What is the Nurtured Heart Approach®?


The Nurtured Heart Approach® is a relationship-focused methodology founded strategically in The 3 Stands™ for helping children (and adults) build their Inner Wealth® and use their intensity in successful ways. It has become a powerful way of awakening the inherent greatness in all children while facilitating parenting and classroom success.

The essence of the Approach is a set of core methodologies originally developed for working with the most difficult children.  It has a proven impact on every child, including those who are challenged behaviorally, socially and academically. 

Edye’s Personal NHA journey

Since becoming certified as an advanced trainer in the Nurtured Heart Approach®, I have been amazed at the transformation I have witnessed in so many of young people I have worked with. In the beginning of treatment many could not recognize any positive qualities in themselves. Many any of them and their parents feeling hopeless.


As I began bringing this NHA into my practice and teaching parents the model to use at home, things quickly began moving in a positive direction. I witnessed young people coming into session prepared to share their greatness and parents feeling hopeful for the first time in years. In my own life, this approach helped me to understand my intense teen in ways that I had never been able to before. As a therapist and a mom, I have seen evidence of the dramatic impact that NHA can have on people’s lives.

I know use NHA in my daily work with clients as well as offering individual parent coaching and group classes for caregivers and educators as well as anyone who works with children. NHA is a part of my daily life, not only with children, but with my colleagues, friends and family members.  If you are interested in learning more about this approach feel free to contact me on the contact page or by going to The Children’s Success Foundation.

To your greatness!
