Nature Therapy Guide

Laurie Couillard's love of nature began with the joy of watching her own children and those she cared for over the years, as a teacher, discover their world through nature walks and activities designed for every season. As the years went on, her connection to nature and the belief that health is positively impacted by time spent in nature grew stronger, and she went on to earn her wellness degree, her certification as a Wisconsin Master Naturalist, and a nature therapy guide certification.

Her hope is to encourage people to experience the important health benefits for mind, body and spirit that can be achieved through the nature connection for themselves and their family.

“In a world that is full of overstimulation, connecting with nature will help to restore balance.”

-Laurie Couillard

Laurie came to speak at our organization and it was phenomenal. She backed up her insights with studies but made it relatable and entertaining. I’m excited to take this back and incorporate her PECSS method with my family

Listening to Laurie talk about nature connection was honestly so eye opening for me. The way she uses nature to relate back to our emotions and perspectives is so simple but transformational. She was personable on stage and told some really impactful stories.
