Equine Guided Psychotherapy
The horse and human bond is both ancient and sacred. Horses have always been an integral part of our existence on this planet. As naturally intuitive, sensitive, and social creatures, horses seek relationships based on trust and respect and thus encourage humans to practice the same. Equine Guided Psychotherapy is a dynamic form of experiential psychotherapy that involves a collaborative effort between the client, the horse, and the mental health professional. With the horse as a teacher and the therapist as a guide, this work is an opportunity to explore the self and embark on a journey of insight and growth.
Given its relational and somatic nature Equine Guided Psychotherapy can be helpful in developing effective interpersonal and leadership skills and improving emotional regulation, either as a primary treatment or as an adjunct to traditional psychotherapy. The relationship between therapist and client is one of the most important factors in all forms of therapy. I offer free initial phone consultations so we can determine together if I personally and if equine therapy will be the best fit for you at this time.
