"If you're realizing that you're too far from home (your inner nature) and are considering Forest Therapy, don't look any further. Kat is an unusually beautiful soul who is deeply connected to nature and has a wisdom beyond her years. She lives what she offers. I had one conversation with her and had surprising insights." - K.G.
