Equinox RTC, a residential treatment center for adolescents ages 14-18 located outside of Asheville, NC, is excited to announce that Sally Burleson will be joining the clinical team as primary therapist.
Kyle Gillett, Executive Director and Foundation Partner of Equinox RTC, states, “Sally embodies just what anyone would look for in a new teammate – she is an experienced therapist and leader, on top of being an incredible person. And she is a perfect fit for our team.”
Sally has provided clinical services for over 25 years in many different settings. Her love of helping individuals and families comes through in the clinical expertise she provides to students and families. Sally spent the last seven years at Four Circles where she provided clinical supervision, facilitated the Rites of Passage Vision quest experience, developed and implemented the 5th Circle extended care program, facilitated the monthly 3-day family seminar and led the clinical team.
As Dave Archer, Clinical Director at Equinox RTC comments, “We are so excited to have Sally join our team. She brings a wide range of experience, knowledge, and kindness in a relational approach that will allow the families we work with to be challenged and move towards the healing they seek. We feel very fortunate to have her here at Equinox.”
Additionally, Sally fell in love with experiential therapy 15 years ago when she began working at SUWS of the Carolinas. Wilderness Therapy gave her the opportunity to be creative and explore new and different ways to reach people therapeutically. She really thrived on being able to utilize her creativity to meet an individual where they were and support them in their own change process. Since then she has utilized these skills at Phoenix Outdoor a therapeutic wilderness program and Stone Mountain School a therapeutic boarding school.
Sally’s other passion is her family, being a wife and mother is “the best part.” When not at work, Sally is attending her son’s sports, cooking or loving on the family dog named Bear.
