Trails Momentum, an outdoor adventure-based therapy program for young adults ages 18-25, is excited to announce Jacob Thomason, LPC as their new Clinical Director. Prior to moving into his new role as Clinical Director, Jacob helped provide support to families and young adults as the Parent and Family Services Specialist at Trails Momentum and Trails Carolina. With over a decade of experience working in wilderness therapy and transitional programs, Jacob has held leadership roles in clinical and family programming throughout his career.
In his tenure, he has specialized in helping young people struggling with attachment/adoption issues and family dynamics. Jacob is also trained in brainspotting, a treatment method designed to help people access, process, and overcome trauma, negative emotions, and pain.
As Clinical Director of Trails Momentum, Jacob will act as supervisor and oversee the training and development of the clinical team. He will also be working with young adults directly, taking on a caseload of students. Over the course of his career, Jacob has spent several years working with young adults in a number of therapeutic settings.
“A major focus for me is to help strengthen and enhance the clinical aspects of the curriculum here at Momentum,” comments Jacob. “Another focal point will be helping support families throughout the healing process. My experience as a family therapist will help bolster the already amazing clinical work we do with families.”
“I’m very excited to work with the young adult population at Trails Momentum,” says Jacob. “I will be helping young people find what they are passionate about, whether that’s going back to school or seeking other ways to gain independence. The culture and community here is really empowering for young adults who are ready to begin taking more ownership in their lives. I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
