Walk and Talk

Jeff Adorador MS, LMFT

Walk and Talk Therapy is a growing trend in the mental health that provides all of the fundamental benefits of psychotherapy with the additional benefit of light exercise and exposure to the natural elements.
    Jeff Adorador has over two decades of experience guiding in the wilderness and holds a License as a Marriage and Family Therapist.  Jeff’s experience in the health profession has included working in wilderness therapy and behavior modification programs across the nation, providing crisis intervention in hospital emergency room settings, counseling in schools, facilitating anger management support groups, and providing counseling and parent education while managing family crisis centers.  Jeff currently provides counseling and therapeutic services for individuals, couples and families in his private practice.  

Jeff's theoretical orientation tends to be, humanistic, client-centered and solution focused.  He also finds value in the process of examining the past but only in the context of moving forward toward a more compelling future. Jeff places a strong emphasis on emotional expression, emotional intelligence and clarity of communication.

As Jeff states," I am not only here to support clients through changes, I am also here to hold up the mirror for clients to view their own current state of mind which directly impacts their life circumstances. Clearly seeing oneself can promote healing, growth and maturation."

Daniel Gregory Amen is an American psychiatrist, a brain disorder specialist, director of the Amen Clinics, and a ten-times New York Times bestselling author.  He is revolutionizing diagnosis and treatment using both innovative technology and holistic interventions.  I was able to talk to him about Walk and Talk Therapy. He gave me permission to quote him saying, “Getting outside, absorbing vitamin D from the sun and incorporating exercise into the treatment can be much more effective than just sitting in an office for talk therapy.”
