Equine Assisted Psychotherapy
Family Therapy & Caregiver Support
At Firm Foundations, we provide services with the whole family in mind. We offer EAP for families as well as Parent-Child relationship building sessions. We also offer caregiver support (with or without a horse).
Horses have specific roles within their herds, and like human families, they each have unique traits and personalities, which creates a relationship dynamic that mimics human interactions.
Through careful observation of behavior patterns and communication styles, metaphors begin to emerge and become a powerful tool to aid in the healing process. This is what experiential therapy is all about!
Our Family-Focused Sessions are conducted with horses and trained professionals to help create change, build problem-solving skills, invite cooperation, set boundaries, and improve the overall level of communication and connection within the family.
At Firm Foundations, we promote positive, caring relationships between parents and their children. We can help you develop effective management strategies for dealing with a variety of childhood behavior challenges. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or overburdened, we can help!
