Frequently Asked Questions
We believe that better emotional help starts one step at a time. Whether you're starting therapy for the first time or you're looking for an emotional tune up, our therapists are ready to meet you where you are, on and off the trail.
Read below to learn more about our model of care and understand what makes Trailtalk's approach unique and accessible.
What type of therapy do you do?
Our signature walk and talks are experiential in nature. Literally. Nature is our setting and most important therapy tool. Trailtalk therapists choose interventions based on the unique needs of each client. We do mindfulness work, coping strategy skill building (often known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT), use solution focused techniques, and EMDR.

Do you do therapy in your van?
Sometimes! We might choose to meet at a park, or on a path, and sit in the van with the door open to a beautiful backdrop. Sometimes we will meet at the park, or on a path, and walk and talk. The van is there to access supplies or watch something on the TV related to the therapy we are doing that day. The van brings therapy to you!
How do I access my out-of-network benefit?
On the back of your insurance card, there should be a toll free number for questions related to your mental health benefit. When calling, be sure to check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
What are my mental health benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network provider?
What is the usual and customary amount for a therapist in SLC/Park City, Utah?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
How much does Trailtalk cost?
Each Trailtalk location and type of session has its own fees. When you request an appointment, you will receive any applicable forms for that service and the cost of a session. Our sessions range from $150 - $300+, depending on the service and location.
Do you accept insurance?
Many health insurance carriers accept Trailtalk therapists as out-of-network providers. It is up to each client to contact their insurance carrier regarding coverage. At the end of each month, Trailtalk provides its clients with a superbill or statement, which they can then submit to their insurance companies for reimbursement if they choose.
What if I don't want to walk and talk?
Walking and talking is one therapy approach Trailtalk employs. It’s not suited for everyone, and is not appropriate for every type of therapy issue. Trailtalk therapists will discuss taking therapy off the couch with each client at the initial visit to determine if it is a treatment approach that works for them.
