Why out in nature?
Powerful experiences happen in green spaces. Nature heals and teaches. Our blood pressure and stress hormones naturally decrease. The ambient air, sound, and sights activate parts of our brain the indoors cannot. A sense of belonging emerges. When we have a deeper relationship with nature, we want to take better care of the earth, each other, and ourselves.
You don’t have to do this alone or without a professional. When our car breaks down or is making a strange sound, we take it to a mechanic. Our minds, spirits, and bodies are just as important.
I don’t have to charge as much per session when in free green spaces – the average individual or couples therapy session costs $175-200/hour. I can charge less and offer more. Without the overhead costs, middle-income people can have access.
You’re not sitting in an office with someone saying, “Mmmhmmm” – and focusing on what is wrong. We are out walking and hiking in nature having fun. We are also seriously talking about your dreams, solutions to problems, and steps to get there.
Nature and movement therapy gives you the tools and the experience to literally move to how you want to be and experience the world.
Hi, I’m Yvette.
I love helping women, couples and families using the power of nature, movement and psychotherapy. We go from stressed and disconnected to feeling rejuvenated and a strong connection to yourself, others, and nature.
While hiking and soaking up nature in green spaces, I love to help you practice and rehearse practical tools that are both simple and revolutionary.
MOVE toward your ideal self, body, relationships, and life experience.
I am a licensed psychotherapist who studied a holistic approach to psychotherapy in San Francisco’s California Institute of Integral Studies. I am a parent, partner, and social activist – also a dancer and artist.
Immigration Evaluations – I’ve been completing comprehensive evaluations since 2007. I have specifically been administering evaluations for immigration cases (Hardship Waivers, U-Visa, VAWA, and Asylum) in the Spanish language since 2016.
As a board-licensed psychotherapist, I am credentialed to diagnose clients. In the Virginia court system for Henrico and Chesterfield Counties, I have been cross-examined and deemed an expert in trauma and can be an expert to your case.
