My personal vision has been to combine my two passions of nature and therapy. I am not the only therapist who sees and understanding the value of reconnecting with the natural world. Incorporating nature with therapy is growing in popularity with recent research on its therapeutic powers. Studies have shown that exposure to nature has vast benefits such as improved attention, lower stress, better mood, reduced risk of psychiatric disorders and even upticks in empathy and cooperation. Even if it is not during a therapy session, I hope to help clients reengage with something they used to be or can be passionate about that connects them back with nature. It can simply be activities such as going hiking, to the beach, dusting off the old bike, simply going for a walk in a park, birding, wildlife photography, stargazing, kayaking, or anything else that gets you back in touch with nature.
