Take Heart Counseling and Equine Assisted Therapy, in Mohnton, is a facility that provides equine-assisted counseling services on a peaceful, wooded farm with playful and intuitive horses.  Equine-assisted therapy is experience-based and metaphorical in nature. The team specializes in trauma, anxiety, depression, family issues, self-worth and spirituality.

Counseling intern, Dana Haldeman, is accepting new clients. Currently earning her master’s degree in professional counseling from Lancaster Bible College, Haldeman is passionate about working with people who have disabilities and their parents/caregivers and siblings. 

“At Take Heart, we value the integration of evidence-based practice, faith and working with horses to provide a comfortable and effective healing environment,” explains founder and licensed professional counselor Meagan Good. “Working with the horses allows clients to process pain and practice growth and change in the moment, with a gentle and forgiving equine partner and the guidance of a mental health professional."

Location: 4675 New Holland Rd., Mohnton. Volunteer opportunities are available. For more information, call 717-917-7137 or visit
