Research shows that the effects of traumatic childhood or adult experiences can be long lasting and cause social, emotional, and cognitive dysfunction. These changes can lead to unhealthy, high risk behaviors such as substance abuse, eating disorders, criminal offenses, self-harming behaviors, sexual promiscuity, and poor relationship choices. At Ranch Hands Rescue, through our innovative counseling program, we seek to intervene to change these outcomes.

EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITIZATION & REPROCESSING (EMDR)
At its core, EMDR enables emotionally distressed people to recover from the symptoms of their trauma much more quickly than previous psychotherapies available. One study showed that after three 90-minute sessions, 84 – 90% of single-trauma victims no longer manifested post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms.
EQUINE & ANIMAL ASSISTED COUNSELING (EAAC)
EAAC is a psychotherapy that helps emotionally hurting individuals build a relationship with a horse or other animal to bring about transformation and healing. We are the only non-profit EAAC program in the country that focuses only on mental health counseling; partners children with abused and neglected animals; and uses only Licensed Professional Counselors with advanced specialty training and certifications.
