Walk With Me
Healing and Growth
One Step at a Time
Walk With Me is a non-profit equine facilitated psychotherapy organization focused on the psychological healing and growth of those suffering the effects of trauma, addiction, loss, and poverty.
“Horses can bring a deeper understanding to what drives us.”
Equine Facilitated psychotherapy
What is it?
If you want different, you have to try different. Equine facilitated psychotherapy is different for a lot of people. The work requires that you be willing to experience transformation on a whole other level.
Riding a horse and working with an equine specialist is like diving deep into the “why’s”. Why you feel a certain way, why you struggle with particular behaviors, and how to stop them from taking over your life. Horses know when we’re stuck in a pain cycle, engaged in avoidance strategies, or experiencing fear (among other emotions).
Working with a horse, equine specialist, and licensed therapist can help you put all the pieces together, create actionable steps toward recovery, and offer you a life changing hands-on-approach to your healing.
A pilot study at Fort Carson, CO showed that equine therapy and learning reduced the risk of violence by veterans by 24%. Even more remarkable, the rate of suicide was reduced by 62%.
The work may be hard, but the outcome will be worth it.
YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
In that they are not office-based interventions. EAP is engaging, interesting and does not require youth to be verbal about their thoughts and feelings.
“Trauma-focused psychotherapies are the most highly recommended type of treatment for PTSD. Equine
therapy treatments use different techniques to help you process your traumatic experiences and develop
behaviors to help cope with traumatic experience.”
