Announcing: An Exciting and NEW NWESC Program & Manager!
In line with our progressive expansion and development goals, NWESC is thrilled to announce the initiation of our NEW Equine Facilitated Mental Health and Learning Program (EFMHL). Once complete, the EFMHL Program will provide interactive opportunities of growth, learning, and therapy for groups and individuals in the Upper Puget Sound region. Its programs will combine equine-human interactions with counseling-based processing skills to introduce new awareness, improved emotional control, and transformation, while uniquely considering the equine health and well-being at the same time.
Amy Schilder comes to NWESC with 25 years in experiential educational programming. She also brings a combination of dynamic experience in nonprofit management and in equine-facilitated methods of therapy. She is certified by the Professional Association for Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) as an Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning (ESMHL), Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA), and by the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA).
Our new EFMHL program will complement NWESC’s efforts to promote wellness and stewardship through mutually respectful relationships and reverence – changing the lives of horses and people forever. Amy will be a tremendous asset to the creation and management of this program, and we are very excited make this program announcement and welcome her to our team!
