Nature Informed Psychotherapy
What is Nature Informed Therapy?
The Center of Nature Informed Therapy offers a new and exciting way to explore the intersection of mental health and nature-informed healing in Towson. It presents an inspiring and hope-filled worldview that meaningful engagement with the natural world can, and will, provide relief from anxiety, stress, and depression.
Our Towson based outdoor therapy programs in Monkton and Owings Mills are a method of mental health counseling that invites the natural world as a co-facilitator for well-being and overall healing. Taking therapy goals into an outdoor environment can augment and amplify the therapeutic process.
Our outdoor therapy programs in Towson, Monkton, and Owings Mills help you to heal in nature, utilizing elements such as water and rocks and practical exercises to compliment one’s inner work. On occasion, it involves walking or hiking. It’s a post-modern, experiential approach that is influenced by positive psychology, mindfulness and solution-focused interventions.
