Services Summary :

Allow Nature to be a co-therapist in your healing and growth journey. By taking our session outdoors, we allow the healing properties of nature to assist in meeting your needs. The elements, plant and animal life enhance the process by offering symbolic meaning and intuitive messages to guide and heal. Meet me at the beach, park or the forest. Let the natural world welcome you and bring you what you need to see, feel or hear. Research is showing the positive benefits of nature in treating depression and anxiety.
Ecotherapy outdoor workshops allow you to meet with other nature lovers to experience the gifts of nature and gain insights and direction. Outdoor group activities are designed to give you an experience that only Nature can create. Practice mindfulness, learn about Native American symbols and see how to deeply connect with nature and yourself . I am inspired to create retreats in nature that inspire people to ‘break away’ from their daily lives and create ‘breakthroughs’ in consciousness as they connect more with their spiritual nature. These four day retreats are usually held in Florida, Tennessee, Colorado or California. I am inspired to lead retreats in sacred places all over the world.
