Steven R

Group Lead

Steven was born and raised just outside New York City, which is oddly enough where he found his love for rock climbing. His passion for climbing led him to SUNY Plattsburgh in the Adirondack Mountains. After completing his degree in pyschology, he decided to teach English in South Korea and travel throughout Asia and Europe. When Steven returned to the U.S., he worked in a residential treatment center where he found trauma to be a regular occurrence in his clients' pasts. This led Steven to Tel Aviv, Israel where he got a Masters in Crisis and Trauma Intervention. The outdoors and therapeutic work have always been a passion of Steven's, and thankfully wilderness therapy allows him to combine these passions.
