Does life feel like your stuck in the muck?
Is someone you love acting angry, sad, overwhelmed, or anxious?
Sometimes the solution needs more than words...it needs to get to the heart of the matter. Equine facilitated methods are restorative, trauma-informed solutions that bring the heart and the head into balance for life-changing permanent shifts.
NW Hearts United provides ongoing services in Whatcom, Skagit, King and Snohomish Counties and special projects elsewhere. We offer ongoing individual and group services for youth, adults, families, veterans, service providers and much more!
We collaborate with a network of approved off-site locations/herds and mental health professionals in the Upper Puget Sound region to offer places where the horse-human connection is allowed to expand and grow.
Our team carries a variety of professional and personal experiences that strengthen our ability to assist youth, adults, families, and veterans in transition from crisis, challenge or conflict to connection and growth. Our whole-person, trauma informed methods provide lasting transformation.
NW Hearts United's unique EFMHL Programs helps create inner strength, peace and focus. People struggling to cope and thrive are often carrying deep pain, anxiety or anger they don’t understand and can’t explain. Difficult memories can be frightening to deal with. For traumatized kids and adults trusting other people is a huge risk. They’ve learned to protect themselves by shutting out people who try to reach them. That’s where horses come in. The experience of interacting with a horse—a sympathetic, gentle giant who doesn’t lie, doesn’t judge, sees through pretense, and communicates without words can be powerfully transformative for helping people get “unstuck.”
Ask us how to eliminate financial barriers to treatment. We offer scholarships and a sliding scale for those in need of financial assistance.
It takes Courage and
to get to the
heart of the matter.
NW Hearts United is a professional group of independent mental health and equine facilitated practitioners working collaboratively to heal individuals and families, and connect community one heart at a time.
NW Hearts United Foundation
Join the movement! Getting to the heart of it...
A movement has developed in the equine community to partner with horses as sentient, social- emotional beings. NW Hearts United is focused on furthering these movements in unique, creative ways. Heart-centric equine facilitated methods for healing, connection and empowerment are being proven to be highly effective but funding is slow to catch up.
NW Hearts United Foundation is a supported organization of Empowerment through Connection;a region-wide 501(c)3 charitable organization furthering regional equine assisted efforts for healing and connections.
Distributes funds to programs that exist for charitable purposes and provides funding for community projects.
Grants funds to regional groups that offer EFMHL and that furthers the movement for compassionate horse interactions and wellbeing.
Supports educational opportunities and projects that improve understanding of horses ability to heal, connect and empower.
Our Mission is to inspire relationships with horses and humans that heal, connect and empower. NW Hearts United offers mindfulness based programs that make a difference for the humans and horses involved. Join us today!
