About Therapy on the Farm
Therapy On The Farm is a new opportunity provided at Amy's Farm. Allison Apgar is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, currently seeing clients in downtown Claremont. She is eager to expand and utilize the farm experience to promote healing and growth for her clients. Allison works from an Experiential, Gesalt based theoretical orientation. This involves therapy based in the present moment, bringing about an open, honest perspective towards the issues at hand. Therapy is tailored to all ages and individuals, as well as couples and families. Therapy can utilize all aspects of the farm, providing a healing environment for discussion and hands-on activities including planting, harvesting, and animal interaction. A "Therapeutic Plot" is also underway providing an opportunity for personal growth and cultivation.
"I invite you to come on this journey of discovery and self-revealment on our family farm. With the growth of Amy's Farm, we have been able to realize the healing nature of the farm and all the opportunities of a truly unique and effective therapeutic experience. I believe that if we combine the elements of willingness, environment, and therapy, we will see hope and healing take place"
