Other passions

Deb utilizes Ecopsychology and Eco-Art Therapy methods in programs and group sessions with people who wish to:

  • Explore creative expression.

  • Understand benefits of nature and feel more balanced, healthier and rejuvenated.

  • Enquire into interconnected relationships with self as part of the whole.

  • Learn more about plants, food systems, sustainable practices, and supporting our local environment.

  • Engage in sacred activism, process thoughts and feelings about climate, ecological & sociatal decline: Ie. anxiety, depression, despair, guilt, feelings of being overwhelmed/powerless. See S.O.S

“The individual practice was helpful in allowing me to feel my connection with nature. I was reminded about the inherent gifts that I have and I receive from Nature, which is empowering. I would want to do this practice regularly. I have support from nature and the environment to help me cope. Thank you Deb. It really helped me to calm down.... The exercise gave me a focussed way to have more nature engagement with what’s around me.”
