At Take Heart we believe counseling is an investment in your mental and emotional well-being, and we invest a lot of time, energy, and preparation to provide clients with the best care possible. We also set limits on how many clients we see each week to protect our horses and staff from burnout. There is no insurance billing service provided at this time, but receipts are available upon request. These receipts or “superbills” can be submitted to your insurance for reimbursement for out-of-network therapy. Your counselor is willing to work with you to access additional payment sources. Additionally, please talk to your counselor if you are not able to afford or get help to pay for these sessions, as other options may be available for you. We occasionally have scholarship opportunities with our Partnership Program for clients with financial needs.

The following policies are to be observed:

  • Payment due at time of service (every session unless other arrangements are agreed upon in advance), regardless of whether or not the client intends to submit a claim to their insurance for reimbursement.
  • Full payment is expected for an appointment not cancelled within twenty-four hours of your scheduled time slot (exceptions are made for emergencies), unless you are able to reschedule in the same week.
  • Following two consecutive cancellations, inconsistent attendance and/or non-payment of fees, your status as a client will be evaluated.
  • Any fees incurred due to bad checks will be the responsibility of the client. The fee is $25 per check, subject to change depending on bank fee.

Hope. Healing. Horses.

We encourage our clients to pursue all possible avenues for financial assistance when needed. If you are part of a church or other religious community, they may be able to help. Reach out to them and let them be a support for you. Even extended family members of clients have been a support in the past.

Pennsylvania's Victims Compensation Assistance Program ​(VCAP) is a state funded program that can offer funding to sexual assault survivors in the state of Pennsylvania.
