Minimize stress and improve physical well-being with guided nature therapy.
Forests are nature’s antidote to stress-related illnesses, and spending time in nature has been scientifically proven to have therapeutic effects. Nancy uses this knowledge and her love of nature to introduce clients to Forest-Guided Therapy, a form of therapy that involves spending time in nature and engaged in activities to enhance emotional and spiritual growth.
Nancy is a Certified Forest Therapy Guide and member of the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy Guides & Programs. She believes that many individuals, both adults and children, suffer from “nature deficit disorder,” and addressing this can facilitate growth and healing.
Forest-Guided Therapy uses the process of “getting back to nature” alleviates stress through physical activity, exposure to sunlight, and lowering cortisol levels—the body’s stress hormone. This form of therapy is particularly beneficial to those suffering from anxiety, depression, chronic stress, traumatic stress and even high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes.
