Birchwood Counseling is now offering consultation for facilities and organizations who want to implement animal assisted therapy into their programming. Please call Natalie Runge, MA, LPCC, C-AAIS for more information 612-810-6613.
Birchwood Counseling recognizes a need for therapeutic approaches that “think outside the box”. Birchwood Counseling provides non-traditional counseling through animal-assisted interventions and nature-based techniques as well as traditional in office-based counseling services as well as telehealth. We approach counseling from a holistic view. We respect the unique needs of each individual seeking counseling while upholding the welfare of the animals we partner alongside.
Birchwood Counseling provides individual, couples, and family therapy to adolescents and adults. Birchwood Counseling utilizes techniques from EMDR, animal-assisted therapy, trauma-informed models, Gestalt approaches, cognitive-behavioral therapy, person-centered therapy, strengths based perspective, mindfulness techniques, family systems, and attachment based interventions.
Birchwood Counseling provides individual equine assisted psychotherapy and will be offering group therapy in the near future. We will also be offering k9 assisted agility skills building groups in the spring of 2023! Please ask your clinician for more details!
