Therapy and Wellness Center
"And let us continue to consider how to motivate one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another even more as you see the day of the Lord coming nearer."
Our program takes a spiritual and holistic approach to healing. Though Horses and Equine Assisted Therapy are the foundation of our program, we also incorporate, Pastoral counseling, Reiki healing, and Life Coaches to treat those in our care. By using multiple multiple therapeutic touch points we can help participants achieve relief from anxiety, depression, PTSD and other stress disorders resulting from trauma. Each therapy session teaches skills that people can use to get through everyday life situations during and after the program. The goal of our program is to Restore individual wellness, inner peace and self-love and to heal the invisible wounds caused by trauma.
Our therapy services are free for all admitted to our program and even once complete, we are here for a lifetime of support. Answering the Call to Serve Others with Love and Understanding, Providing Support and Restoring Hope is more than what we do, it is a reflection of who we are. We have a deep rooted love for the hurt and broken. With the Grace we have been given, we will face the growing problem of trauma induced stress disorders and with the help of our Equine partners we can find healing together.
