Walk and Talk Therapy and Coaching
Walk Talk Therapy is just like it sounds—the client and the therapist are outside walking during therapy instead of sitting inside an office. I help individuals restore balance in their mental and emotional health through traditional talk therapy with a twist–I take therapy off the couch, outside on the core trail, Spring Creek or a neighborhood walk in downtown Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The walk can be in lieu of an office appointment or it can be joined with an office appt. and be from 10-50 minutes in length.
Many clients say that Walk Talk Therapy is a more relaxed environment than the counseling office. Others state that it is a great way to jump start or support a fitness routine or active lifestyle. Walking while sharing your struggles and life situations can also be meditative. Walk Talk Therapy encourages healthy activity for adults and teens.
Walk-and-talk therapy combines the therapeutic benefits of traditional counseling with moderate exercise (i.e., walking) in a natural setting.
It encourages a patient to be more physically active for mental and physical reasons.
It helps a patient get "unstuck" when confronting difficult issues.
It spurs creative, deeper ways of thinking often released by mood-improving physical activity.
Movement propels people forward -- literally and figuratively. So let's move forward together to get you moving in the right direction in your journey.
