Introducing Equine-Assisted Counseling

Yesterday we detailed the differences between equine-assisted psychotherapy and equine-assisted learning. See this link for that post.


After some consideration, Healthy Strides has added a new tier of services called EAC (equine-assisted counseling).


What is EAC?

EAC is therapeutic in nature but is different from EAP in a few ways. EAC is meant for short term counseling to get you through tough times in life. While EAP is meant to treat mental health conditions, EAC helps you cope with difficult life stressors such as grief, loss, and change that causes excess stress. EAC can be billed to insurance companies with a few exceptions which can be discussed during your no-cost phone consultation. EAC covers the following life stressors. This list is by no means all-inclusive.

  • Grief and loss
  • Pre-marital counseling
  • Life crises
  • Problem resolution
  • Chronic pain/chronic illness
  • Phase of life changes
  • Work and school stress
  • Family caregiver support
  • Pre and post military deployment
  • And more!

Sometimes you need to work through an issue without a specific mental health condition. If that is the case, let Healthy Strides help you work through this tough phase. Call us at 217-383-0065
