Nature-Assisted Therapy: EcoTherapy and Nature-Assisted Leadership

bridge-thumbNature-assisted therapy can help a person deepen their connection with nature while understanding and processing the emotional impact of a declining and damaged environment.

Using metaphors and associations from aspects of nature, the client gains access to a deeper wisdom or understanding of themselves and in the process feels a revitalized connection to place. Ecotherapy has shown to be effective in alleviating symptoms of depression, anxiety, and ADHD.

Therese M. Daniels, MA, LPC

Therese has specialized training in Nature Connected Leadership. She uses techniques learned in this course to help clients link with their innate relationship to nature. It can be beneficial to discuss and learn about these techniques while actually in the fresh air of the outdoors.

She will offer clients the option to have sessions while walking on the trails of Fort Washington State Park which borders The Resiliency Center. She will help clients learn and practice tactics that can eventually be transferred to their daily lives. Being out in nature can help people with Mindfulness, being more aware of their surroundings, and appreciating the beauty of being in the here and now.
