Family Therapy

At ConnEQction, we provide psychotherapy for families of all types. Each family is unique and we work to identify how the family operates in order to help the family members change the way they interact with each other to form better relationships. We pull from different therapy models and techniques to provide developmentally appropriate, integrative, and customized treatment for each family. We value our client's input in their therapy goals to create a safe and collaborative relationship between the therapy team (mental health professional, equine professional, chosen equine partner) and the client. Each of our clients will get to choose the horse(s) they would like to be a part of their therapy team. Therapy sessions are conducted outside in nature with the horses or in the barn.
