Dragonfly Transitions is excited to welcome back Devon Priem, MSW, LCSW and Kenny Benson. Devon Priem, MSW, LCSW returned to Dragonfly Transitions as a primary therapist, and Kenny Benson has returned to the team as the front office manager. Devon and Kenny started Dragonfly’s annual international service trip to Cambodia six years ago.
Devon previously worked at Dragonfly for 5 years as a therapist. She brings her skills in the areas of trauma, substance abuse, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), identity, Cognitive Behaviorial Therapy (CBT), and family systems. Her knowledge of Dragonfly philosophy and experience working in wilderness and residential settings is invaluable. She is adept at building rapport while also challenging her students and families to a deep level of therapeutic work.
Kenny has worn many hats over the years including managing our campus coffee shop, A Leap of Taste, the adventures coordinator, and also as a mentor. His previous experience includes working in wilderness therapy and therapeutic boarding schools. Prior to returning to Dragonfly Transitions, they took a year to travel with their 2-year old daughter though Mexico and Central America.
Dragonfly Transitions serves young adults 18 -30 in three locations in Southern Oregon – Klamath Falls, Ashland, and the Homestead (for men, just south of Klamath). Students learn life skills and work to transition into a healthy young adult life with independence, autonomy, integrity and sustainability. Dragonfly provides opportunities for real world experience in a stable, supportive environment where students can flourish.
