BRIAN KANE, LSCW

EQUINE THERAPIST

Brian Kane is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) specializing in substance use disorder and co-occurring conditions treatment. 

 In 2005, Brian moved from his lifelong home in Massachusetts to Florida to start his journey of recovery from addiction.  During that time, he retired from practicing law and returned to school for his Master of Social Work.

 Brian learned of Horses Healing Hearts (HHH) in his new career as a primary therapist at Seaside Palm Beach treatment center.  He accompanied his patients weekly to HHH for their Equine Therapy sessions.  “I was constantly blown away by how one session with horses can bring so much peace, calm and insight to the clients who get to work with them.  I can’t overstate how impressed I was.”

 Shortly after Brian stepped down to part-time therapist, HHH offered him a position as an Equine Therapist in March 2021.  He also has his own therapy practice based in Boca Raton, FL. 

 Brian holds an MSW from Florida Atlantic University as well as a JD from Western New England University Law School and a BA in Legal Studies from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

 

Why I work with HHH

“In this field, it’s rare to witness a client have such a drastic turnaround in a short span of time – 60 or 90 minutes.  It’s very rewarding to be available for the clients and watch the life-changing experiences that happen with horses. There’s nothing else like it.”
