Therapy is personal. It is important that you find the right fit for you and your family. The right fit means finding a therapist that cares enough to learn about what tools have been proven to work, and then applies that information to the issues you are facing. Kristy Cepielik offers specialized therapy and services for clients by incorporating her preferred Goal Oriented and Attachment Theories of orientation with statistics and facts that have been proven to work therapeutically.
Services & Groups
Edyn Therapy's spacious office overlooks the quaint city of downtown Sierra Madre, California, facilitating individuals, couples, children, family therapy and group sessions. Younger clients enjoy a setting with plenty of books, games and toys to help them feel welcome and comfortable. Our toys are purposefully chosen, most often pertaining to common themes of therapy that children deal with.
Why walking? Walking reduces anxiety, is low impact, and overall it's good for you physically and emotionally. Walking therapy began for clients who were simply not comfortable in an office. Perhaps the office causes them to feel confined, or they tend to express themselves loudly in therapy. Adults enjoy getting out to excercise and accomplish their therapeutic goals, and children and teen clients may feel intimidated by having therapy inside or prefer meeting at a park or taking a walk. The office setting simply may not be the most comfortable or appropriate setting for many for a variety of reasons.
What is walking therapy exactly? Walking Therapy is offered for those who are healthy enough to exercise for an extended period of time, or for a duration that is comfortable for you. The session can stop at a park if you are not ready to walk the entire session. If you like to be outside and enjoy getting exercise, or would like to start an exercise program, walking therapy my be a great option for you, especially if an office setting is one that makes you feel uncomfortable.
Therapy is incorporated into the session, meaning we will conduct therapy and talk as we walk. The sessions begin and end at Edyn Therapy's Sierra Madre, California office. If you prefer to meet in another location, if it is local to Sierra Madre, that can be arranged.
As mentioned, clients interested in walking sessions must be able to walk and in good health. Walking sessions are not conducted if the temperature is uncomfortably hot, or if weather will distract from the therapy session.
