Learn To Thrive, Not Just Survive
Active Talks is simply going for a walk, throwing a ball, heading for a hike, rolling a bowling ball, or working out while talking with a therapist using their knowledge and life experience to help you find your best path.
Active Talks Are...
HAVING A CONVERSATION & MOVING AS WE TALK
We believe you are a unique person who has realized they need to talk with someone who will listen and wants to work with them. We are caring people who want to listen to your story and collaborate with you on finding your next steps and the clarity you are looking for.
LOOKING AT YOUR LIFE AS A STORY AND FINDING YOUR NEXT CHAPTER.
Everything that has led us to now is supposed to teach us about tomorrow. We will look at your journey and the steps that led you to here through a narrative approach, find the lessons learned, and then chart out where you want to go next
The Research Says...
THE MIND AND BODY WORK BEST TOGETHER
Studies shows that exercise is good for the body and mind and helps with many psychological issues, including depression. Therapy is also proven to work and is aided by being outdoors, especially with teens and adolescents with depression.
We believe outdoor talk therapy and exercise together will help you activate your endorphins and unlock the most creative ways to make your best life decisions. We also trust that soliciting your feedback and working collaboratively with you each step of the way will help you get your best results.

Why I Do This
I love listening to stories, whether they are funny or sad, sincere or corny, honest or not exactly. I always appreciate getting to know others through their words and emotions. I equally enjoy helping people get to where they want to go in this life. I have been blessed many times by people who have helped me on my journey, and I prize the opportunity to help you. I believe that having someone with an open ear and caring heart will help you heal, restore, and prepare for your best journey.
Dr. Scott Sorensen Clinical Psychologist
I have worked with a lot of folks and experience using many therapies, but what I’ve really learned is that each person has a unique story and needs someone to help them find their next direction.
