Can you connect to a loved one without sharing your feelings? Feelings: Don’t Keep Them to Yourself
// Sharing your feelings, thoughts, and needs is hard, especially if you have codependent traits. One of the core features of codependency is that you never developed a strong sense of self – who you are, what you think, feel, believe,...

Great article +WinGate Wilderness Therapy! My parents did not teach us to express our feelings as children. We were to suck it up, be quiet, and move on. Sharing your feelings does help you connect with people you love.

I love Wingate Wilderness Therapy! They truly care about their students and have incredible therapists. They make sure the kids are well taken care of and do a great job at creating an environment where the students feel safe and can thrive and heal. Keep up the good work Wingate!

How do I assign stars to the people that saved my daughter's life? I can't even begin to think about where my daughter would be without Wingate. They are the most caring and advanced program and therapuetic model I have ever experienced. My daughter struggled with depression, PTSD and severe drug addiction. She ran away from home and was living on the streets at 16 years old. After a few short term stays in a locked mental health facility we knew she needed something else. We also knew she was a runner and feared her running away from anywhere we sent her. That's what turned us towards wilderness therapy. We also knew she needed to be stripped of all distractions so that she could finally work on herself. That is exactly what we found at Wingate. When she arrived at the Wingate office in the cold January snow she was angry, bitter, convinced she was going to try to run and refusing to go out into the field. Walt was there with her and talked to her and cried with her until she decided to go out, she still talks about those first hours in the office with him. That interaction was just the beginning of staff showing my daughter just how valuable she was. Her therapist Erin was incredible and was able to work through trauma with my daughter the way no one else had been able to. She used somatic trauma therapy and also gave my daughter many books to read to understand herself and how her brain functioned. She had an addiction therapist and she studied NA and eventually helped lead NA groups. The most unique part of Wingate is the way these kids are treated, they eat, hike and live with their staff. The staff live just as they do. Nature creates the rules, there is no level system, everything has a natural consequence. They are also skilled in handling run risk kids. If you are reading this you are likely where I was just 11 months ago, desperate to find help for my child. There are so many places on the Internet and I just didn't know where to turn and who to believe. Shayne reached out to me and I could tell above all else he wanted to help me and my daughter. I pushed all fear aside and decided to do what I had to do and I have never been more grateful of a decision I have made. My daughter was at Wingate for several months and is now in a therapuetic boarding school and will likely be home soon. I just got back from visiting her and she wanted to go back to visit everyone at Wingate- so we did! My daughter is counting down the months til she turns 18 so that she can work as a field staff. If you are desperate for help and ready to experience genuine care and therapy like no other treatment program, choose Wingate! Thank you Wingate- Shayne, Sheri, Walt, Erin and so many others for saving my daughter's life and showing us that there is hope!

I would recommend this program to anyone. I was so nervous to send my son but it ended up being a fantastic experience for him and the entire family. Every single therapist there is very well trained in dealing with all types of teens and their various issues and traumas. My son did very well there and looks back at his experience with great fondness. He was there in the middle of winter when it was dark and cold and was even there through Christmas but he still loved it. He is now at a therapeutic boarding school and is doing well. I think wingate will always be a part of him.

My daughter has been there almost 8 weeks. I get a weekly call from her therapist. I don't get mail from her as she still doesn't have positive feelings for me. I'm going to see her this weekend. So far, I only get what her therapist shares which is 'slow progress'. Part of the process of Wingate is self awareness and insight. Some kids get there sooner than others. 85% of kids go on to "Aftercare" vs return home. These kids require an ED Consultant and a Psychological testing…both are $2-6K. My kid had the psych review but the therapist won't share it with me till after the visit… It's hard to "trust the process"…I'm not sure I do fully as I find I'm conflicted with their advice and keeping me at a distance from information about my child…. She doesn't want me to be 'unduly influenced prior to my visit with her…however I would prefer to know. Turning over custody to this program relinquishes your involvement with your child significantly…be aware of that! I will let you know more when I return next week!

Wingate is top-notch when it comes to helping young people and their families. They have an amazing program that has produced years of successful outcomes, and employ some of the most caring and compassionate staff in the field. Their alliance-based model is exceptional, and uniquely effective as compared to other models based on levels or degradation. They genuinely care about reuniting families and have established one of the best reputations in this field. I would highly recommend them to families with whom I work.
