Certified Healing Garden Designer

As one of the few individuals in the country to be certified (UW) as a Therapeutic and Healing Garden Designer, I love to share the healing power of nature. From small scale adult care to full size adult communities, I can help create healing and therapeutic spaces to improve the care and quality of life for our loved ones.

Over the past decade or so, there have been many studies on the healing effects of nature. Natural settings promote healing and well-being. Because of the strict standards and guidelines for Healing Gardens, I recently became certified through a rigorous 9-month, hands-on program through the University of Washington. I am now one of the nation’s firstHealing Garden designers. This is a natural extension of what I’m most passionate about: designing and adorning spaces that bring joy–even healing–through the natural beauty of our surroundings.
