Equine-Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP)

    Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy incorporates horses within Psychotherapy treatment to help address individualized goals, and improve overall function, health and wellness of the Client. It has the same goals and characteristics as traditional Psychotherapy but incorporates connection with an equine to facilitate progress and healing. 

    EFP may include a wide variety of equine activities such as observing, handling, grooming, leading, lunging, and some mounted work if clinically indicated. Clients do not need to have any previous experiences with horses to participate in EFP sessions. EFP sessions are run by a Licensed, Credentialed Mental Health Professional who is also credentialed as an equine professional. Alternatively, a Licensed, Credentialed Mental Health Professional works along with a Credentialed Equine Professional.
