Guiding youth in overcoming life challenges through adventure based counseling and education.
Counseling for Youth, Adults, and Families
Adventure Works serves ages 0-26 and believes that people of any age can benefit from our effective approach to counseling. In conjunction with the use of adventure activities, our therapists provide an engaging way of counseling to promote growth and change, often called adventure therapy.
You can learn more about how adventure therapy is defined by clicking here. Our program is evidence supported and we were recently published in the Journal of Social Work for Groups. You can access the research here.
Adventure Works therapists are committed to a client-centered approach incorporating the most effective and appropriate treatment options for their client(s). By working as a partner in the process, therapists can help identify a client's own strengths and supports to meet their goals.
Adventure Works is a non-profit organization and strives to provide counseling services to youth regardless of their ability to pay using a sliding fee scale, supplemented by grants and donations from the community.
Adventure Works accepts many insurance plans and private pay fees with adult clients. Due to our non-profit status and funding structure, no financial support is available for adult clients at this time.
