We are here for YOU. Wherever you are on your journey, we will walk alongside you and empower you to find hope and healing.

Way more than petting horses, our sessions are tailored to each client's individual treatment plan and use evidence-based therapeutic techniques. Our trauma-informed therapists use innovative new research in the field to provide the highest quality of care that will change inevitably change your life.

"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 will walk alongside you while your hope is restored.

Horses are intuitive partners and teachers. They are kept as naturally as possible. This allows their true personalities, wisdom, and intuition to come through and respond honestly to clients. 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.
