The holiday season can be a stressful time, and the weight of those winter blues is a real problem for many people. Sometimes asking for help isn’t something we want to consider and the idea of laying on a couch and telling a stranger about something cliché like our relationship with our parents sounds like the last thing that would help. But what if your first consultation wasn’t at all what you would expect from a therapy session? What if that first consultation was with a horse?

Minnetrista is welcoming a new business to the neighborhood called Stable Living. This new business offers counseling that incorporates horses and nature in their sessions. The horses are involved in the counseling process in varying ways to be determined by the client and counselor together. Time with the horses is often used as a focus on relationship building, as well as a grounding tool which brings especially anxious patients into the present moment.
