Equine Assisted Psychotherapy

 

Family Therapy & Caregiver Support 

At Firm Foundations, we provide services with the whole family in mind. We offer EAP for families as well as Parent-Child relationship building sessions. We also offer caregiver support (with or without a horse). 

Horses have specific roles within their herds, and like human families, they each have unique traits and personalities, which creates a relationship dynamic that mimics human interactions.

 

Through careful observation of behavior patterns and communication styles, metaphors begin to emerge and become a powerful tool to aid in the healing process. This is what experiential therapy is all about!  

Our Family-Focused Sessions are conducted with horses and trained professionals to help create change, build problem-solving skills, invite cooperation, set boundaries, and improve the overall level of communication and connection within the family.

Session Cost $200
