Mary Sue is a trauma therapist in Hunt Valley, Maryland who has a talk therapy/EMDR practice as well as a second practice solely for Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Therapy (TF-EAP). Mary shares how she fell in love with this way of working, how it is different from talk therapy, and how TF-EAP is attachment work.
