Ecotherapy is an umbrella term that describes the process of healing that occurs naturally while spending time in nature.  Though it is primarily a "nature as therapist" approach, I hope to co-facilitate and guide this process in order to help you align with the healing powers inherent in the natural world and in you. The research has been mounting. Spending time in nature has some serious health benefits, including: decreased stress/anxiety levels, improved mood and feelings of health and robustness, a strengthened immune system, as well as improved mental performance and creativity.

*RATES of ecotherapy sessions vary from in office rates, based on duration and location.  Please inquire if you are intersted.  510-289-0203.  natureastherapist@gmail.com

This ongoing group is a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in taking their process outdoors—into the beautiful oak, bay, and redwood forests of the Oakland hills. This group is for those who would like a respite from the bustle and hustle of the city, in need of time and space to slow down and reconnect with your self, strengthen your mindfulness practice, and process the challenges in your life with the guidance of nature and a licensed ecotherapist.

This group will meet every Thursday morning (10am - 12pm : $20 per person) and every Sunday morning (10am - 1pm : $30 per person) on an ongoing weekly basis.
