Eva Sterling first discovered the benefits of eco-therapy after working a season at a national park. After growing up a city girl, she was astounded by how much better she felt surrounded by the splendor of the natural world.
After another brief spate living in a city, she was relieved to once again move to the country, this time to a small town in the Pacific Northwest.
Living across the street from a forest path, she has discovered that just sitting in nature is the best way to cope with the stresses of everyday life.
As an autistic person, she sometimes is overwhelmed. But each time she has a meltdown, the forest offers the welcome respite she needs to recover mental clarity. Now, she wants to share the benefits of ecotherapy with others.
