Ryan Coley has been working at Aspiro Wilderness Adventure therapy for seven years. He has played a vital role in the ongoing innovation of Aspiro‘s experiential, adventure-based, wilderness treatment model. In collaboration with Associate Clinical Director, Dr. Carl Smoot, Ryan’s primary objective has been to provide leadership, support, and case management to Aspiro’s dynamic clinical team with a focus on long-term sustainability. “Ryan will always go out of his way to help another person. He genuinely cares about his students, and that level of commitment is contagious. As Aspiro’s Clinical Director, Ryan enriches a team of therapists who are uniquely invested in supporting each other while providing a high level of care to our clients,” says Dr. Smoot.
Coley is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Utah and specializing in the treatment of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, attachment issues, self-harm, and identity issues in adolescents and young adults. His experience and expertise offer strong leadership and treatment collaboration to Aspiro’s team of therapists.
“I feel so privileged to lead and serve along side of such a wonderful group of therapists at Aspiro. We’ve created a clinical model where we combine wilderness, high adventure activities, and talk therapy to produce a rich classroom for our students. Our clinical team is incredible. They’re diverse, they’re dedicated, they practice proven modalities, and they care.”
With treatment-specific programs located in Utah and Costa Rica, Aspiro’s mission is to be the most clinically-advanced outdoor behavioral health program in the world; providing safe, dynamic, highly effective treatment modalities that are backed by empirically-based research. Aspiro is a short-term Wilderness Adventure Therapy program serving adolescents ages 13-17 and young adults ages 18-28 with varying degrees of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.
