Surf Therapy is for everyone
The ocean is the most healing place I know. After a decade spent teaching women to surf and noticing the ways that personal issues can come out in surfing, I realized that the ocean can be a proxy for learning to overcome fear, find tools to deal with anxiety, ease depression, and heal trauma. I’ll always love teaching someone to stand up on a surfboard, but now, addressing the mental health aspect has become a new passion.
I’m currently studying for a Masters in Clinical Counseling and have taken a Surf Therapy Facilitator Training with Groundswell Community Project. My mission is to include evidence-based mental health therapy interventions into a holistic surf and lifestyle coaching program.
