Coaching Service

STLF Coaching Service

Sky’s the Limit Fund (STLF) offers two comprehensive coaching services to support the youth, young adult and family post wilderness therapy.

Family Coaching Service: Offered to clinically approved families to help the youth and family with the transition from wilderness therapy back into the home. The service is led by three trained STLF Family Coaches who have years of experience in wilderness therapy, transitional support care, and traditional therapeutic care.

Young Adult Coaching Service: Offered to clinically approved young adults to help with the transition from wilderness therapy back to the home or to an independent living environment. The young adult’s family may receive support through the Family Coaching Service. This allows for the young adult and the parent(s)/legal guardian(s) to each have their own coach. The Young Adult Coaching Service is led by Mackenzie Keefe who has years of experience working with teens and young adults. Please click on her image to view her bio on our website.

The Coaching Service includes:

  • 12 weeks of support with your Coach
  • Curriculum packet of psycho-education and assignments to help integrate learning
  • Weekly phone calls with your Coach
  • Collaboration with past and current mental health professionals
  • Support in creating a home care team for you and your family

Our hands-on approach helps guide the young adult towards a healthier, functioning life and the family towards a healthier, functioning family system by supporting and expanding on the new skills acquired during wilderness therapy.

STLF young adults and families receive the Coaching Service free of charge. This service is also offered to non-STLF young adults and families for a reasonable fee. For more information or to apply, please contact grants@stlfgives.org.

Young Adult Coach

“I can’t thank STLF enough for the family coaching we received. It was, by far, the most beneficial part of our emotional roller coaster we had been on since we sent our daughter away to a wilderness program. Our family coach was so wonderful to us. Her guidance was spot on and without her I don’t think we would have made the changes that were so important for our daughter’s success moving forward. Our coach gave us the necessary tools to change the dynamics of our household; she made us realize our weaknesses in our parenting skills and helped us perfect them in a very caring way. Knowing she was there in times of question was extremely beneficial. I just can’t say enough about what you have done for our family!”
