Ecotherapy, sometimes called nature therapy or green therapy, is founded on the idea that being outdoors, in natural environments, can have a positive influence on the body, mood, and behavior. Therapists that specialize in ecotherapy will view issues with the lens of a client's relationship with their environment – and may even hold some sessions outdoors or recommend locations, frequency, and durations of time to spend outdoors. Think this approach might be right for you? Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s ecotherapy experts today.

Ecotherapy aims to connect individuals therapeutically with nature. Walk + Talk sessions are available in order to bring about the mind/body connection in your therapy process, as well as, getting you grounded back with nature.

I have found connecting with nature to be a potent tool for my own wellness, and I incorporate it into sessions with my clients. Because of the positive impact of nature on mental health, I will teach your child to intentionally connect with nature in such a way that will improve their mental health and well-being. Intentional time spent in nature can ultimately become a coping skill to be utilized in between sessions.

— Kathy Temple, Counselor in Broomfield, CO

I believe in the healing power of nature. Restoring our connection to nature can aid in healing the pain and hurt we experience. What better please to experience the power of nature than in the serenity of Florida. Come join me as we unleash the potential of nature by the beach, the water, or a lush natural park.
