About

Group Therapy

Erinn and co-therapist Jeannette offer Equine Assisted opportunities to address a number of issues for groups. Currently, Heal the Healers involves an afternoon of equine assisted activities targeted at health and helping professionals who typically give so much of themselves to help others, often at their own expense. This afternoon is tailored with their needs in mind!

Erinn and Jeannette can completely customize a program for your team as they frequently host corporate functions as well aimed at team building, communication, and emotional intelligence. This experiential experience is far different from typical corporate learning opportunities and provides better chances of incorporation of positive elements back into the office!

If you are an individual inquiring on a specific group opportunity (couples work, grief/bereavement work, etc) please inquire as additional groups are in development and we may have one that fits your needs!
