Wingate Wilderness Therapy is happy to announce a 13 year work anniversary for Scott Hess and Erin Grover. Both therapists have played crucial roles in the development and growth of Wingate since its inception in 2008. In the Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare field a 13 year tenure at one program is nearly unheard of.
Erin Grover, MSW, LCSW, entered the field as a field staff working her way up to field director before earning her Masters of Social Work from the University of Utah. Erin has also completed a three-year certification in Somatic Experiencing (helping clients renegotiate trauma) and is a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP). Years in the wilderness setting have given Erin the trust in the power of nature to help enable meaningful change.
Scott Hess, LMFT, has been working with families and students in a therapist role since 1996. Prior to Wingate Scott worked in both residential and wilderness settings. Scott focuses heavily on family systems in order to help create lasting change for both the student and the family. With 25 years of experience Scott offers families a deep commitment to building trust that will enable him to invite students to find themselves.
Wingate is proud of the work and continued dedication both Erin and Scott have offered to families over the years. Both Scott and Erin continue to carry out the foundational philosophical values established by them and the core team of founders that enable true lasting change. In an ever changing field, Erin and Scott have brought consistency and reliability to Wingates clinical team.
