Therapeutic Offerings​


Skyterra Young Adult is a Wellness Program that uses a five-pillar approach to guide guests toward a more positive relationship with themselves. We believe that our therapeutic pillar of Self-Care and Stress Management is a key factor in a young adult’s journey of finding self-worth and discovering who they want to become. We empower our guests, ages 18 to 29, to thrive in their independence by working on a developing consistent routine, exploring their mental health, building relationships and experiencing adventure.

Our team of licensed mental health clinicians work with young adults who are experiencing social, emotional or behavioral health challenges, including: interpersonal conflict, anxiety, depression, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and disordered eating behaviors. Guests practice prioritizing mental health as they participate in 90 minutes of individual therapy and three group therapy sessions on a weekly basis. 

Our clinical approach is informed by: 

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Trauma-Informed Care
  • Family Systems Theory 
  • Mindfulness
  • Adventure Counseling
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Brief Solution Focused Therapy
  • Gradual Exposure Therapy
  • Self Compassion.

Guests experience personal growth within the structure, routine and emotional safety of our wellness community. During their stay, guests engage in:

  • Structured activities with therapeutic intention
  • In-the-moment feedback
  • Corrective experiences or events that challenge one’s fear or expectations and lead to new outcomes and learning
  • Opportunities to change natural responses in the moment, challenging maladaptive core beliefs
  • Processing past behavior, thoughts, experiences providing opportunities to practice new patterns of behavior
  • Communication and conflict resolution skill development
  • Challenge by Choice
  • Increasing distress tolerance
  • Opportunities to learn and practice strategies for emotional regulation 
  • Recreational and adventure activities to challenge themselves and increase resilience.

Our clinical team also works with families to address family dynamics during weekly family therapy calls. Families come together to build credibility within their relationships and solidify strategies to support the therapeutic and mental health improvements the guest makes during their stay. Parents learn skills and strategies to parent a young adult with social, emotional or behavioral health challenges.
