Porter's House offers Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy for those engaged in our Outpatient Therapy Program!
EAP involves a collaboration between horses, a licensed therapist, and an equine specialist to support clients in making progress towards individual treatment goals. EAP allows for healing through connection as clients work to build trust and form healthy relationships with an equine(s). There is a focus on how the client naturally builds the relationship with their equine partner and the internal changes that must occur to create the desired, healthy connection. Through this work, clients simultaneously and experientially explore patterns in their current relationships across various settings.
Medicaid (Husky) or self-pay is accepted.
Please contact Christie Caneschi, LMFT, RPT or Sara Wrenn, LCSW to learn more about this incredible opportunity!
