Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is a solution-oriented model of therapy, that incorporates horses for mental health treatment, in which treatment goals, objectives and interventions are the focus. It is a ground based model, which means there is no riding or horsemanship involved. This model is covered by ALL insurances.
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is a collaborative effort between horses, a mental health professional and an equine specialist working with the clients at all time. We offer a non-judgmental space for clients to learn about themselves and others by interacting with the horses. It is not about horsemanship/riding rather a time for reflection, analysis and action. After the time interacting with the horses, clients can reflect on the experience with the treatment team.
All Individuals, ages 5 and up, and groups of any size are given an opportunity to experience the tranquility of the farm and horses. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy creates a time to learn and explore oneself, problem solving strategies and interpersonal dynamics.
This is a powerful model to take the lead in your life with an extra kick of horsepower!
