“The EcoPsychology Initiative works with individuals and organizations who want a system for growth and positive impact. We psychologically apply nature’s principles to increase healing engagement, and leadership. Our diverse programming psychologically uses nature’s relationships, principles and experiences. We help assess where you are, design solutions for where you want to be and empower you to implement the changes needed to get there. The process will yield the very growth, healing, impact and leadership everyone is wanting and the world is needing. Our psychological biomimicry provides a model for how to cultivate thriving on all levels of society: people, prosperity and the planet.”
