Bryan’s approach fuses permaculture, ecopsychology and indigenous land tending practices. Growing up in rural Alabama, Bryan was immersed in nature since childhood. After migrating to Berkeley in 2009 to pursue a masters in somatic counseling psychology, he began weaving his rediscovered love for gardening with counseling. He now has an eco-therapy practice alongside his water-wise landscaping business and leads immersive foraging tours in the Bay Area. He has worked on organic farms across the country and now manages a permaculture plot at the Gill Tract Community Farm in Albany, CA. Growing food, habitat and healthy community through permaculture and counseling is a mission he intends to educate the world about.
