Our Story

A Note From Dr. Heidi Schreiber-Pan

Welcome to the Center for Nature Informed Therapy. Nature informed therapy is a form of clinical counseling that integrates the healing properties of the natural world into mental health treatment. 

We believe in the ability of nature to transform and renew people’s well-being. 

Our counselors and coaches have explored the health effects of being in nature and found that people benefit tremendously from having a close connection with the more-than-human world.

We all become better human beings when we encounter nature in an intimate way.




To all those who supported us this weekend at our grand opening event!
