Flying High Farm is a mental health practice dedicated to children, adolescents and young adults. Through the therapeutic power of animals, the clinicians at Flying High Farm work closely with individuals to build rapport, increase motivation for change, develop and practice positive behaviors and skills, promote effective communication, etc.

Why Animals?

Our Treatment Focus

Our Treatment Focus

image59
The use of animals is founded not only on the premise that it is easier for a child to project his/her feelings on an animal but also on the animal's faculty for supplying some of the child's need for cuddling, companionship and unconditional acceptance."
(Adapted from Boris Levinson's Pet-Oriented Child Psychotherapy, 1997).
