WHY IT WORKS

We take counseling out of the office and to the ranch.  The ranch is a safe and relaxing environment, which fosters a sense of freedom, connection and community.  Here children and families can learn, grow and succeed.  It's a place where you can find people who are willing to listen and offer encouraging support.  It's a place where you can be REAL, open and free to express who you are and where you are in your life.  

Our process is built on the belief that everyone has deep human core longings.  Unfortunately, we live in a world where our core longings are often unmet.  This can result in a wide array of wounds and hurts.  When people experience abuse, trauma, neglect or life and relational challenges, they can become derailed and stuck in a cycle of pain.  Our unique approach is designed to help peo;e build new pathways into healing hearts, minds and relationships.  At Stirrup Hope, we create a culture of dignity, love, respect, honor and empowerment.

We utilize a well-proven and unique form of (EFP) Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy as an incredibly powerful way to help people heal emotionally and relationally.  Our approach is strengths based, and solutions focused involving exceptional counseling and interaction with horses and other farm animals.
