A client who is unsure about traditional office therapy?
Or a client who is just looking for something different?
In our practice of Equine Assisted Counseling and Psychotherapy, we have found we often have great success in working with clients for whom traditional office-based therapy has not worked, who are feeling stuck, or who are not ready for office-based therapy. Our clients report that being out in nature and interacting with the equines is extremely calming and nonthreatening, enabling them to feel safe to explore their concerns in greater depth. We utilize the Relational Equine-Partnered Counseling and Equine-Partnered Play Therapy approaches developed by STEPS Co-Founder, Dr. Hallie Sheade.
Whether you are looking for a new primary form of therapy for your client or an adjunct therapy to augment the work you are already doing, we are happy to help. Based on your client's unique needs, together we can determine the best course of action. We look forward to the opportunity to partner with organizations, community agencies, and private practitioners.
This form of counseling can be helpful in addressing a number of mental health concerns including attention-deficit/hyperactivity, addictions, trauma and abuse, PTSD, depression/mood disorders, anxiety, stress management, relationship issues, parent-child issues, behavior management, grief, eating disorders, and social skills/communication issues.
