Nature-based Therapy Approaches

I believe the natural environment can contribute to the value of therapy through increased focus, normalization of sensory responses, and the fostering of self-reliance. In our fast-paced world of technological distractions, being outdoors offers the opportunity to slow down and be present in the moment.

In addition to being a certified occupational therapy assistant, I am a United States Marine Corps veteran – an experience which provided me with training in outdoors activities such as land navigation, survival in desert and cold-weather mountain environments, hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
