New UpReach Program: Equine Facilitated Mental Health!
We're very excited to introduce our newest UpReach program, Equine Facilitated Mental Health! EFMH is an experiential form of psychotherapy and learning for individuals revolving around horses both big and small. Leave the office setting behind and come to the barn to work with licensed clinical mental health counselor Sarah Jane Chaplin and our 15 fabulous ponies! Equine Facilitated Mental Health can help to maximize opportunities for you to understand and explore the way you interact with others, examine and improve your communication skills, strengthen your decision-making abilities, problem solving, and interpersonal skills. Benefits may also include an increase in focus and attentiveness as well as improvement in self-esteem and self-confidence! Please click here to learn more!
