Allison Page of Trail Talk joins the program to talk about a unique approach to hiking a local trail, amidst an active therapy session with a trained psychiatric nurse practitioner. It’s a formula for peeling back layers, obstacles, stigmas, and creating a space of trust and safety necessary to explore topics such as anxiety, self esteem, and relationships.
Lynn Ware Peek and Dave Cushing interview Allison Page, founder of Trailtalk, about a group of mental health professionals who help you navigate the issues and challenges of your life while avoiding roots, rocks and other obstacles on local hiking trails.
For many people, there’s something wonderfully therapeutic about a walk in the woods, or a stroll around the neighborhood with friends.
Trailtalk, a business specializing in mental health therapy outside of an office, focuses on the best part of both of those things. Clients who visit therapist Megan Perry at her University Avenue office in downtown Provo, can opt to get their counseling while wandering Provo Canyon, American Fork Canyon, or even their own neighborhood.
“The movement-based format is both highly cathartic and conducive to sharing,” said Amy, whose name has been changed, one of Perry’s current clients.
