Special Spirit Inc. - Shadow Hills, California

Contact: Eva Lund or Valerie Stern


Located on the private Moonshadow Ranch, non-profit Special Spirit Inc. (SSI) provides a safe and serene environment just 20 minutes north of Los Angeles, where horses and humans meet, and people discover and develop their true potential. From self-actualization to deeper emotional challenges, SSI customizes Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) sessions for individuals, families, groups and corporations. Our licensed mental health provider/equine specialist/horse teams guide clients on their path to self-discovery and healthier coping strategies.

EAP successfully targets depression, anxiety, PTSD, chemical dependency, ADHD and co-occurrant issues such as low self-esteem, trust issues and fearfulness. Many clients report a faster rate of progress with EAP than they have with traditional psychotherapy. SSI also serves youth at risk, Deaf and Hard of Hearing and Foster Children.

Services available in English, Swedish, American Sign Language and French.
