When horses are part of your individual, couples, or family session, new ways of engaging in the therapeutic process come into view. The warmth, gentleness, and curiosity of the horse, along with a more relaxing environment can enhance your experience. Equine Interactions add motivation and ease to the process of improving relationships, increasing awareness and overall healing. Through our community partnership with Rebecca Jones at Passionately Living, we are proud to offer this experience as an enhancement to your therapeutic journey.

How does this process work?

It’s simple! Once you select the therapist you would like to work with from our directory, let them know at the start of your work together that you are interested in incorporating equine interactions to your treatment plan. They will support you in the process in contacting Rebecca and you can both set up a time to consult with her. You and your therapist can then discuss what the structure and goals would be for the session(s) you would complete with her while continuing your treatment with your primary therapist. Rebecca will continue to collaborate with your therapist as needed, providing useful feedback that may have come up during your equine interaction’s session. Rebecca offers these experiences in extended and intensive formats to individual’s, couples, and families.

You do not need prior experience around horses to incorporate equine interactions into your treatment plan. In fact, many clients have never interacted with a horse prior to their first visit. The safety and comfort of the horse and client is a priority. It is normal to have questions and we are here to answer them.

Rebecca is a valued colleague and former clinician of our practice, who was mentored by Dr. Holroyd. Her practice, Passionately Living, specializes in trauma and couples therapy. She offers alternative therapeutic experiences to clients who are already established with a therapist, looking to enhance their current treatment plan. Please let your therapist know if equine interactions are something you are interested in, and they will assist you in connecting with Rebecca to schedule a consult. If you already have a session scheduled with Rebecca and need to reach out to her directly, she can be reached at 757-514-1655 or Rebecca@passionately-living.com.
