Equine Assisted Psychotherapy

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy was often offered at Weekend Intensives and Retreats and time is split between group therapy indoors, and outside equine assisted psychotherapy with group processing in the arena.







Weekend Intensive Workshops and Retreats

Occasional Weekend Intensive Workshops and Retreats were offered for specific adult client populations, including codependents, adult children of dysfunctional families, incest/sexual abuse survivors, couples, and clients in recovery from forest photoaddictions or eating disorders. The format was typically intense small group therapy that allows for healing specific issues associated with various unresolved traumas, or with recovery and relationship issues. 

This weekend of intense group psychotherapy was combined with individual and group exercises to help clients increase stress management skills and deepen their own personal Spirituality and connectedness. This was done  through the use of guided imagery, quiet meditations and exercises that strengthen  their relationship with their Higher Power and with themselves. 

These exercises did not correspond to, nor conflict with, any religious sorts of belief systems, but rather served to strengthen and heal each individual's existing Spirituality so that they may better utilize the Spiritual tools they already had. The Weekend Intensive Workshops and Retreats were offered at reasonable costs and were typically held out of town at  facilities located near Nationacreek photol Forest land with abundant wildlife and hiking trails.

Due to the intensity of group psychotherapy, and the therapist's strong emphasis on safety in the therapeutic experience, all clients who participated in group therapy in office, as well as all clients that attended the weekend intensives, were required to complete a free telephone clinical screening to determine the appropriateness of the group experience to their individual needs.
