Ecotherapy – Selva Healing Therapies
Welcome to Selva Healing Therapies! As a holistic and integrative practitioner I work from a whole-person approach incorporating all elements of wellness, including mind, body, spirit, emotion, and nature. Working through a relational and collaborative framework we are able to ignite a shift in your life and foster the deep and meaningful change you have been seeking.
Are you ready to take a step forward into feeling more balanced, grounded, and connected? Are you looking for attuned, compassionately direct, and sincere support to help you tune into your inner wisdom and higher guidance?
If you are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, or maybe overly self-critical and just really not yourself lately, you have come to the right place. You may just be ready for a holistic and integrative approach to address your life from all areas; mind, body, relationships, nature, and spirit. Welcome to your journey, I am honored to walk with you on this path.
Are you looking for a holistic and sustainable way to deepen your connection with yourself and the natural world? Do you love how you feel when you are in and around nature and want to learn more about the world and yourself at the same time while working on your personal goals? Ecopsychology is a field that explores and strengthens the synergistic relationship between the human experience and the natural world, and the practical elements of Ecotherapy is one of the ways this philosophy can be intentionally interwoven into our lives. Ecotherapy seeks to not only increase the wellness of the individual and community, but to also work on nurturing and healing our planet as well.
As a life-long lover of nature, I have been intuitively incorporating these elements into my personal and professional work throughout my life. Upon finding out that there was a name, theory, and practice for this passion, I was beyond excited. I was ignited! While studying Clinical Mental Health Counseling I was able to simultaneously and collaboratively earn a certificate and specialization in Ecopsychology and Ecotherapy. It has been illuminating and wildly inspiring to watch these two practices merge as one.
Ecotherapy can be incorporated into any lifestyle or comfort level with nature. It can be practiced inside the comfort of your own home, out in the wilderness, and everywhere between. We will work with where you are at (both in terms of physical location and internal state), and move in a direction of supportive growth and expansion to meet your personal goals.
As an Audubon Master Naturalist I weave in a profound respect, reverence, and continued development of understanding the ecology of nature into the Ecotherapy approaches I use. I am committed to always staying in a place of wonder and inquiry in the natural world while always deepening my knowledge and understanding of the planet that so beautifully nourishes and sustains us.
If you ever find yourself empty from something you cannot know or name, find a stretch of ocean, a field, or a mountainside, or even clouds or trees. Because there are 1000 simple ways to fill your tired soul so you can remember how to be, how to see, and most importantly, how to breath.

About Jessica Petrone, LPC, Ecotherapist
I have always felt strong passion for the healing arts, the natural world, and being of service. It has been an honor to be able to combine these aspects of life in my path.
I received a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and Sociology from Catawba College. I went on to work as a case manager for a homeless shelter before moving to Zambia for two years. During my time in a small rural village, with no running water or electricity, I was met with the fundamental teaching of the importance of balancing the self, community, and the natural world. After serving in the Peace Corps for two years I returned to the U.S., where I re-introduced myself and integrated back into the country, culture, and land that is my home of origin. I camped in the woods while visiting national parks and friends and family for over 7 months before taking a job in the mountains of Western North Carolina, where I got to teach outdoors to kids in the mountains. It was there that I stumbled upon the field of Ecopsychology and Ecotherapy paired with Counseling.
Since starting the path, I have worked with individuals on the streets in homelessness, in an Intensive Out-Patient substance and dual-diagnosis treatment center, with individuals within the judicial system, in a holistic addiction treatment center in the mountains, in a school for young people with emotional and behavioral challenges, in a wilderness therapy program in the jungle of Costa Rica, and in my private practice, both in person and online. My heart goes deep and wide to meet people where they are and to help each individual to start to undo the programming that has been keeping them stuck, while tuning into and accessing the rooted inner wisdom and strength that is waiting to flourish.
