Professional researchers have been studying equine-assisted therapy in many modalities and for many different uses for over 20 years. DREAMS started as a 12-year-old child’s dream idea 45 years ago.
Solution Focused model relies on the clients choice of goals and the clients ability to reach those goals. Because the client is in control all members of the therapeutic team assist in the psychotherapeutic change using clients strengths and beliefs.
Equine-assisted therapy research has increased publication, adding to the evidence-based treatment strength. Equine-assisted therapy is used for many different purposes and at DREAMS it is used for psychotherapy benefits. The model DREAMS uses has been in existence for 20 years and evolves as newer evidence presents.
DREAMS has agreements with many different stables which provide safe and confidential areas to be outside or in some cases an indoor arena. The stables are all situated in beautiful urban areas with an emersion of natural light, plant, and animal habitats while able to move feely in very large areas.
The goal is to make access easier if you live in northwestern parts of Washington State. DREAMS also tries to make help financially accessible. If finance is an issue please contact us. Our goal is to help.
