An Abundance of Support


When appropriate, other types of therapy can be beneficial to the outcome of treatment. Typically, canine assistants Harley and Gemma are in the office with me.  For Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, the rescue horses at Adoption 911 Sweetwater Ranch, stabled in Chatsworth are utilized. An Equine Specialist is always present for Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. Additional fees are charged for Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. But not an extra charge for the dogs!
