Therapy with a Horse!
You're probably wondering what it might be like to see a therapist with horses. It is powerful. This experiential approach often gets to the difficulty more quickly than a typical office setting might. The horses give real time feedback on emotions and behaviors displayed by the people.
We specialize in using the Eagala model to deliver top notch services to our clients. The Eagala model has 4 tenets: 1) All work is done on the ground, there is no riding, 2) This is a team approach: there is an equine specialist and a mental health professional in every session to address both emotional and physical safety, 3) Client centered as we believe that people can find their own solutions in a caring, supportive setting, and 4) Solution focused as we wish to come to resolution. Many issues can contribute to challenges with mental health including situational stressors such as academic concerns, loss, relationship conflicts, employment struggles and life transitions. In addition to these stressors, some people struggle with issues from childhood or unhealthy patterns that sabotage their relationships. For many, there are also physical stressors such as chronic pain or a chemical imbalance. I recognize that everyone's situation is unique and make every effort to understand all aspects of one's life in order to reach an accurate diagnosis and deliver highly personalized treatment that maximizes your chances of success.
I am a dedicated professional committed to providing quality mental health services. It is my overall goal to enhance the quality of life for individuals and families. My belief is that all people are valuable and unique & should be treated with dignity and respect. While recognizing the potential for change, an assessment of the your emotional, physical, spiritual, and life experience is provided in a caring environment.
