Together we can co-create a connected, safe, and judgment-free space to work through the things preventing you from living the life you want to live.
“I help people whose anxiety takes over at the worst possible moments.” I believe strongly in the strength of feeling a sense of connectedness and belonging to family, community, and land.

Sarah Duncan's Groups

The Healing Forest, nature based group for girls

This nature-based group for children and youth pairs nature-based activities with storytelling and other expressive arts approaches. It is designed to strengthen coping and resilience in children who have been through common causes of stress such as the divorce of parents, moving home, the illness of a loved one or bullying. It can also be used in the aftermath of large-scale crises to prevent and treat post-traumatic stress disorder.

More about this group

Waves of Change

Waves of Change is a free program beginning in February 2022 aimed toward young women (19-30) who identify anxiety as a barrier in their lives and are looking to develop resources and coping strategies to help them manage anxiety and stress (an official diagnosis of anxiety disorder is not required). This program fosters positive mental health through enhancing both physical activity and social connectedness in the lives of young women. It takes a holistic health perspective and builds resiliency and skills which can hopefully be integrated into the women’s lives moving forward.
