My name is Lori Carter is an ANFT Certified Forest Therapy Guide and proprietor of Interconnected Forest Therapy. I have called Northwest Arkansas my home for the last 30 years.

I grew up in Southern Illinois and graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a degree in Recreation Administration with a concentration in Therapeutic Recreation.

After working in the Therapeutic Recreation field for many years, I transitioned to a corporate job. Having spent many years in that world, my heart was begging me to get back to the natural world. That’s when I heard about becoming a Forest Therapy Guide. I knew I had to do it.

I enrolled in the certification course through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy and became a certified guide. It was one of the best decisions of my life.

Now I’d love to share this practice with you. Come join one of my walks or just contact me with any questions you have. I love to talk about the practice and answer questions.
