Kristin Rodreick Wilson
I provide a slightly different form of therapy that is starting to be termed ‘walk and talk’ therapy. Not having to sit in an office with someone staring at them, asking them to share their innermost feelings, has not only been a relief for some of my clients, but many have reported that the act of walking side by side has been ‘freeing’. The release of endorphins from walking provides calm and relaxation and the act of ‘walking together’ fosters a sense of partnership on their journey. Clients have described to me that the simple act of walking, has led them to feel more comfortable sharing their stories, and I’ve found that they appear much more open to new ideas and perspectives, leaving them more able to work towards positive change.
I currently walk with clients in the Minneapolis skyways during the winter or inclement weather and along West River Parkway when weather permits. I do have an office located at 19 S 1st St and the option to meet in the office rather than go for a walk is always an option as well!
