Tailwinds Therapy offers a dynamic approach to helping individuals, couples, and families overcome their struggles through providing services that include both traditional in-office therapy sessions as well as a more hands-on approach to therapy through providing Equine Assisted Psychotherapy services.
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) combines certified mental health treatment in partnership with horses to provide an alternative to traditional talk therapy. This service is different than therapeutic riding as it is provided using ground-based therapy interventions that are focused on reducing mental heath symptoms such as anxiety, depression, grief and loss, PTSD, and difficulty during life changes.
Tailwinds Therapy was started by Caitlin Lowry in 2019. Caitlin is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with years of experience treating trauma-related mental health issues throughout Fresno County and over 25 years of horse experience. Caitlin maintains an active certification through the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) to provide EAP services and is committed to continued education and learning to continue the development of this field.
All EAP sessions also include a qualified equine specialist in additional to the therapist as part of the treatment team. Services are available for individuals, couples, families, and groups (based on availability).
Current weekday openings are available as of Feb 17, 2020. Call 387-4367 or visit www.tailwindstherapy.com to learn more!
No previous horse experience is necessary to benefit from services.
