• Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP)

    Our EAP program is run by a team consisting of a licensed professional counselor and a PATH-certified Equine Specialist. Matt and Suzanne have used EAP to treat children and adults with a wide range of issues from schizophrenia and trauma to anxiety and parent-child relationship struggles. Matt draws heavily upon Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), an evidence-based approach that teaches mindfulness and acceptance skills to let unwanted thoughts and feelings come and go while creating a rich and meaningful life. ACT dovetails nicely with EAP, as they both utilize metaphors, direct experience, and present-moment awareness to nurture human potential and growth.
