If sitting on a couch in a counselor’s office isn’t for you, then Equine Assisted Counseling may be your answer.
No equine experience necessary. All work done from the ground without riding.
Learn about yourself, each other, your world.
Working with the horses allows you to explore your patterns of thought, communication and interpretation.
Working with horses is a powerful experience. They are like mirrors to your soul helping you find clarity and insight.
Whether you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, or other personal problems, the horses, along with Dr. Wendy Smith and equine specialist Marybeth Wiefels, will support you in your journey to well-being.
Time spent out on the ranch with the horses offers a unique experience. Working together with the horses, communication skills improve, while destructive patterns become recognizable and new ways of relating can be explored. LGBTQ couples are welcome.
Family and Group Counseling
It can take months to understand a family’s dynamics in an office setting. Yet one afternoon working with horses can shine a light on dysfunctional family practices. Bringing the family to the ranch to participate in experiences with these amazing horses may increase the willingness of other members to participate.
