Title and License:
Somatic Ecotherapist, LMFT, LPC-MHSP
Bio:
No matter where you are in your journey, I am here to support you with embodying wellness in all areas of your life. Together we can explore what it means to be who you are, reconnect with your body, commune with nature, learn new patterns of thinking, find your voice, and heal. My warm and grounded presence provides a safe space for you to explore how beautiful and amazing, but often times wounded relationship to our physical selves can impact our relationships, creativity, general wellbeing, and even our ability to reason and learn.
I integrate innovations such as non-violence, mindfulness, and bodymind holism with my training in expressive arts, authentic movement, ecotherapy, and Hakomi Experiential Psychotherapy to work creatively and collaboratively with adults, adolescents, couples, romantic partners and families.
We'll explore how you perceive and experience the world using a variety of approaches (role-playing, nature, imagery, dance) to bring awareness and give you increased choice as you navigate new experiences. Contact me today to discuss what you would like to explore, experience or achieve in therapy.

To Paula, reconnecting with, learning from, and nurturing relations with nature are paramount to healing and wellness.

Bio:
I am a Nature & adventure guide, organising trips to the Wild in different parts of the World (Nepal, Mongolia, India, …). I spend over 100 days in Nature in a year. I study Veda and Ayurveda and I teach yoga. I lived with a few primal people (Gurungs, Khasi, Mishmis, Xalx, Hazabe,…) and I learnt about primitive techniques and medicinal plants. The Gurungs gave me the nickname “Ban Manche” which means “Forest-Man” (or “human friend of the Forest Spirit””). My anthropology thesis was about holy springs in a shamanic/Buddhist tradition.
I received Level One Ecotherapy Certificate from the EarthBody Institute in 2020.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist, trauma-informed brainspotter, ecotherapist, yoga therapist, yoga teacher specializing in Therapeutic Yoga, and concerned Earth citizen. I work with clients and students of all ages who would like to prevent physical, emotional, and spiritual symptomatology, as well as those that are currently suffering from: physical injuries and ailments; anxiety; depression; grief; women’s issues; relationship issues; eco-grief and climate change anxiety. We are in a time of great upheaval and incredible opportunity. I look to the creation that is around us: the trees, the sea, the earth, the air, the rocks, to provide solace for myself and maintain stability and connection in an overwhelming and fast-paced world. I wish to assist my clients and my students to re-connect (in office, via telehealth, or outside) with the ancient connection of people to Earth. Joanna Macy suggests we are in the time of The Great Unraveling and The Great Turning. I look to the beauty around us and within us to guide my ecotherapy clients into discovering how they will manage the Unraveling and contribute fully to the Great Turning.

Bio:
For over a decade, I've been helping people recover from trauma and abuse to reclaim their lives. I am experienced with helping to resolve traumatic events, PTSD, developmental trauma, domestic and sexual abuse. Having survived traumatic events myself, I know some of the long-term impacts and challenges to well-being. Nature restores and reconnects us to ourselves, to others and our sacred planet. As a counsellor I enjoy working with others outdoors. I facilitate sensory awareness with inner awareness to promote safety, groundedness and self-acceptance. My book, "Sacred Trees, Sacred People of the Pacific Northwest," available on Amazon.com, tells the story of my own journey to reconnect with Nature in discovery of real trees regarded as sacred by communities within western USA and Canada.
