Who are we?
A group of professionals with a variety of backgrounds and experiences, including: law enforcement officers, youth mentors, horse trainers, teachers, and social workers, just to name a few. We have a shared mission to facilitate a trusted therapeutic partnership between our clients and a team comprised of a mental health professional, equine specialist and horses. Our hope is to restore our clients’ outlook for health, happiness, and self-love in a respectful and dignified manner facilitated by horse-partners.
Our Mission Statement:
Healing With Horses Inc. is an outpatient equine-based therapeutic treatment program staffed by licensed clinical social workers and therapists. Healing With Horses Inc. promotes pathways towards growth, learning, peaceful conflict resolution, and self esteem building for at-risk girls and young women.
We will strive to reunite families through the use of clinical therapy, animal therapy, discipline and hard work in both group and individual learning environments. In our adventure-based program, participants will learn how to work through conflict for the good of the family in a healthy manner and will learn to bond in loving positive ways.
We pledge to work honestly, respectfully and patiently towards individualized therapeutic healing with our clients and their horse partner. We will provide a useful treatment option through experiential sessions prompting metaphorical reflection by the client. We promise to abide by the EAGALA Code of Ethics.
We utilize the worldly recognized therapeutic model set forth by EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association).
