Ecotherapy for Anxiety, Depression & Stress in PA

Emotional Healing Through Nature

Ecotherapy is the name given to a range of healing practices and activities that promote regular contact with nature to improve mental health.  Ecotherapy springs from the premise that people are intimately connected with, embedded in and inseparable from the rest of nature.  Scientific research now proves the ancient wisdom that time spent in nature can decrease symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD, stress and is essential for personal and planetary wellbeing.    

 

In today's fast paced society, we are often tethered to our phones, computers, and social media yet feel disconnected from ourselves and each other.  Stress, anxiety, depression and loneliness can be signs that meaningful connection is missing in our lives.  The natural world offers support, solace and a sense of belonging.   

 

 

As a trained Ecotherapist, former environmental educator and nature lover, I believe that a person's relationship to nature is worthy of exploring and cultivating.  

 

If you are interested in Ecotherapy, nature can be part of your healing process in a variety of ways.  For some, it may consist of meeting in a park for an outdoor session, and for others it could include a guided sensory experience.  Using Ecotherapy assessment tools, together we collaborate on a plan that incorporates nature activities into our session or directly into your life to help you achieve your lifestyle goals and increase your wellbeing.
