You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
Love what it Loves.
– Mary Oliver, “Wild Geese”
I'm Leslie, a clinical social worker (LCSW) and certified Gestalt therapist based in Philadelphia. Talking the Walk reflects the core values of slowing down, prioritizing experience, integrating mind and body, and embracing paradox. I’m passionate about using these values to help you heal from trauma, reconnect to the wisdom of your body, and build more authentic & fulfilling relationships—with others and, even more importantly—with yourself.
