This talk is a way of introducing myself to our community and ways I can work with people as a Nature-based psychotherapist. I will present supporting science for the benefits of this ancient alliance. I will also touch on ideas for finding a good match with a therapist.
You can expect a discussion of ways to restore harmony in your self and your relationships naturally, plus added physical benefits, and a practical spiritual practice for all walks of life. Also I will include a useful mental "recipe" for daily struggles, or difficult conversations.
I gained my masters in Counseling Psychology from JFK in 2006. I am deeply grateful for my education and the experiences I have had working as a Rape Crisis Advocate, a Community Counselor, a School Counselor, and for three different counties as a Mental Health Practitioner. In addition I was able to provide mental health service in South Africa while living there for two plus years. Throughout these experiences, and from an early age I have also been exposed to "time in wild places" as a practice, in groups, families, couples and solo. This combination has led to a holistic therapy practice influenced by a long-view of human development symbiotic with Nature. For more info please visit naturebasedtherapy.org
