EquiTeam Support Services® is a non-profit, outpatient therapy organization, providing therapeutic services to residents of York County and surrounding areas that are seeking mental health wellness as well as emotional and behavioral stability.
EquiTeam use horses (NOT RIDDEN) as part of our professional team, hence providing Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL).
Clients will learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with the horses, and then processing (or discussing) with our mental health professional, feelings, behaviors and patterns. EAP/EAL is a powerful and effective approach that has an incredible impact on its participants.
The horses are an integral part of our therapeutic team. The horse is amazingly perceptive and will give you an immediate reaction to any situation. Your reaction to the horse, and its reaction to you will "show" you how to better communicate and interact with others to accomplish your personal goals.
Our mission is to provide a professional team to assist in improving the personal health and well-being of individuals, families and groups through interaction with the horse as teacher and guide: facilitating self- motivation, communication and expression.
EquiTeam Support Services utilizes the EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) model. EquiTeam is one of only eleven organizations in more than 700 EAGALA programs worldwide to be awarded the Distinguished Program Member recognition by EAGALA.
EquiTeam is an EAGALA Military Services Provider.
