Take Heart Counseling and Equine Assisted Therapy provides Licensed Professional Counseling services in the Reading, Lancaster, and Lebanon areas of Pennsylvania.


Take Heart specializes in trauma-focused Equine Assisted Therapy. We offer individual, family, group, and marriage counseling services, as well as corporate retreats and workshops.


Horses are used to assist with many challenges faced by individuals and families, including mood disorders, anxiety, depression, grief/life transition support, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse and addiction counseling, eating disorders, child and adolescent behavior issues, self-destructive behaviors, attention deficit disorder, relationship struggles, and anger management. Groups are designed to meet your needs and can include leadership training, teambuilding, or relaxing retreats.

Way more than petting horses, our sessions are designed to fit each client's individual treatment plan and based on evidence-based therapeutic techniques. We offer trauma-informed services from trauma therapists based on innovative new research and work in the field of equine assisted therapy.

Our horses are kept as naturally as possible to allow them freedom to respond honestly to clients in equine therapy sessions. This allows their true personalities, wisdom, and intuition to come through. We love our gentle and playful co-workers and work hard to ensure they love their job, too. 

Empowering individuals and families to find hope, healing, and wholeness through therapeutic work with horses.

We are so glad you are here!

"Take Heart!" is a battle cry for holding onto hope when things seem most impossible. Our compassion for people and our counseling services are grounded in the hope found in Jesus Christ. We believe that no person is too far gone, and we can walk alongside you while your hope is restored.
