Solstice East, a residential treatment center for teen girls ages 14-17, is thrilled to announce that they have added Kristin Adams in the role of primary therapist, to the clinical team.
Kristin Adams is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who began her social work journey in child protective services in Kentucky before moving to Utah to live on the trail as a wilderness therapy instructor. These experiences inspired her to pursue a master's in clinical social work from the University of Utah.
For over 10 years, Kristin has served individuals and families in residential, wilderness, and outpatient settings. Her areas of expertise include attachment, family systems, personality development, depression/anxiety, and issues with identity, body image, and self-esteem. She believes that it is a privilege to witness the transformation of the girls she works with, as they are challenged to face their insecurity and fear head-on.
“I am excited about working at Solstice East, as I am passionate about female empowerment, particularly when working with teen girls. My approach involves exploring the factors that have contributed to the high expectations many girls have for themselves and to help individuals realize their inner strength and voice,” describes Kristin.
At Solstice East, primary therapists meet with a comprehensive treatment team weekly to evaluate each student’s individualized treatment plan, using a holistic approach to help teen girls heal their minds, bodies, and spirits and build confidence.
