Equine Assisted DBT

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy has been an effective treatment for a variety of diagnoses and behavioral concerns such as borderline personality disorder, depression, anxiety, and self-injury. DBT is a skills based approach consisting of mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation. In addition, "in the moment" skills coaching is offered for situations that occur outside of group or individual sessions. 

Equine Assisted DBT is collaboration between traditional DBT and equine therapy. Horses give us immediate feedback into our actions and energy. This makes them great partners for therapy.
