Le`a Leslie Colter, M.A, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

(Hawaii MFT #71 and California MFT #41582)

When we open up to the adventure of our lives and allow ourselves to connect deeply

with Nature, we can release our emotional burdens. Our problems and stress unwind, allowing us to reach a profound sense of natural Wellness. Immersed in Nature, whether swimming in an ocean, walking on a beach, or hiking a forest trail, we begin to appreciate the gift of being fully alive.

Filled with natural vitality and clarity about ourselves and our relationships, we are refreshed and rejuvenated for the return home.

Take the time to regain your balance ~ alone, with a partner or with the whole family - while on Vacation!
