"Thanks to this course, I can do what I do better. Through theThe Nature-Led Approach Certification program I am now able to design my programs with greater confidence, deliver a more effective and transformative experience for the young people I serve, as well as communicate my methods more readily to parents, teachers, therapists, and the public.
The Nature-Led Approach has helped me develop an understanding of the science and showed me how to apply it in a way accessible to myself, my staff, parents, and the public."
Christopher Green, Co-Owner of the Guelph Outdoor School, Ontario, Canada
"As an occupational therapist and nature connection mentor working with kids, the Nature-Led Approach training is the most meaningful learning I have done to inform my practice. Kathleen’s integration of current scientific evidence, human development, deep nature connection, and healthy cultural practices is comprehensive and visionary. This is precisely the knowledge and skill set that any professional working with kids (or people, really) needs to meet the demands of this societal and environmental moment and to create a hopeful, healthy future."
Megan Barrow, MOTR/L, Nature Connection Mentor and Owner at Thriving Wild, Wisconsin, U.S.A.
"This course of study has changed me and the manner that I will perform occupational therapy, in a profound way. Kathleen has distilled together the essence of nature connection and the wisdom of years as a pediatric occupational therapist into a work of art. I highly recommend this course."
Mary Ann Hull - School based occupational therapist of 25 years, New Mexico.
The Nature-Led Approach is informing me on how to be more human.

"I have very much enjoyed and learned so much from participating in this course! I am most grateful for the new perspective I have gained regarding how we can better provide meaningful and relevant support to the children we work with. Each session builds on information that is extremely valuable and applicable to our daily interactions with our students and nature."
