Hello! I'm Lissa, the founder of Wasatch Forest Therapy, and a Certified Nature & Forest Therapy Guide. I grew up in a small beach town in Southern California, where my love of nature was fostered by the crying gulls and the saltwater on my lips. My interest in human nature & helping others led me to earn a BS in Psychology while nestled under the Wasatch mountains here in Utah. I have a special relationship with both the beach & the mountains: my two homes. They have each guided and inspired me along my journey and I hope to create the space for others to benefit from the more than human world just as I have.

In recent years, I've followed a personal journey of self-care with practices like meditation, hiking, and mindfulness, much of it in nature. When I came across the concept of 'forest bathing', it immediately resonated, and I knew that guiding others in this healing practice is what I am called to do. I am certified as a guide through The Association of Nature and Forest Therapy (ANFT) and I am beyond thrilled to bring this healing & restorative practice to Utah.
