Elements Wilderness Program Announces Parent Support
Elements Wilderness Program is proud to announce that Karen Davis has joined the team as a key member of its Family Department. “At Elements we know that family engagement and support are vital not just in the treatment process, but to the outcomes of our individual clients,” said Dr. Neal Christensen, Clinical Director and Co-owner. “We are proud of our Family Program’s emphasis on in-person work at Elements, and we see it as a perfect complement to have Karen stepping in to directly serve each of our families, in both a support and educational capacity. We are truly excited to have her on the team providing these additional points of contact over the course of their child’s experience at Elements.”
Ms. Davis is an attorney by trade whose career branched out into Therapeutic and Educational Consulting after experiencing the treatment process firsthand, as a parent of a child in treatment. She is now supporting and challenging Elements parents to fully engage in the treatment process for their own personal growth and to help their children get the most out of treatment. Karen will be hosting parent seminars and providing direct calls to parents throughout the process of their child’s program.
“I am excited to be a part of the life-changing work of the Elements team, and I am honored to serve each Elements family throughout their wilderness journey. I know the difference it makes when parents actively participate in their child’s treatment process. I want each family to feel supported and encouraged to focus on their own work and self-care while their son is at Elements.”
Karen is serving all families who enrolled after January 1st. If you would like to speak with Elements about its work with clients and their families please contact Kate Lierd, Admissions Director, at 866.542.2252.
