We are a Christian based facility that believes in helping the whole person. We want to help children be successful at school, home, and with peers. We want to help adults to live happy, well-balanced lives and be successful in all relationships and roles. We help our clients reach their goals by utilizing different solution-focused, client-centered modalities through the traditional office sessions or the more non-traditional Equine Assisted Therapy.
