Holistic Psychotherapist LMFT, Somatic Ecotherapist, Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning
Bio
Adriel McCluer is a licensed psychotherapist who brings her lifelong love and deep spiritual connection with the natural world to her work. With a background in business, art and design, she made a professional change 10 years ago to the field of holistic psychotherapy after volunteering with a therapeutic horsemanship program. She currently has a private practice in Santa Cruz, CA, offering holistic psychotherapy to adults and teens. Adriel works with clients in coastal redwood forests, meadows, bluffs and shorelines, with equine partners in the Santa Cruz mountains, and in an office space indoors. Adriel graduated from The Earthbody Institute’s 100 hour Professional Ecotherapy Training in 2015.

Adriel integrates somatic, transpersonal, and trauma-informed practices from her Master's degree in Holistic Counseling Psychology at John F. Kennedy University, and as a certified yoga instructor (RYT200). Adriel is a certified Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning (ESMHL) through PATH International, and holds great value in the human-animal bond.

A student of Ariana Candell’s since 2011, Adriel also teaches at The Earthbody Institute, finding great meaning in helping others learn how to integrate their love of nature into their work. Adriel spends time outdoors everyday, in the garden, with her loved ones (human and other-than human), and exploring all the natural beauty this Earth has to offer.

Relational Mental Health Therapist, MA, LCSW
Bio
Amanda Singh Bans (she/her) is a queer-mixed ciswoman of color currently residing on the ceded lands of the Multnomah, Clackamas, Molalla, Kathlamet, Tumwater, Watala bands of the Chinook, and the Tualitin Kalapuya tribes known currently as Portland, Oregon. Amanda’s ancestors come from the Punjab state of northern India, the municipality of Zacatecas in Mexico, Germany, and England. She and her partner are raising their two black sons, a tremendous responsibility in an era fraught with racism and anti-blackness. Amanda is currently a practicing relational therapist and specializes in working with culturally dislocated people of color with trauma histories. Her background and training include working with survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual trauma, and narcissistic abuse, as well as adults who experienced abuse as children, racial trauma. She works with clients diagnosed Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD), ADHD, anxiety, and depression. Her practice incorporates elements of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB), Anti-Oppressive Practice, and attachment theory. Amanda is currently actively undergoing training to become a Level 1 certified Ecotherapist through the Earthbody Institute’s Ecotherapy Training for BIPOC professionals. In her consulting work, Amanda’s approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion centers the lives and voices of people of color and their intersectional identities in understanding the extent of how racial (and other forms of) trauma has impacted them to guide organizational change efforts. She invites conversation on what and how safety can be co-created, both on an interpersonal level and on a systemic level, and what is needed for individual and collective healing.

Bio
I specialize in a somatic trauma-informed approach using Somatic Experiencing, Yoga Therapy and Eco-therapy as hallmarks of my practice. While I specialize in working with stress and trauma, the modalities I use are beautiful heart-centered approaches that can help us all be more connected human beings.

In sessions, my hope is to support you in slowing down to more deeply feel, connect with yourself, and use our time together in ways that feel most meaningful to you. While we will of course be talking during sessions, we will also be listening for the stories your body and psyche are asking you to be with for deeper healing. It’s this wisdom that holds the capacity to transform trauma into healing, constriction into ease, and pain into empowerment. I approach this process of befriending yourself and becoming a more conscious participant to your life with deep reverence.

I invite awareness around how our ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender expressions, and socio-economic backgrounds might influence the space between us; I hope to be an ally on your journey.

I currently offer sessions online, which much to my initial surprise, is a format I love connecting through and works well for many people. I also offer sessions outside near Lambertville, NJ for those who resonate with nature as a pathway to healing and more conscious living.

Earth Medicine Woman / Art & Dance Ecotherapist
Bio
Earth Medicine Woman was birthed as a remembrance of my soul's true purpose in this lifetime, which is to be a guide for others to come home to their most authentic selves; remembering what it is to LOVE living and walking on the Earth. I guide others to align with their intrinsic natural state of calm and balance through nature-guided sessions, somatic dance, soul art, inner connection, meditation and ritual. I've found that the things which give us life are the parts that guide us home to our most true and authentic self.
