaron Smith. Therapy is conducted in the San Jacinto Mountain area, a short drive up Highway 74. Horse therapy is an accelerated form of healing where some experience the equivalence up to one year of talk therapy in a few sessions.
