Individual & Family Therapy

The core of healing occurs within the context of the family. With a team of clinical experts, youth attend multiple weekly clinical sessions and families participate in weekly family therapy. We treat the whole person—and in turn, the whole family.

qEEG & Neurofeedback

Quantitative Electroencephalogram (qEEG) is a procedure used to measure electrical activity in the brain, allowing our clinicians to evaluate how different parts of the brain are functioning independently and together. Through this process, we are able to pinpoint which frequencies in the brain are out of balance and create personalized programming to help clients overcome challenges.

Adventure Therapy

By design, confronts and addresses learned helplessness, low self-worth, dependence and avoidance. Venues and specific activities—to include rock and ice climbing, backpacking, peak ascents, rafting, and mountain biking—are purposefully chosen to cultivate personal responsibility, self-worth, empowerment and connection in relationship.

Milieu & Group Therapy

An unprecedented experiential approach to daily group therapy allows youth to engage in a process that is supportive, utilizes the power of peer relationships and feedback, and promotes personal accountability. The EQ milieu is a special place—a therapeutic environment in which consistent routines are maintained and predictability and trust are fostered.

Expressive Arts

The art of self-awareness is developed through the non-judgmental practice of art and music therapy. Through safe, soothing practices, youth learn how to express difficult emotions, self-sooth, alleviate stress and anxiety, and improve mood.

Somatic Therapies

Using yoga, movement, meditation and relaxation, these therapeutic practices cultivate body awareness and bring focus to the mind and body; providing youth the necessary tools to change dysfunctional habituated responses to stress and challenge.

Nutrition & Exercise

Physical fitness and healthy nutrition are instrumental in the management of mental and emotional health. Each youth participates in these holistic practices daily, not just learning about their value, but also experiencing it every day.

Equinox has an academic lab that is conducive to learning and helps kids learn at their own pace or by partnering with local private educators for accelerated, specialized, or one-to-one scholastic opportunities. Keeping homework out of the home eliminates stress not only for the student, but for the whole family.
