Ecotherapy is an umbrella term for the use of nature-based approaches to facilitate wellness, growth, and healing. With its roots in the field of ecopsychology, ecotherapists work from a belief that people are an interconnected, interdependent part of nature, and that disconnection from nature leads to a wide variety of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual difficulties.
Clinical ecotherapy allows clinicians a framework in which to offer nature-based therapies to clients. Decades of research clearly demonstrates the benefits of nature on mental health and well-being. Integrating nature as a co-therapist into the therapeutic process allows clinicians unique and holistic opportunities for exploring insight, growth, and healing.

What Our Participants Are Saying:
I go hiking all the time, but wanted some depth to my outings. That is exactly what I got! I learned about plants and birds near where I live, while learning about myself and how I relate to them all. Kimberly is engaging, inspiring, and fun. I left feeling like a part the area we hiked instead of an outside visitor, and more connected to this beautiful place I call home! - Joyce R.
