Telehealth
We are providing Teletherapy services through a HIPAA compliant platform called Doxy.me which offers clients video and audio contact with their therapist over the internet.
Health insurance companies have been able to relax guidelines in an effort to make telehealth services available to more people during the pandemic. We are using this techonology as a way to continue to provide therapy services while limiting the use of shared office space.
Welcome our new Board Members
Elizabeth Bernard and Lawrence McGarth are joining our 2020 Board of Directors.

Upcoming Events
April 29th from 12:00 - 1:00 PM
Addressing Equality in All Parts of the Eagala Model Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Team.

How to listen to yourself and the horses to create powerful facilitation teams. A presentation inspired by our spirited therapy horse Taco.
June 6th from 12:00 - 2:00 pm

Horses have a lot to teach us about our personal power. In this session, the horses (with some help from the human facilitators) will show us how they use authenticity and mindfulness to demonstrate power without relying on dominating others. Participants will explore the difference between passivity, assertiveness and aggression, and will practice making space for their full selves while sharing space with others. No previous equine experience is required. Please communicate any need for accommodation prior to the session.
June 13th from 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Explore connections in nature, with yourself and with others in this two hour workshop.
Dress in comfortable clothing and be prepared to be outdoors. Will have a horse-based activity with this program.
