Mickey's Eco Therapy Journey

Mickey has an impressive background in wilderness therapy guiding, yoga/somatic embodiment, and environmental justice. She has committed her career to bridging the perceived separation between humans and the natural world in her role as an eco-therapist. Mickey has a Master's degree in clinical mental health, with a specialization in wilderness therapy, and is passionate about providing nature-based, somatic, and mindfulness interventions in fun and accessible ways.

Mickey adores working with adolescents and young adults, and has provided care for youth in the foster care system and in wilderness therapy settings for over seven years. She enjoys facilitating nature-based rites of passage for significant life transitions, and balancing recreation with reverence.

As a wilderness first responder and whitewater river guide, Mickey is enthusiastic about managing risk and maximizing fun in the outdoors - it's where she finds connection and serenity. 

Mickey's excited about joining the Rooted Life Adventures team in Costa Rica this summer, and is particularly looking forward to meeting the students that she will be living with, day in and day out, over the next six weeks.
