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. We are partnering with Dirty Dames Animal Rescue! Groups are facilitated by Kim Blackwelder, LCSW.
Kim is also now offering individual therapy using horses using the Somatic Equine Therapy approach. Somatic equine therapy is a body-oriented therapeutic approach for healing trauma and other stress disorders through unblocking and releasing trauma and shock from your body and healing emotional wounds.
