Ecotherapy

Many health care professionals have professed that ecotherapy (also known as green therapy, nature therapy and earth-centered therapy) can have healing and regenerative powers, improving mood, symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress. Ecotherapy is based on the idea that people are connected to and impacted by the natural environment. While some mental health clinicians practice ecotherapy exclusively, other practitioners incorporate aspects of ecotherapy into their existing practices.

Local Experts in Ecotherapy

Marissa Brun

Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Group Therapy, Individual Therapy

Nature heals the soul. My work in nature allows our environment to be a reflection of our experience and highlight the inner strength within you. I provide outdoor ecotherapy sessions which allow you to connect with your 5 senses and explore your situation through a new perspective. Nature has a lot to teach us about change and I often find that experiences in nature empower the confidence within.

Kathy Temple

Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Child Therapy, Family Therapy

Because of the positive impact of nature on mental health, I will teach your child to intentionally connect with nature in such a way that will improve their mental health and well-being. Intentional time spent in nature can ultimately become a coping skill that supplements what your child has learned in their Synergetic Play Therapy sessions.
