FREE monthly equine therapy group for MST survivors!

Last Friday of each month except Nov & Dec. (& heat permitting in summer-).  See horsecorps.com, or contact us directly to include your clients! Call or text 941. 677.8639 


Utilizing the healing power of nature, along with evidence-based traditional office therapy treatment modalities: individual (including play therapy &/or equine-assisted psychotherapy for children), couples, family, or group clinical psychotherapy sessions: All intake appointments are $200 for 50-55 mins with the doctor to establish your particular goals and plan for healing.  A la carte interventions are then determined by you & Dr. Williams.

For our self-pay clientele, therapy sessions are prorated at $165/hour for individual sessions, & $175/hour for couples/family/play therapy, $80/hour for specialty groups, and $325/hour (90 min minimum) for equine therapy sessions. You & the doctor will decide together regarding the amount of time that is most beneficial for your particular needs on a session-by-session basis. No set amount of sessions is required or predetermined; this is a collaborative process, as we know that realistically, needs change, goals are achieved differently by all, & cookie cutter externally-directed treatment is not the most appropriate or effective for human conditions of the mind.

We treat clients from ages 2-102, covering a wide range of mental health conditions, with the exception of eating disorders & substance abuse. Just reach out to us regarding your specific inquiry:  (text = most efficient): office textline= 941 677 8639
