With new and refreshed insight, Liz Deardorff, LCSW, is rejoining New Vision Wilderness-Bend as Director of Young Adult Programming. New Vision was able to witness their own, Liz Deardorff, go on a growth and self-care experience this winter. Liz embarked on her own personal journey to Thailand as a growth and renewal experience. With time for reflection and healing, New Vision Wilderness welcomes Liz back to her passion for wilderness therapy.
At New Vision Wilderness, growth is one of our core values - a value that is encouraged with each employee and student. Liz Deardorff has been with New Vision for 9 years and has been involved in many therapeutic roles. These therapeutic roles encompass responsibility of being a holder of pain, suffering, stress and discomfort. Therapists are not immune to pain. It is only natural that the pain and anguish heard on a daily basis affects the human spirit. Therefore, mental health providers need to be brave. Providers need to step into humility, honesty and a self-reflective process. Liz states, “My time away was exactly what I needed. The experience was grounding, spiritual, heart-warming and eye opening. It allowed me to re-connect with my purpose and passions.”
Liz explained that her own personal journey gives inspiration to help young adults with addictions, pain, and traumatic life experiences. Liz is able to meet young adults with empathy and expose them to the peaceful healing power of nature. Liz is stepping into this role returning to her passion since the beginning of our Oregon young adult programming at New Vision Wilderness. Liz states “I am committed to ensuring NVW is a leader in addressing addictions, loneliness and other suffering that we find infesting our young people today.” Drew Hornbeck and Steve Sawyer, Founders of New Vision Wilderness, want to congratulate Liz on her journey and are excited to see her ignite her passion for healing young adults.
