Walk and talk therapy can save you time by combining exercise and therapy in one. Sometimes it is easier to talk more openly walking side by side rather than face to face as in a typical therapeutic setting.
You pick the pace. It can be a stroll or a power walk. You decide if we take breaks. I can meet you in your neighborhood or a public park. In inclement weather we can meet at a mall.
