Frequently asked questions

What do I wear to Walk and Talk Therapy?

Please wear comfortable clothes and running shoes to Walk and Talk therapy. You may also want to wear sunglasses, a hat, bug spray, or sunscreen to protect yourself from the elements depending on the weather.

What if it’s supposed to rain?

If the forecast the day before or morning of your scheduled session is predicting rain, we will work together to reschedule your appointment to a more appropriate date and time. If it begins to rain during our session, we can discuss whether you would like to continue, end the session early, or complete the session in a more sheltered location.

Who can benefit from Walk and Talk Therapy?

Individuals who:
- Would like to create a significant change in their lifestyle by incorporating physical movement, talk therapy, healthy habits, and positivity.
- Are looking for an alternative to the in-office, face-to-face, therapeutic approach
- Would like to break through unhealthy habits and incorporate more activity into their lifestyles through a safe and supported approach.
- Would benefit from the meditative and energizing effects of walking in nature and fresh air.

What about confidentiality?

It is understandable that confidentiality is a concern for us and the clients we serve. In Walk and Talk Therapy, it is true that others may overhear the conversation as they walk by or that there is the chance of seeing someone either of us knows along the way. Prior to beginning Walk and Talk Therapy, we will review a consent form together specially tailored to these confidentiality issues and discuss your comfort level with various options. We may agree to limit our conversation when in earshot of another person, and we will make an agreement as to how we will handle the potential situation of running into someone you may know. We may also discuss whether there are certain issues you prefer not to discuss at Walk and Talk therapy, instead opting to discuss those in in-office sessions. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable so that you may get the most out of your therapy session, whether in-office or on the go!
