Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is an emerging field in which horses are used as a tool for emotional growth and learning. EAP is a collaborative effort between a licensed therapist and a horse professional. Because of its intensity and effectiveness it is considered a short term or brief approach. EAP is experiential in nature with a powerful therapeutic approach that has an incredible impact on individuals, youth, families and groups. Karin Yapalater is certified as a Integrative Health Counselor and Equine Specialist and is pleased to be able to offer an EAP program through Good Company, an Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Organization. EAP addresses a variety of mental health and human development needs such as behavioral issues, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, relationship problems and communication skills.
