These qualifications are unnecessary for me to

for you to connect with the land and your inner self.
Your Guide: Constance Woodworth
The Forest is the Therapist. I open the doors to your senses.
"Forest Therapy has become a valued service to our residents at El Rancho De La Vida. Her weekly walks amongst the trails and forests on the GWH property are superb! Constance is calm, supportive, inspiring and informative, and highly recommended by all residents and staff. " Carrie S.
"Being a nature enthusiast, I always thought I had a good understanding of Nature, but Constance opened my eyes in a way that I never expected. By the end of the walk I had an emotional release and she was good at making me feel comfortable enough to do so." Jamie T.
"My friend and I were Connie's first clients. We walked in my vegetable and flower garden. The experience was overwhelming in a good way. I was made more aware of my haven by her calming voice and guidance. I found a real connection to my peaceful spot. Thank you and I look forward to a walk in the forest come Spring." Melodie B.
Forest Therapy for Children
I am a certified 020 Maine Teacher. I love working with children from 4-8 years old.
I also enjoy the challenge of working with tweens and teens to help their minds focus and their bodies regulate.
I believe that children do not spend enough time outside: Nature Deficit Disorder. Many children are now scared of nature because they are so removed from it. Nature can be very soothing and restorative for children.
Walks for children are 60-90 minutes long. Private bookings or School Group Bookings are available. Please contact me directly for pricing.
