We all encounter challenging situations from time to time.  What’s the most effective way to cope with stress – at home, school or work?  Pediatrician Dr. Greg Yapalater and Board Certified Family Health Counselor Karin Yapalater, leading health practitioners and natural horseman with over 25 years of experience, have discovered that there is much to learn from self investigation and the study of human and animal behavior. 

Each individual or group session is based upon the SOCS PTA© curriculum, developed over the past 25 years by acclaimed Board Certified Integrative Health Counselor Karin Yapalater and Pediatrician Dr. Greg Yapalater – highly skilled family health practitioners and renowned human and horse whisperers.  

“I learned more in one hour working with Karin and the horses than in years of talk therapy. This work goes beyond words, and is different than traditional talk therapy….  a deep meaningful, long lasting healing where you will move on into a better future and develop skills to create a deeper sense of connection.”

What to expect in a SESSION:  Dr. Greg & Karin Yapalater work closely with each individual member of a family and the family as a whole to create emotional, physical and spiritual healing.  The farms and schools where The Yapalaters offer and build their proprietary SOCS/PTA© Equine and Animal coaching and whispering programs are a kind of a sanctuary with beautiful surroundings that contribute deeply to the experience.
