ONLINE Ecotherapy Certificate and Training Program, Level 1, Spring 2017 

Do you experience healing in Nature and want to offer this to your clients?

Are you feeling alone in practicing Ecotherapy or nature-practices with clients?

Do you want Ecotherapy training and guidelines to feel more confident?

Would you like inspiration and support from other clinicians as you develop your work?

 I’ve created an online program just for you


The Level 1 Ecotherapy Certificate and Training Program

You’ll receive practical training, case consultation and peer collaboration to integrate Ecotherapy and Earth-based work directly into your practice. 

You’ll experience a foundational grounding and a wide breadth of techniques to work with more knowledge and confidence.

You’ll have a container to explore client cases and your questions about Ecotherapy. 


Here’s what participants are saying about the program:

Prior to discovering Ariana’s program, I had been seeking some kind of online Ecotherapy training as there was nothing available in my area. The Online Ecotherapy Certificate program has far exceeded my expectations in terms of the academic material, Ariana’s knowledge and expertise on the subject, and the ease of working together online.

Professionally, this program is teaching me the skills to incorporate Nature-based clinical practices easily and beautifully into my current social work practice. Most of all, the value of connecting with like-minded professionals and the sharing of knowledge has been invaluable. On a personal level, this program is opening me up even more to the healing possibilities available to us through the natural world, and deepening even further my love and respect for this planet and all its life.

 -Maria Valastro, MSW, Senior International Student Adviser | Brisbane, Australia

This course was beneficial and welcoming of anybody who has any level of interest in the field of Ecotherapy.  The forum is open, yet gently ushers the learner to growing through academic, theoretical, practical, shared learning and thus creates a holistic learning experience.  The course also offers an approach that is conducive to both clinical and less clinical participants – enabling learning to happen without superficial boundaries.

Ariana's on-line program is great! The combination of having a consultation group to connect with, individual webinars to learn from, and the opportunity to become familiar with the research and theories is especially effective. It has helped me become a more well-rounded clinician. The program also helped me to build my confidence and explore my identity and unique gifts as a professional. I have also loved the opportunity to begin connecting with other ecotherapists from aross the world. 

 -Amy Sugeno, LCSW,  Texas

This course was a welcome community of people who are working to bring us as a human species into closer connection and relationship with the web of life. It is filled with practical information to get you started in working with people outdoors or with nature indoors as well as the ethical, legal, and practical questions that may arise as you evolve your practice. Whether you are a therapist or other practitioner in the community, you will find it a welcome home.
