EquiTeam Support Services is a nonprofit organization providing Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP)/Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) to residents of York County and surrounding areas that are seeking mental wellness as well as emotional and behavioral stability. EAP/EAL is a therapeutic approach using horses as a tool for growth and learning. Participants learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with the horses, and then processing (or discussing) feelings, behaviors, and patterns. EAP/EAL is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach that has an incredible impact on its participants.
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 model (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) and all members of the treatment team hold ongoing certification from this international organization. Please visit their website for further information: www.eagala.org.
