Equine Assisted Psychotherapy
Hope Grows is pleased to offer Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP). Clinical mental health counselors use equine partners to assist in non-traditional experiential therapy sessions.
Our EAP program is designed for clients ages 8 and up who either have a previous mental health diagnosis or upon assessment may fit a diagnosis within the mental health category. All clients have an initial assessment from which a treatment plan is developed. From there sessions are geared toward treatment plan goals while incorporating horses. It isn't horseback riding although all interested clients usually at some point have the opportunity to ride a horse, we do not encourage clients to see that as a goal of their therapy.
Medicaid and BCBSVT accepted.
