Paraklesis Inc. is a 501c3 charitable foundation founded in 1990 to provide quality Christian counseling services for all in need, regardless of ability to pay. Individual, marriage, and family counseling services are offered by Paul Kaschel Jr., D.Phil. through Forest Lakes Counseling.

In 2007, the Board of Directors unanimously approved a new outreach of the organization to provide an experiential model of clinical counseling and education services using horses. Peace Ranch became a legal arm of Paraklesis in 2010.
