Four Directions Behavioral Health: Offering Self-Discovery, Growth And Learning
At Four Directions Behavioral Health, we believe it is important for individuals to do everything they can to find the answers that lie within themselves. That’s where equine psychotherapy via the Eagala method comes in (Eagala= Equine Assisted Growth And Learning Association).
Four Components To The Eagala Model
On The Ground
Code of Ethics
Our licensed clinical therapists – and our horses – work closely with individuals to address every part of their being: physical, mental, emotional, and social. In addition to equine therapy, we also offer traditional in-office therapy or a combination of the two. We tailor the services we offer to the needs of our individual clients, as our ultimate goal is helping them unlock the answers within and overcome the challenges they face.

Equine Therapy Partner
Beyond equine and traditional in-office therapy, we offer growth and learning programs for school groups and corporate teams. The principles of Eagala were originally developed for the purposes of self-discovery and personal growth, but have been found to be equally effective for leadership and team-building training in group settings with people of all ages and backgrounds.
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy/Personal Development incorporates a mental health professional and an equine specialist. We accept most insurance providers for our mental health services. Our parent support and women’s empowerment group rate is 50 minutes and is $65.00/per session.
Our horses are a critical part of our offerings and we provide them with a safe, natural setting to grow and thrive. We have decided to open our doors to horses from the surrounding region, providing boarding services that include indoor space, outdoor space, and 24/7 care.
