Mary has been working outdoors and experientially since 2000 in Atlanta, GA and since 2006 in the Asheville, NC area. “I truly believe in experiential forms of therapy and the transformative impact healthy relationships, animals, and nature have on us. Nature and our sentient companions offer us so much comfort and peace if we are willing to accept the wisdom these experiences bring us.”
