By teaching how to use nature connection practices from a developmental perspective, I help parents, teachers, occupational therapists, and nature connection mentors resolve behavioral issues, improve therapy and academic outcomes, and create healthy environments for children to grow, learn, and thrive.
Nature connection is a journey.
Understanding children is too.
Both take skill.
Skills are built.
I have spent thirty years building skills and gathering the best research while developing practical ways to teach others.
It could have been easier for me to build my skills. I'd like to make it easier for you.
This community is your guide to building a successful skillset in a supportive place to practice— setting you on a journey with greater ease and peace of mind.
Although we can't replace the "village fire" we sure can try!
Don't be a lone wolf, because that is just lonely!
Join the nature-led community today!
You have called this community into being, breathed life into this dream. Over the last 25 years but especially the last several months I have heard you. Since birth, I have heard the earth, the waters, the water beings, the mosses and mycelium, the reptiles, insects and amphibians, the four-leggeds, the low lying plants, the trees, the birds, the winds, the directions, the sun, the moon, the stars, the storms, the wisdom keepers.
I am deeply grateful for this messy and beautiful life, for all those who passed on their wisdom, and for you and I now sharing in community together. Thank you.
