Green Exercise Therapy
the integration of mind, body, soul, and nature for the sake of deep personal development and healing
I offer Green Exercise Therapy for adolescents and adults of all ages. Moving beyond what has been called “Walk and Talk Therapy,” Green Exercise Therapy operates from the belief that meaningful personal change, growth and healing can occur when combining psychotherapy, physical fitness, and a conscious engagement with nature in one cohesive experience.
Green Exercise is defined as the engagement in physical activity while being exposed to nature. Green Exercise Therapy is a therapeutic approach that integrates this form of exercise (hiking or jogging, primarily) as a key component of psychotherapeutic treatment.
I offer Green Exercise Therapy for those that would prefer the therapeutic experience to take place while engaging in movement outdoors, those seeking more connection to nature, and/or those seeking a new relationship with their body.
This can occur in alternation with in-office psychotherapy sessions, or serve as the primary space of the therapeutic experience. Depending on the person, we will walk, hike, and/or jog during our sessions. This is offered in both Marin and San Francisco.
