Cheltsea’s journey in the mental health industry began 18 years ago as a field guide for a wilderness therapy program in southern Utah. She has held several positions in three different youth programs since then. Her goal is to continue as a therapist after she completes her master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. As a mother of two, Cheltsea enjoys talking to parents and helping them feel confident in their decision to choose the right program for their child. She has a passion for the outdoors and believes in the power of connecting to the natural world. That’s what she loves about Kokua Recovery. The adventures at Kokua give youth a chance to experience nature in an exciting way and learn from what it has to offer. Cheltsea’s own life adventures include mtn. biking, kayaking, rock climbing, primitive living skills and dancing.
