At Medicine Horse, our therapists and interns offer Equine-facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP) to individual clients. Equine-facilitated psychotherapy (EFP) focuses on partnering with the horses to create connections and build relationships as the main objective of the process. The purpose of the sessions is to explore what it means to connect with horses and each other.
Most of us have experienced the healing power of nature and animals at some point in our lives. Working with horses allows us to challenge behavioral patterns that are no longer effective, learn how to be in relationship with others, correct false self-beliefs, heal deep wounds, and more.
Equine-facilitated Psychotherapy is an effective modality for those who:
have experienced trauma
are struggling with interpersonal relationships
need help with emotion regulation
struggle with self-connection and self-awareness
prefer to be outside
love and respect animals
need an alternative to “talk” therapy
are too young for traditional therapy
have tried other modalities, and feel stuck
Medicine Horse Program strives to offer affordable EFP for individuals. Our interns and licensed clinicians offer services ranging from $5-120+/session.
We do not accept insurance at this time.
