Mission Statement

Anam Cara's mission is to help people and the community heal from emotional wounds; cultivate resiliency; & promote mental wellness. We provide counseling, EMDR, Trauma- Focused Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy™, Equine-Assisted Services, & other healing modalities.


Anam Cara is a local nonprofit in La Porte which specializes in helping people and the community heal from emotional wounds. Anam Cara is the only organization in Northwest Indiana which provides both traditional mental health counseling and Trauma-Focused Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP), incorporating/inviting horses to be part of the therapy team. The focus is on building a connection with the horse from the ground (vs controlling a horse). This provides both an experiential and transformative healing process. By partnering with horses in the healing process, Anam Cara gives clients the opportunity to discover their own solutions to what brings them to therapy. This is done with a treatment team that includes a licensed mental health professional, an Equine Specialist, and a herd of horses.

Traditional Mental health counseling services are also provided at Anam Cara and include evidence-based treatment modalities such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Somatic experiencing, etc.
