A New Leaf Therapy's Horseplay Program offers Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Groups

We are currently holding three equine assisted psychotherapy groups per week that integrate horses into your therapy. Groups consist of exercises that emphasize certain concepts, such as coping skills, communication, boundaries, etc. We have women's groups at 8 and 9 am and a teen group at 10 am on Saturday mornings. These groups are great for people struggling with things like depression, anxiety, self-care, trauma, and more! We are able to accept self-pay, Anthem BCBS, United, Tricare, Medicare, Aetna, Cigna, Humana, Kaiser, Medicaid, and Park Care for equine therapy groups. Self pay is $35 per group.
