Durango Walk and Talk Therapy and Coaching with Kasey Hall, MA, LPCC, Certified Coach
Experiencing therapy or coaching outside provides perspective and calms the nervous systems simultaneously. In nature, there are so many metaphors to draw upon. Like the changing seasons, some light and bright, and others cold and severe, the seasons of our lives change too, each with their own challenges and joys.
About Kasey Hall:
I grew up in the San Bernardino mountains of Southern California. I have always been captivated by nature, particularly its capability to engage the imagination and open up fields of possibility in the mind, restoring perspective and reminding each of us who we really are. Before I became a counselor I was a professional modern dancer and then a Waldorf teacher, both of which created an excellent foundation for exploration of the inner world. I spent seven years in graduate school earning a masters degree in mindfulness-based counseling at Naropa University. This foundation is what allows me to be able to bring this rich and deeply meaningful experience of using the outer environment to go inward, to go beyond persona and touch the core of being. Most people find it easier to open up and talk about their innermost lives in what is, in reality, our most natural environment, our first home, nature. My vision is to create a space to share the healing of nature with a society overwhelmed with technical advances, but in much need of coming back to its roots.
Whether to Choose Therapy or Coaching
A good rule of thumb when deciding whether to do therapy or coaching is whether you are looking for healing from past traumas (developmental or events) or looking to make certain improvements in your life and well-being. If you are struggling with anxiety and/or depression, or have received a specific mental health diagnosis that you are looking to heal, therapy will be more suited to your needs. If you are looking for improvement in relationship issues or simply have a desire for a greater level of well-being, coaching may be the right fit for you. Granted there is a lot of crossover between these two modalities and most of us will experience times where we are in need of healing and at other times are ready to fan the flames of enthusiasm. I would welcome anyone who has an interest in healing themselves or developing greater well-being to schedule a consultation with me. Note: Therapy is available to Colorado residents only. Coaching is available across state lines.
