About My Clients

Are you someone who loves nature and is feeling stuck somehow? Are you experiencing a challenging life transition, such as a serious loss, a career change, or just not knowing what's next? Are you feeling more anxious, stressed out, depressed or sad than you would like to be? Do you long to have more meaning and purpose in life, greater self-esteem and confidence, or more emotional calm? I can help guide you to greater clarity, peace, and happiness using a holistic and nature-based approach.

My Background and Approach

Nature is a healing partner in our work together. I do almost all my therapeutic work with clients outdoors where nature supports the process and you feel more relaxed and open just being there. I listen deeply and mirror back to you what is true and strong. I have a variety of tools and modalities that can help you move forward to the life you want to live. The work often involves teaching you methods you can use by yourself when things get difficult, so that you are better able to navigate life's challenges. Mindfulness, nature, and body awareness are core to my work with you. I believe that healing and growth must be holistic, addressing and integrating the mind, body, soul, Spirit, and nature. My background includes training and experience in all these arenas. My love of nature led me to my first career as a field biologist. A mid-life transition led me to become a licensed mental health counselor and eco-therapist.

  • Agnosticism
  • Buddhism

  • Taoism
  • Wicca/Paganism
  • Interfaith
