Professional Services: an overview

The essence of our human journey: to heal what has been hurt in relationahip, to understand ourselves more, to learn and practice radical self-kindness and self-acceptance,  to discover how the inside of us is operating so that our self expression is authentic, without judgement for who we "should" be.

When we change, and grow, and more deeply love and accept ourselves through nurturing relationships, we have more love, compassion, and empathy to share with others. Sometimes it is through our relationship with horses and other nonhuman animals that we find the inspiration to begin our healing and personal disovery journey. Many of the sanctuary residents are also seeking the same healing and growth in new relationships with humans.

We invite individuals and referrals from all walks of life to come and learn about themselves by participating in non-riding relational activities with horses and other sanctuary residents. Sessions help indviduals by increasing self-awareness, emotional healing, personal empowerment and resiliency.

Fees & Methods of Payment

 

Our experience has taught us that nature based animal assisted therapeutic services offer an experiential path to healing and growth that is both powerful and productive. We believe strongly in equity of access to highly qualified mental health and personal growth care services. To that end, we work hard to maintain a scholarship fund to support those experiencing financial barriers to care, an honor system sliding scale, and insurance billing. Please consider supporting our scholarship fund to help disadvantaged youth, teens, adults, and families receive the support they deserve.

Session fees are due at the time of service. Animal/Equine Assisted sessions can range in time from 30 - 60 minutes depending on age and circumstances. Adult sessions are 60 minutes. Youth sessions may be shorter and are tailored to the specific needs of each child and range from 30-45 minutes.

First animal/equine assisted sessions can be 75-90 minutes for adults. Full session fee is $90. Youth sessions of 30-45 minutes are $60.00. Please let us know in advance of your first session if you need a financial need application or information about sliding scale fees, scholarship, or insurance billing.
