About Grow With Nature Consulting

Grow With Nature Consulting was founded by Alice Nelson, MS, LMFT and is a DBA through the non-profit Neurotherapeutic Pediatric Therapies, Inc. 
We are committed to growing the field of Nature Based Therapy through building professional community, reducing barriers to education, and offering free events. Check out our feature in The Oregonian!

When Alice was hired at Neuro during the beginning of COVID times, she proposed to create a Nature Based Therapy Program at Neuro as a way to safely meet clients outside. Now, Neuro’s Nature Based Program includes training, regular consultation, and standardized policies and procedures for how to ethically incorporate Nature Based Therapy into clinical practice.

The Nature Based Program has been so successful at Neuro that Grow With Nature Consulting was developed to further promote teaching Nature Based Therapy to other professionals.
