Equine-Assisted Therapy

Partner with sentient, receptive beings to work towards personal goals such as confidence building, coping skills, depression and anxiety relief, and more.

Equine-assisted therapy consists of a partnership between a licensed mental health professional (MHP) and a certified equine specialist (ES). MHP’s bring their licensed expertise to create an emotionally safe and proactive mental health environment, while Equine Specialists provide a knowledge base on horse language that keeps all humans and horses involved physically safe.

THS partners with ECS Psychological Services, PC and other local clinicians to provide this modality.

  • Individual, family, couples, and veterans services available.
  • Priced at $35 per session plus insurance copays (if applicable).
