The serenity of the wilderness offers a unique therapeutic quality for those suffering from any number of emotional and behavioral concerns. Combining traditional counseling with natural health and wellness, individuals are empowered to draw upon their own strengths, skills and abilities, many of which they may not even be aware they possess. Following a rites of passage approach to therapy ensures individuals are not just going through the motions of a specific task to be completed but acquire the understanding of the skill or lesson being taught. Overcoming a number of challenges during wilderness treks and adventures will produce a sense of self-reliance, self-respect and confidence teaching individuals new methods and preparing them to deal with the many obstacles faced in daily life.
Each individual is seen and treated as a person and not a diagnoses. Intense but nurturing one on one and group therapies with licensed mental health experts will get to the root of poor behaviors. Learning about proper rest and healthy nutrition with the preparation of holistic foods will promote a healthy lifestyle in an individual from the inside out.
