In 2018, Adam made a pivot from art to the outdoor industry to begin developing his career as an instructor in adventure sports like Rock Climbing and Alpine Skiing. After a few years of working closely with hundreds of clients, he recognized a commonality in his clients – they had all found some resolve in their outdoor activities as a means to work through difficult, and oftentimes, very traumatic experiences from the past. He deepened his approach by spending long periods of time in the wilderness to understand the benefits of the natural world in relation to mental and physical health. This led him down a path to become a nationally-registered Wilderness First Responder. He took it a step further by successfully completing his master certification as a Health and Wellness Coach to advise and coach clients with chronic and acute illness, maladaptive behavior, puberty, and major life changes by developing detailed patient assessments, meal plans, movement analysis, and proven talk therapy modalities under the guise of a whole body approach.

In the same year, he was awarded a three-year scholarship to study and research trauma via the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute founded by Dr. Peter Levine – a leader in trauma therapy worldwide that has worked closely with an array of prominent therapists like Dr. Gabor Maté and Dr. Richard Schwartz, responsible for Internal Family Systems Therapy.

He is on path to receive his BA in Neuroscience with an open application to continue his education with a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of Denver. Adam has worked as a private coach, Behavioral Health Therapist in Inpatient Psych Units, teaches private ski lessons throughout the Rocky Mountains, and loves spending my down time with his wife and dog Stella kayaking, climbing, and hiking.
