Therapy in the Great OUtdoors
If you're feeling adventurous, I also offer outdoor therapy sessions throughout the East Bay Regional Parks in Oakland and Berkeley! With hiking trails, wildlife, and redwood trees, these "ecotherapy" sessions feel very different than traditional therapy in an office. This can be a great opportunity to get away from the busy-ness of urban life and focus on what really matters while deepening your connection with nature.
This 20-minute presentation introduces ecotherapy to therapists who practice Acceptance & Commitment Therapy. It covers Contextual Behavioral perspectives and provides tools and resources for integrating nature into your ACT therapy practice.
Curious what ecotherapy is all about? This story brings you inside an actual session from the point of view of the therapist.
