We provide equine-assisted psychotherapy utilizing a team approach, consisting of a licensed therapist, an equine specialist and horse(s). This approach is based on the belief that clients have the ability to find the best solutions for themselves when given the opportunity to discover them. The horse is an ideal therapy partner due to its exceptional capacity to read and respond to non-verbal cues. Clients are able to observe their thoughts, feelings and behaviors and the impact on self and others. They can then explore, problem-solve and overcome challenges in the arena which translate into positive changes outside of the arena.
Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy can help clients work through difficulties such as depression, anxiety, behavioral issues, relationship challenges and trauma. The therapy work is all ground-based, with no riding involved and no previous experience with horses required.
We are EAGALA certified and have received specialized training in the Equilateral: Equine-Assisted EMDR Protocol and also incorporate evidence-based models such as CBT and DBT into the equine-assisted psychotherapy sessions.
