Trails Momentum, an outdoor and adventure-based program for young adults ages 18-25, is excited to announce that their clinical team is growing. Two new wilderness therapists, Ryan Ebersberger, MSW and Joe Fuller, LCSW, have joined the Trails Momentum team this summer.
Both Ebersberger and Fuller come from a background rooted in Wilderness Therapy and have worked alongside clients to develop strong relationships based on connection, trust and collaboration.
Ryan Ebersberger has worked with youth and families for over a decade in a variety of settings across the country, including therapeutic boarding schools, direct care social work and Wilderness Therapy. He received his Master’s of Social Work from Western New Mexico University.
“I am drawn to helping young adults because I enjoy making a positive impact on young people's lives while seeing the profound changes that occur as they discover their true potential,” says Ebersberger. “When a client is able to take their power and put it into constructiveness instead of destructiveness, the seed of change begins to grow and that spreads to everyone around them.”
Ebersberger takes a trauma-informed approach and has been trained in Brainspotting, HeartMath, and Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga.
Joe Fuller’s approach stems from working with teens and young adults through a variety of challenges including depression, anxiety, learning differences, addiction, relationship challenges, and life transitions through Wilderness Therapy, Young Adult Transitional Programming, Restorative Practices and Community Mental Health.
Fuller received his Master’s in Social Work from the University of Vermont where he adopted an integrative approach inspired by strength-based, narrative therapy, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, collaborative-relational and client-centered methods.
“Rather than following a one-size-fits-all approach, I believe that it is important to co-create a healthy therapeutic relationship with every student,” comments Fuller. “This helps maintain a safe, non-judgemental space where they feel empowered to take a more active role in navigating their strengths, challenges, needs, direction, goals, and relationships. In doing so, students feel more at ease opening up by having the freedom to move beyond focusing on problem behaviors to think about other themes in their lives.”
