Why choose

Rooted Life Adventures?

We are the first and only program utilizing every participant’s current at home talk therapist to meet virtually with their client on program to achieve weekly common goals and skill building objectives. By doing this, participants will have a cohesive experience ultimately resulting in seamless continuity of care and supported transition to and from program. 

Rooted Life Adventures benefits both your practice and your client
  • Rooted Life partners with therapists to bring referrals, growth opportunities and resource connection to their practice. Client growth is greatly improved when therapists engage in both didactic and experiential components of treatment as learning involves both cognitive and affective processes. 

  • Collaborating with experiential learning programs is proven to help clients confront their challenges while actively coaching them to explore their emotions and build critical skills. Therapists will engage in wraparound support including parents and our Wellness Director providing a comprehensive, holistic service for the client. Working with various professionals allows for a team-driven approach to wellness, recovery and sustainable health practices. This wraparound method permits therapy to go from problem-solving to a strengths-based, needs driven approach centered around your client and their family.

We work together in the best interest of your client
  • Rooted Life Adventures seamlessly integrates with therapeutic practices as it requires students to have an at-home therapist that will continue care virtually while active in the program. With your evidence based modalities and our psychoeducational curriculum, together we will create a tailored plan to supplement what clients are already doing in session – continuing personal growth while enrolled and even more importantly, continuity when they return home.
Partnering with Rooted Life Adventures stretches your professional growth
  • A clinician’s commitment to lifelong learning must take into account the ever-changing world and environment we live in. Being a ‘life-long student’ calls for an intrinsic, voluntary desire to creatively and intentionally learn. Engaging in innovative, enriching opportunities is proven to increase self-reflection, boost creativity, reduce burnout and increase adaptability to change. Join with our program as we strive to create an environment for personal growth from parent, to student, to therapist. 

What We Do, What You Do
  • Rooted Life Adventure’s role is to create an environment for students to thrive by disconnecting from societal pressures to connect with their inner-self. The Wellness Director, a licensed therapist, will be guiding the students through a tailored psychoeducational curriculum challenging their core beliefs and values and providing opportunities to build their self-concept and social skills. This program also uses intentional adventure to challenge students and empower them to engage in personal growth. Rooted Life Adventures does not offer any clinical services. Instead, it provides psychoeducation for mental health and wellness and defers to the at-home therapist to focus on clinical processing. Families spend dedicated time finding the right therapy fit for their child. We wants to honor and build on that foundation. The therapist will continue therapeutic processing once a week with their client and engage in their ongoing treatment plan while they are in the program. The Wellness Director and therapist will engage in ongoing consultation and collaboration to provide the best outcomes for each specific student.
