"As a private practice therapist who values wilderness therapy, I highly recommend attending a Legacy cityscape adventure as a way of understanding the unique benefits of experience-based interventions" - Dr. Mathew Poinsett
Matt is a Michigan native that has spent most of his adult life working toward understanding the complex interaction between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Outside of his clinical work he as taught a variety of college-level psychology courses, presented workshops at national conferences, and teamed with a private consulting firm aiming to improve employee performance. Matt earned his Ph.d. in clinical psychology from Eastern Michigan University. After working in wilderness programs, inpatient facilities, partial-hospitalization units, and university counseling centers, Dr. Poinsett established a private practice where he provides outpatient psychotherapy as well as offering professional development services for individuals and teams.

The research supports taking treatment outside. www.obhcenter.org/projects
New studies and research continue to reveal the psychological benefits of nature, wilderness, and adventure experiences. The research continues to reveal that the closer we are to nature, the more we heal, rejuvenate, and connect to inspiration as well as our potential. We want to make sure the professionals we work with across the country can support their current clientele as well as our program graduates returning to cities across the country, in finding and connecting with meaningful nature experiences and adventures in a city near you.
