Outdoor / Walk & Talk Therapy
Change your scenery - change your point of view
What is Walk & Talk Therapy?
Walk & Talk therapy is a form of counseling that takes your sessions outside, where you will benefit from breathing fresh air, feeling the sunshine on your face, and seeing a wider view of the world.
You're in the office all day, boxed in by four walls without a view. Or you may be home all day with your kids trying to be both parent and teacher while working remotely. You really need some time and space that’s just for you. Being inside so much, you may only see the sun during your commute or only briefly at lunch. And you may sit all day which has made you feel a little stuck in both body, mind and spirit.
Research shows that physical movement encourages psychological movement and can accelerate breakthroughs and change. Gentle exercise produces brain chemicals called endorphins that have a proven positive impact on mental health–especially depression and anxiety.
Basically, you just need some fresh air to clear your mind and to stretch your legs, and someone who’s there only for you. I can walk alongside you to help you make sense of it all, or imagine a different future. Now might be the perfect time if anything is ever going to change and be different in your life.
Walk & Talk Therapy can happen in a public park or on nearby trails and can be a leisurely walk or a brisk hike (whichever you prefer). Either way, it has the added benefit of providing you with the in-person support of a trained therapist. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, or you’re just not “feeling it”, of course, we can meet via video or phone instead.
