Nature-Based Walk & Talk Therapy

For individual clients living in Tokyo, Michelle offers therapy sessions in one of the many parks or nature settings around the city. This provides the client direct experience with evidence-based nature therapy that promotes emotional regulation. This option can be particularly beneficial for the client who has been in long-term isolation and is looking for more connection than what can be experienced over a video screen session. In times of this pandemic, nature-based therapy can also serve to provide an in-person session with the ability to social distance. These sessions are rooted in mental health counseling theory and are not promoting exercise. Email Michelle to inquire about nature-based walk & talk therapy at
