Traditional Office-Based Therapy and Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy

Visit our News and Events page to see what our community says about Eagle Vista.

Children, adults, families and groups receive psychotherapy for a wide range of challenges including anxiety, depression, grief, self-esteem, PTSD, addiction, co-dependency, anger, parenting, ADHD, autism and more.

We provide traditional psychotherapy and equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP) in a safe, nurturing environment, using a variety of cognitive-behavioral (CBT) tools. We help individuals recognize patterns of behavior, thoughts, triggers, and develop skills to increase self-awareness and make positive changes that create life transformation.

During psychotherapy, you learn about your moods, feelings, thoughts and behaviors. This learning helps you take control of your life and respond to challenges with healthy coping skills.

EVR collaborates with Evergreen Youth & Family Services to help grieving youth.

Groups & Team Building

Leave the conference room and venture out to Eagle Vista Ranch & Wellness Center for your next staff development event!

Based on an initial conversation of your goals or issues, we'll design a series of activities for your staff to perform around or with the horses. After each exercise a series of discussions will get your staff talking about feelings, experiences and ideas.
