Equine Assisted Counseling

Arise Equine Psychotherapy (EAP) takes counseling out of the office and into the ranch environment where the clients are part of a team approach. Engaging with the therapy horses, a licensed mental health professional and an equine specialist, clients identify, address and find resolution for their mental health needs. EAP is based on the neuroscience that humans learn best by doing. Horses are herd animals, which by design makes them sensitive and intuitive to their surroundings and interactions with humans. Hands on experiences with horses give participants real time responses that becomes an impactful learning tool for problem solving and growth. The lessons from the time immersed in EAP, bridge to daily life for authentic, lasting positive outcomes.
