Equest is a progressive, culturally sensitive and aware counseling center, providing mental health services to the culturally varied and richly diverse communities of Northern New Mexico.

We are excited to offer Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) at our lovely facility. EAP is an experiential/interactive therapy integrating the horse with a licensed/credentialed mental health professional and a horse specialist for the purpose of working with the client for the purpose of facilitating the healing process.

EAP is an effective treatment and intervention to address a wide variety of mental health problems through varied activities and exercises the horse in the arena becomes a metaphor for the clientís behaviors and relationships. One of the most important benefits of EAP is that it breaks down defense barriers that are often created when a client enters a counseling session. Excellent for substance abuse, domestic violence and communication problems.
