Animals 4 Healing

Animals 4 Healing is a Utah-based nonprofit organization affiliated with 4 Healing Center through our leadership and mission. It’s our goal to help children and adults who have experienced a trauma achieve balance through the mind, body, soul and heart connection and by utilizing evidenced-based and experiential therapies with the assistance of animals, nature, music, and movement.

What we do

We believe that healing can be and should be fun for all involved. Instead of doing just talk therapy and teaching coping skills, we work with animals, nature and each individual’s sole talent to help our clients learn, heal, and grow.

“Our goal is to bridge experiential therapies with evidence-based approaches and to help more people who are dealing with trauma, no matter their income.”

— Dr. Janelle Nimer, Executive Director
