What People are Saying About our Programs and Mentors...

“I appreciated the freedom Caitlin gave us to be playful in a way that worked for each of us.  It was quite an edge for me to even imagine that my only job was to have fun … She held a very safe space that allowed me to fully embrace my playful side and I thank her for that.”  – Donna Helete

“I contacted Caitlin for help with a challenging work situation. I was so petrified with self-judgment and dread of doing something wrong in front of my more-experienced co-worker that I couldn't find any creativity for planning. I was ready to quit, but I called Caitlin instead… [Thanks to her guidance] I've been able to find more energy and creativity without getting bogged down in self-doubt and self-judgment.” - Jennifer Bresse

“Being mentored by Caitlin ... is akin to having a large fairy show up to take you on a marvelous magical deep nature connection journey dipped in sweet mystery, grace and fun.
Caitlin helped me face a fear of heights. That release in my body and success at the ledge has made a real difference translating into more courage in challenging situations....
My love and comfort in nature continues to grow and I have much gratitude for Caitlin’s mentoring in the field which has sparked more joy and connection in the wild...with love and a thankful heart” – Marie McCree
