Horse and Animal Programs
When someone has experienced trauma or adversity in their past relationships with others, it may be easier for them to develop a relationship with a horse; who relates to them in the present moment. Experiential activities with horses help troubled teens move beyond the limiting belief system that they may have about themselves and their place in the world. Equine therapy naturally supports the Strong Relationality model that we embraced at Greenbrier Academy. Horses tend to read the body language of those around them, often gravitating toward specific people to offer calm and healing for those who need it. Similarly, our dog and cat programs offer health benefits, both mental and physical, that can’t be achieved through traditional talk therapies.
The following are some of the conditions and disorders that benefit from our Equine and animal therapy programs:
At Greenbrier, every therapy session is overseen by a specialized therapist. Facilitating therapeutic exercises between your daughter and the program animals will provide our therapists with more therapeutic understanding to bolster her healing and therapeutic path. If your daughter struggles with any of the above mentioned disorders or conditions, Greenbrier can help. Greenbrier Academy offers an onsite tour of our beautiful campus, allowing you to witness the Greenbrier difference firsthand.

At Greenbrier Academy, we believe learning and gaining an education is about more than attending classes. After all, it’s not uncommon for academic and clinical issues to be connected.
One thing is certain. Students who are refusing to go to school won’t succeed in a program where they’re handed a packet and expected to work through it, essentially on their own.
Our specialization as a school allows for a higher caliber of academic quality in our staff, curriculum, and academic flexibility. This gives Greenbrier the opportunity to tailor lessons to fit each student to address their academic and therapeutic needs. Our two overarching priorities in our therapeutic high school at Greenbrier Academy are:
Each girl at Greenbrier receives individualized support from both a Learning Specialist and a specifically assigned Therapist. Our highly qualified teachers have certified teaching certificates, and many have gone on to earn more advanced degrees. Our therapeutic team is also heavily involved in supporting our student’s academic goals since mental health is closely linked to academic success.Through effective coordination of treatment teams, we remove the barriers that keep your daughter from being the best she can be.
