Methodology

My Approach:

Equine Assisted Counseling works in conjuction with horses experientially for emotional learning & growth. Sessions are a duel effort between a therapist (MH) & a horse professional (ES) working with participants & horses. Equine Assisted Counseling is a "short-term" or "brief" non-riding or "non- horsemanship" therapy.
