My passion is exploring connection. Promoting healthy relationships between self, each other and the natural world.
After 10 years in Social Work with children and families, I was drawn to working in nature to promote healing and connection. I love the deeper senses of belonging and community that one feels when we have strong relationships to ourselves, each other and the natural world.
I am trained in Forest School, Non-Violent Communication (NVC), Ecopsychology, Life Initiation and Rites of Passage, Grief Tending and The Eight Shields model of nature connection- a holistic and earth connected way of living and working for the benefit of all beings.
I have witnessed the healing, enlivening and joyful benefits of intentionally building a relationship to nature and believe in the profound impact that this work can have as we move into uncertain times.
I currently run Live Wild CIC and practice privately as an Eco- therapist and mentor with children and adults. I run singing in nature retreats, grief circles and other connection-based workshops. I also host Connection Matters Podcast exploring evolutionary lifestyles, mindset, culture, healing and spirituality as well as many other issues relating to personal growth, community and nature connection.
