More Than One Way To Improved Mental Health

Equine-assisted psychotherapy in Tyngsborough, Massachusetts with Robin Risso, LMFT

Health and Welfare

Before we even begin, the first core principle of my work is that the health and welfare of the humans, the horses, and the rest of the herd are at the core of everything that is offered by me and the rest of the team at Moonlight Ranch. I provide treatment in different models and modalities but honest, regulated interactions are the heart and soul of each experience.  


EAP -- Equine Assisted Psychotherapy may be delivered in a variety of ways including the use of a a herd observation model, EAGALA, and others. 


Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is similar to Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) but the focus is on learning or educational goals.

EAL involves a mental health professional and a horse professional working together with clients and horses. The focus however is on education and learning specific skills as defined by the individual or group, such as improved product sales for a company, leadership skills for a school group, or resiliency training for our military warriors.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy & Equine Assisted Learning can be an effective modality for individuals, couples, families, and groups.
