Paula L. Riggs has spent over 20 years working with at-risk youth and families in multiple environments. She is an experienced Admissions Counselor and Director in therapeutic middle schools, high schools, young adult treatment facilities, and Outdoor Wilderness programs.

Paula’s patience and true concern stem from real-life experience identifying and articulating the specific therapeutic needs of struggling youth and adults. Her passion is working with families in crisis, directly with parents, adolescents, and young adults, helping them heal their lives. Paula’s return is reuniting families and restoring health and abundance to their lives. She describes her work as living in a life raft, pulling families in, and rowing safely to the appropriate shore.

Paula is the proud mother of two grown boys, one in the Coast Guard and the other an IT support supervisor. Anytime she gets to spend with them is cherished. She spends her free time hiking or riding her horses with friends and family, always with a phone strapped to the saddle, never too busy for a family in need.
