Nature Program Mentoring

It’s an exciting time dreaming about launching a nature play, outdoor learning, or therapy program or service!  It can be overwhelming to figure out how to move your dream into reality.   

I understand – I have been there!  Even with access to quality books, resources, courses, and curriculum, the details of running an a outdoor play, therapy, & service can be overwhelming.  

After spending 10 months planning, training, and developing, I successfully launched a nature program bringing over 150 people to the launch event, sold out programs in the first month, and facilitated over 100 days of programming in the first year.   That second year, I expanded to offer outdoor occupational therapy services to provide even more kids the opportunity to grow & connect with nature.  Now, my outdoor OT services have expanded to offer groups, summer camp, individual sessions, and I have added another therapist!  

Working with a mentor can be instrumental as you develop, get started with your own systems procedures, and unique spin on the program design & services you offer.  Let’s dig in >> Together!

What this Mentoring is Not:

  • A substitution to the highly valuable and rich provider training of the TimberNook organization.   This mentorship is a great option if you are considering becoming a TimberNook provider or a compliment to your TimberNook training to help you launch a successful program.
  • A replacement of the nature based therapist training provided by Outdoor Kids OT – ConTiGo course.  This mentorship can support your implementation and development of this course knowledge but if you are interested in starting nature-based small group services, this course is highly recommended.

Our training with other organizations and mentors has helped us to refine a system that works for us,
but all resources and advice is uniquely our own and not the property of other organizations.  

What They Have Said...

"The mentoring calls were very helpful for me to get practical advice on starting my nature-based practice. It was very useful for me to run my ideas by Angela and get feedback on what had worked in her experiences."
Kristi Hinckley
OTR, Occupational Therapist, Business Owner
"My work with Angela helped me see the enormous therapeutic benefit and carryover for outdoor OT. She has the skills, knowledge, and business experience to help other therapists make this worthwhile shift! And it comes from her deep desire to give kids the best chance to grow into their best selves."
Amy Mowbray
COTA, TimberNook Provider
"As a new business owner it is the small things that add up and I stress about! It is easy to lose confidence and want to give up. Even if I go to a business mentor from the community, I find myself explaining more about what my business is than actually just getting to the point on what I truly need! Angela has the experience and knowledge and " just gets it"! She is able to fill in those gaps that I need to keep GOING to be successful! Angela's wisdom, professional knowledge, and big heart helped me not get overwhelmed and kept my dream alive!"
Nicole Ferber
COTA, TimberNook Provider
"I had a meeting with Angela to discuss starting my private practice providing nature based OT services. In only one hour, she clarified so many questions for me that I had been struggling with for weeks to months! She helped me define how to begin and discussed growth, provided some specific suggestions to get started and gave me both practical and business related advice. It was extremely valuable and I'd highly recommend this connection to other OTs looking into nature based OT services."
