Michael Sullivan, MA, NCC is the owner/operator at Willder Sage LLC. He worked in wilderness therapy (Open Sky) and in his own private practice, that has worked with hundreds of families doing workshops & personalized experiences. He believes in the transformative power of nature will heal the mind, body, and spirit. In a world that has pulled us away from our natural roots, Willder Sage is committed to helping individuals rediscover their connection to the Earth. Our modern lifestyles, driven by unsustainable practices and technology, have left many of us feeling disconnected and unfulfilled. We carry the weight of limiting stories and seek solace in therapy and intoxicants. Through our guided wanders and sit spots in nature, we invite you to embark on a journey of reconnection. By asking thought-provoking questions and encouraging introspection, we create space for nature to illuminate the path to healing and reintegration of forgotten parts. Let Willder Sage help you weave your life back into the rich tapestry of the natural world, where true connection and healing await.

⛰️ By blending the realms of psychology and nature, this profound work encourages us to embrace new ways of thinking and feeling within a safe, open environment devoid of limitations. Venturing into the boundless expanse that nature offers us, this unique opportunity to shed the confines of societal walls and ceilings, setting the stage for unrestricted personal growth. As we immerse ourselves in the embrace of the natural world, we find solace in its unconditional and non-judgmental support, allowing us to explore our vulnerabilities while also basking in our peak moments. Through our deep connection with nature, we uncover the healing power of being in harmony with all living things. This holistic integration of heart, mind, body, and soul restores us to optimal well-being and illuminates the path to our true purpose.

⛰️ Willder Sage offers Individual coaching, family coaching, and family retreats/workshops.
