Complex Truama Therapy

Complex trauma is described by psychologist and trauma expert Dr. Christine Courtois, as “a type of trauma that occurs repeatedly and cumulatively, usually over a period of time and within specific relationships and contexts.” Examples include severe child abuse, domestic abuse, or multiple military deployments into dangerous locales.


Helps Improve Ones Outlook on Life.

Individuals dealing with addiction, depression or trauma can benefit from the amazing impact of Equine Assisted Therapy. Led by psychologist, Colette Collins, social workers use a combination of riding therapy and non-mounted activities to help clients deal with their challenges in a non-clinical setting.
