Rocky Mountain Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, LCSW, LSW, MSW, AASW, Treatment Facility in Littleton

Why Horses

Why Horses? Horses provide clients with a frequency and consistency of responses that are immediate and authentic. They offer honest feedback, which helps our clients understand how they influence, create, and maintain relationships. Horses allow for a unique learning opportunity for clients to explore their boundaries, personal awareness, safety, and relationship patterns.

Who We Are

Carina Kellenberger and Dana Schultz are Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Certified Animal Assisted Social Workers, and have a lifetime of experience working with horses. Our unique therapeutic approach combines Cognitive Behavioral Techniques and Natural Lifemanship's model of Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (TF-EAP). Our method focuses on developing adaptive coping skills that are essential in creating and maintaining healthy relationships. We work with people who have experienced trauma, grief, loss, divorce, abuse, neglect, and other challenging life events that contribute to maladaptive behavioral patterns. As social workers, we are committed to continuing our education, training, and expertise to provide our clients with the best professional services available.
