Walk + Talk Therapy
Private Walk & Talk Therapy Sessions in Scottsdale
What is Walk + Talk Therapy?
Walk and talk therapy, is a relatively new, innovative counseling method. Instead of sitting isolated in an office, we focus on moving forward, confronting our fears, and overcoming them.
Walk + Talk Therapy is just as it sounds— the client and the therapist are outside walking during therapy, instead of sitting inside an office.
This counseling method encourages people to be more physically active to promote both mental and physical well-being.

- an increase in confidence and feelings of empowerment and mastery, and
- the reinforcement of the use of walking as a healthy coping mechanism.
MIND AND BODY
Our mind is connected to our body, and when our body moves, our mind is more open to the present moment and change. That’s why it’s crucial to establish a healthy and balanced relationship between our mind and body. The focus on negative thoughts is shifted towards moving, breathing, and just enjoying a good talk while walking.
Walking can be a mindfulness exercise in allowing the horizon to keep one present, helping those who need to be outside the confines of four walls. This form of outside therapy helps us connect with nature and become more relaxed and grounded. It is excellent for working on issues related to trauma and anxiety – and many others!
