Walk and Talk Therapy and Coaching
Walk Talk Therapy and Coaching 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-and-talk therapy combines the therapeutic benefits of traditional counseling with moderate exercise (i.e., walking) in a natural setting.
It encourages you to be more physically active for mental and physical reasons.
It helps you to 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 to create fulfilling and lasting change.
