Welcome to Sole to Soul Therapy and Consulting, a dedicated walk-and-talk therapy practice.
If you are anxious, depressed, stuck, or stressed, you have come to the right place. You want to feel better and you are looking for support. At Sole to Soul Therapy & Consulting, we approach mental, emotional, and relational wellbeing from an integrated and holistic approach.
Wellbeing occurs at the intersection of various aspects of our health including physical, mental, emotional and relational health. Our wellbeing is also influenced by other factors including major life changes such as changes in relationship status, occupational changes, health changes, grief, or loss of any kind. Even positive changes in any of these areas of life create new types of stress to which we must adapt. Deterioration in any given aspect of wellbeing may have an impact on other areas. I help individuals restore balance in their mental, emotional, and relational health through traditional talk therapy with a twist–I take therapy off the couch, outside for walk-and-talk therapy sessions.
Walk-and-talk therapy combines the therapeutic benefits of traditional counseling with physical activity (i.e., walking) in a natural setting. Individuals who engage in physical activity report improvement in mood and thoughts. Individuals who spend time in nature report similar improvements, as well as feeling more relaxed, restored, and connected.Improvements in wellbeing increase when physical activity is combined with time spent outdoors. Participants in walking meetings have reported increases in creative thinking up to 60%. Walk-and-talk therapy sessions are, in essence, walking meetings between client and therapist. When individuals are stuck in their current circumstances and need to think more creatively about next steps, what better way to do so than with an impartial, nonjudgmental, third party willing to accompany them through the next stages of their life’s journey?
