Equine Therapy

Our equine therapy allows for partnering with our horses to create experiential and educational opportunities. This approach engages our clients in participating with their minds and bodies so they can learn by doing
These interactive and insightful sessions help clients with self-awareness, emotional awareness, stress relief, decision-making skills, and behavioral changes that apply to their lives both in and out of treatment. Equine psychotherapy sessions are complete with specific goals in mind, rather than general horse care or riding.
What is Equine Therapy?
We believe that people learn best through direct and purposeful contact. This therapy is fully integrated into our treatment plans, which means our Equine therapists are a part of the treatment team and align therapy with the key needs of our clients.

Family Programming

At Selah House, families become directly involved in the client’s eating disorder treatment. We hope to help develop some creative ways for you to grow together and learn to enjoy family life again. During family days, loved ones can participate with their child in equine therapy, a dietitian/family therapist-facilitated meal or snack, and a weekly therapy session.
Specifically, our family therapy sessions and individual client sessions help evaluate family needs, roles and processing throughout treatment, and as needed Phone or web conferences can be utilized when distance is a problem.
Successful Family Treatment
A family therapist is involved with each client individually and also in groups throughout treatment in order to increase cohesiveness and understanding between family members.

Clients at Selah House start in the bedroom on the main level of our teen house. They will share this large bedroom with up to four other clients. Clients in this room have staff nearby throughout the night. As clients progress in treatment, they will move from that bedroom to a double occupancy room and be paired by our team with a roommate. We do our best to consider ages, personalities, and other preferences when making roommate assignments. At the PHP level of care, clients who are boarding may reside in our “Cottage” overnight. The cottage bedroom has up to six clients in a room with bunk beds.
Teen clients meet with their individual therapist at least twice weekly. They also have family therapy at least once weekly and meet individually with their dietitian at least once.
