Dr. Natasha Filippides Psychologist, PhD

DEAP takes psychoanalytic perspectives beyond the couch, beyond the traditional setting, into nature, and into the experiential relationship with an instinctual being that has partnered with humans for most of our history. It pioneers a depth-oriented approach to a young and developing field of EAP contributing to the efficacy of EAP as psychotherapeutic modality. DEAP joins classical and contemporary psychoanalytic thought with an ancient human-animal bond that in the modern world has taken a new form: horses as teachers, healers, and as partners in therapeutic practice. Dr. Natasha has taken what has been set forth in the field of EAP and deepened the understanding of the psychotherapeutic elements of the human-horse interaction.
