Ecopsychology and Ecotherapy
Ecopsychology is the study and acknowledgement of our vital relationship with nature. The recognition of our intricate bond with all of nature, in fact our inseparable unity with nature, has been proven to be deeply elemental in relieving psychological and emotional distress. The practice of applying this knowledge is what has become known as Ecotherapy.
My training and certification in Ecopsychology lends itself to weaving this wisdom throughout my work, researching and rediscovering deep indigenous teachings as well as, when clinically appropriate, bringing clients into nature to experience first-hand the powerful healing that comes from revisiting and rekindling this inherent bond to the earth. We find our place among the “more-than-human” beings and our psyche is restored.
I have been developing a women’s daylong retreat workshop that combines these learnings with yoga and expressive arts. Those that have experienced these retreats have reported long- term restoration and renewal. I plan to expand these venturings into longer workshops so as to deepen the exploration and subsequent benefits.
