Our work involves therapy, family coaching and Adventure trips. We specialize in working with individuals (ages 13 to 25) and their families.
We draw from our extensive experience… to create change… to help people connect with themselves and with nature. We work with clients to help them achieve a deeper self-awareness and sense of wellbeing.
We provide a dynamic approach to meeting youth and their families with a broad base of counseling modalities that serve to expand our client’s connection to resources within their family, their community, and within themselves.

Our Adventure Trips have been held in the Cascade Mountain region, San Juan Islands, Sierra Nevadas, and the Rocky Mountains. Throughout our years of experience we have found that connecting with nature both in depth and on an ongoing basis has provided a powerful healing experience for the individuals and families participating.
Our Mission is to cultivate Empowerment, Sustainability, and Connection with Self and Nature through Education, Stewardship,and Adventure.
Our Values revolve around:
Restorative Adventures facilitates life changing experiences in a safe environment to stimulate both physical and emotional growth. By confronting challenges by choice, participants are provided an opportunity to safely push their limits in a process that encourages confidence, character development, and self-connection.
Restorative Adventures stimulates the curiosity that is deeply innate to every individual, through hands on learning and individualized guidance in a wilderness classroom environment. With a curriculum focused on natural history, ecosystems, sustainability, and a combination of communication and leadership guidance, we provide the tools needed to find oneself and unlock a healthy relationship with the world.
Service learning projects strengthen connections with the community, environment, and self. The experience of giving is empowering and deepens individual integrity. Through service projects in wild local places, Restorative Adventures builds community, encourages nature conservation, and teaches the direct correlation between the action and impact of choice.
STEWARDSHIP / SERVICE
What is the extinction of the condor to a child who has never known a wren? Through service learning projects we deepen our connection to community, environment, and self. The experience of giving back through the act of service empowers us and deepens our integrity. At Restorative Adventures we approach service in the spirit of collaboration, sharing, learning, and vulnerability. While we experience these ecosystems, we will have the opportunity to offer our time & service to the land.
Through our service projects we build community, encourage nature conservation, experience the impact of our choices, and create responsible explorers.
