Fresh Air + Movement + Nature = Whole Healing

What is walk-and-talk therapy?

It is exactly what it sounds like. We leave the traditional therapy setting behind and conduct our session outside while walking - on the beach. You receive the benefits of therapy while integrating a more mindful, body oriented approach. 

Why combine walking and therapy?

Integrating movement in therapy will activate different areas of your brain and strengthen your mind-body connection.

It often helps client's get "unstuck" when confronting difficult issues.

 The client is grounded to nature, the rhythm of their breath, and all while soothing the nervous system.

This gives you the opportunity to release physical tension, increase creativity and access different parts of your brain. 

Movement can make it easier for some people to discuss their feelings.

 

It provides endorphins, dopamine and serotonin during to help improve symptoms of anxiety and depression.

 

What happens in a session?

We will meet at a designated spot at Sunset Beach. The first 40 minutes will be spent walking and talking and we will close up our session with a short summary.

How do I know which type of session to choose?

You don't have to pick just one! Once you get established, we will discuss the type of session you prefer. Some clients do a combination of in-person, tele-health and walk-and-talk.
