Can I start a nature therapy business without any certifications?

I want to take people hiking while they tell me about whatever's going on with them. If they want an opinion from me on the matter then I'll work with them, otherwise they'd basically just be paying me to vent while being taken on a hike they have never been on before.

Can I just start charging $60 - $80 an hour for this without having to worry about anything? I live in CA

    If you actually make any money doing this you'll have to pay taxes and maybe eventually have to either buy a business license or incorporate or register as a DBA.

    Call yourself a life coach, not a therapist. Most people would like to see that you have had some kind of training or see a real therapist who is bound by confidentiality rules.
