Elements Wilderness Program is proud to welcome Eric Fawson, LCSW to the team.
Effective immediately, Eric Fawson is serving as primary therapist for a group of adolescent boys. Eric has been a therapist since 2005, first in residential and therapeutic boarding school settings and for many years as a wilderness therapist and Clinical Director. Eric is well known for his expertise in attachment and trauma, and he frequently sees the mood disorders, substance abuse, and other addictive behaviors that often accompany those core issues. He was adopted at birth along with his younger brother, and he is also an adoptive parent. This aspect of his life informs his work within adoption and attachment and gives his practice a solid grounding in the realities of an adoptive family.
“We are excited for all he will bring to the table with his varied expertise and his great personality,” shared Dr. Neal Christensen, Clinical Director and Co-owner. “We believe he will add great depth to our excellent clinical team.”
