blueFire Wilderness Therapy, a wilderness program for teens ages 11-17, is excited to welcome Dr. Paul Goddard as a Primary Therapist on their clinical team. Beginning on May 27, Dr. Goddard will be working with the younger girls group at blueFire, clients ages 11-15.
Dr. Goddard has worked with adolescents in therapeutic settings for decades. After earning his Ph.D in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Child and Family from the University of Missouri - Columbia, he has worked as a wilderness therapist where he learned to further integrate the healing power of nature with psychology.
As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (Utah and NY), he subsequently worked as a testing psychologist, clinical director and executive director for some of the nation’s foremost adolescent treatment programs. He has since returned to positions working directly with young people as a wilderness therapist.
“Dr. Goddard’s ability to balance genuine nurturance with personal accountability has earned him the reputation of being a ‘Giant Teddy Bear’ among his clients,” says Kathy Rex, CTRS, Executive Director and Co-Founder of blueFire Wilderness. “Building trust with treatment resistant young women, who sense his genuine care and concern balanced with his belief in their ability to face their ‘monsters’ and heal, is Dr. Goddard’s specialty. We are thrilled for him to join our team.”
His other clinical specialties include anxiety, depression, learning disabilities, adoption & attachment issues, trauma and abuse, emotional dysregulation, and family systems.
