I'm Milena (she/her). 

Thanks for visiting my website. I'm a certified guide with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy. The seed of and name of Wild Calm was planted in 2018 when I was spending a lot of time alone in the woods with my dog. I instinctually retreated into the forest as I was struggling through a severe bout of depression. And it really helped. I looked around online to see if there was something to it. I stumbled upon the ANFT site and realized that forest therapy IS A THING and it would be a calling I could answer. Sharing the health benefits the forest can provide with others is something I'm so grateful to be able to do.

Prior to forest therapy, I have a degree in biology and a Master's in Resource and Environmental Management. I'm a proud biracial woman. I speak Spanish and Portuguese and I love kayaking.
