STRIDES is comprised of a team of Psychotherapists and Equine Specialists who provide activities with horses designed to promote personal growth, relationship-enhancement, team-building and leadership development.
All activities are on-the ground (no riding is involved), and activities are designed to meet your specific goals.
We offer sessions for individuals, couples, (traditional and non-traditional), families, groups, small businesses and large corporations.
STRIDES Psychotherapists use horses in their sessions to help humans overcome life's obstacles, successfully navigate relationship challenges, heal from post-traumatic stress, anxiety, substance use, and other life stressors.
We also work with businesses, corporations, and organizations to provide Team Building Workshops and Leadership Training leading to greater employee cohesion, retention, and increased productivity in the workplace.
We are available to provide workshops and services to helping professionals such as doctors, nurses, therapists/interns, school personnel, veterinarian staff, etc. to assist with the high emotional demands that can lead to Compassion Fatigue.
