About Us

glider standHistory

TherapyWorks NW is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded with the purpose of providing therapies for children with disabilities who are denied service for financial reasons. Through our founder’s previous experience of owning a for profit pediatric therapy business from 1993 – 2006, we know that disabled children’s therapy needs frequently go unmet. TherapyWorks NW is dedicated to the provision of charitable therapy for the purpose of improving the quality of life of children disadvantaged with physical or behavioral disability.



TherapyWorks NW offers traditional physical, occupational and speech therapies for children and the specialization of hippotherapy. Our practice has an experienced therapist staff, therapy aids, and several volunteers. TherapyWorks NW is striving to gain in nonprofit service volume, and engages in grant writing, and fundraising activities.

TherapyWorks NW offers quality therapy and hippotherapy. We operate both fee for service and charitable service programs.
