Maintaining integrity, compassion and commitment to service in the treatment of individuals.
The person-centered approach at the core of the Equulibrium® facility programs has been developed to address different population needs.
Therapy goals are achieved through the use of equine movement, environmental elements, guided play and specialized equipment.
Founded in 2004 by Dr. Giselle Faubel, a clinical psychologist, this organization was one of the first in the state of Florida to offer equine assisted psychotherapy in an effort to help people find balance in their lives. Presently, Equulibrium® and its highly qualified and committed staff members, offers numerous equine assisted interventions within Psychology and other Therapy Services, with programs and activities that help people grow and develop in many areas of life.
Located 30 minutes from the heart of Miami in a beautiful rural area within Broward County, the facility is hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the city, incorporating the beautiful Florida landscape with 12 varieties of palm trees in an ecologically sound, chemical free, equine facility. The facility naturally lends itself to a total disconnect from the regular work environment, therefore creating the perfect space for meditation, relaxation, coaching, therapy, and growth.

At Equulibrium® we offer Equine Assisted Psychotherapy as part of our interventions. It is a form of psychotherapy that utilizes an experiential model and includes the horses in the session.More Info
The physical therapist uses the three dimensional movement of the horse to address the motor needs of each patient and to promote functional outcomes in skill areas related to gross motor ability such as sitting, standing and walking.More Info
The occupational therapist is able to combine the effects of the movement with other standard intervention strategies for working on fine motor control, sensory integration, feeding skills, attention skills, and functional daily living skills in a progressively challenging manner.More Info
