I have a very small private practice working with children, adults, and families.
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.
I offer holistic psychotherapy, somatic ecotherapy, and equine facilitated psychotherapy. Mindfulness, movement, expressive arts are often integrated during sessions. Sessions are held indoors and outdoors in Santa Cruz County. As an Equine Specialist in Mental Health & Learning I also offer therapeutic, mindfulness and learning sessions with equine partners. Wholeness exists, sometimes we simply have forgotten how to connect with our true nature. I’m honored to support this journey of connection…
Forest therapy, Ecotherapy, Horticultural therapy.
Introductory and advanced clinical ecotherapy training retreats; mindfulness in nature walks and retreats; nature writing
As a spiritual companion, I seek to accompany others on their unique spiritual journeys through the art and practice of deep listening and compassionate presence. I offer both one-on-one and small group companioning within my home and virtually, with the option of meeting outdoors as well.
