Equine Assisted Psychotherapy

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is a new and emerging field. It involves a team approach between a licensed mental health professional and an equine specialist. It is psychotherapy that promotes growth and change in people through activities that incorporate horses.

The therapy involves setting up ground activities that invite the individual, couple, family or group to look at their current styles of relating, communication (including verbal and nonverbal), problem solving and emotional regulation. It also allows for increased awareness and assessment for the individual of their current beliefs and attitudes and the opportunity to work on trying different ones.

Potential benefits of EAP include building self confidence, self efficacy and empowerment, communication, trust, anxiety reduction and impulse modulation, addressing boundaries, assertiveness and practicing social skills. EAP is a problem solving model of change that utilizes metaphor to look at expanding perceived limitations, allows behavioral practice and cognitive restructuring.  $250 for a 2-3 hour session
