-Going Outdoors to Do Inner Work

Stillwater Counseling offers over 20 years of experience in Outdoor Counseling.


Being Outside Can Empower Positive Life Changes

As both a private counselor and a seasoned outdoorsman, I’ve found that Nature offers my clients a unique opportunity to get the most out of their inner work.

There’s something about the outdoor setting that can catalyze significant, positive, and sustainable changes in our lives.

When planning an outdoor counseling session, each of my clients receives:

  • A Completely Customized Session Plan
  • Any Location They Choose (nationwide)
  • Any Activity They Choose (hiking, boating, etc.)
  • An Empowering Experience

I recommend outdoor counseling to clients who want to get back in touch with themselves, regain balance in their life, or who want to address specific issues that are particularly difficult.

I invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation with my by filling out the form on this page or by clicking the button below. You can also use the form to simply ask a question, if you like.

I look forward to hearing from you.

More About Outdoor Counseling Sessions

I find that working in an environment where you feel comfortable and safe – and even inspired – significantly increases the potential for developing our connection and your personal growth. That’s why I willingly work in whatever environment that best suits you, including that I provide outdoor counseling sessions in any location that you wish.

Where Would You Like to Meet?

For others who want to do intensive work in a wilderness setting, I am an experienced outdoorsman and it is not unusual for me to spend multiple days with clients at a cabin walking the local trails or a remote beach,  or even on an extended backpacking excursion.  To learn more about this option, see my page about Stillwater Journeys.

I have worked with clients on ski slopes in Wyoming, while walking in Central Park and through the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and on patios and in backyards around the country. In addition, we can meet by phone or Skype video conference. What matters most is that you and I meet and work in a place where you feel inspired, comfortable and safe. That’s what makes my practice unique.

We Can Also Meet In My Neck of the Woods

My home is in the beautiful, verdant White Mountains of New Hampshire near the towns of Easton, NH and Franconia, NH. This region is famous for its natural beauty in all seasons, and is a center for outdoor recreation. There is comfortable lodging in the area surrounding where I live and work, which makes this an excellent option if you would like to get away from the distractions of your home environment and be in a lovely, natural setting.

If you prefer to meet in a city, Boston is a two hour drive from where I live, but again, I’m happy to work with you in any other place that you choose.

I will be in contact soon to talk about the custom setting that is right for you.
