Therapy

A Unique and Adaptive Approach

As an alternative to traditional counseling,  Beth Venable, MS, LPCi is committed to offering adventure therapy services as a way to provide clients with relevant mental health counseling focused on resolving primary concerns, increasing skills, deepening meaningful understanding, and creating a space for authentic healing to occur. Adventure therapy is based in outdoor and experiential education. Both indoor and outdoor activities are available and are safely structured to encourage personal growth and development. Gass, Gillis, & Russell (2012) provide the most commonly agreed upon definition in the field, “The prescriptive use of adventure experiences provided by mental health professionals often in natural settings that kinesthetically engage clients on cognitive, affective, and behavioral levels.”
