Dagney is originally from South Carolina.  She attended college in the mountains of NC at Appalachian State University.  There she completed a degree in Outdoor Education along with a minor in Sociology.  Dagney traveled to Utah in 2005 to explore the potential mental health benefits that wilderness offers.

Dagney has been fortunate enough to work in the many realms of the mental health field including her start as a wilderness therapy field staff and mentor, then worked as a house parent at a therapeutic boarding school, and then went back to wilderness and started her work with family services.

She is a certified Parent Coach and earned her Master’s degree as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor. She later worked at a residential program for young adults and once again, found herself drawn back to wilderness helping families. Dagney has a strong background in evidence-based practices and family systems. She believes in the power of connection and relationship to self and others as a venue for healing and forward movement. Dagney finds that being active keeps her centered and encourages her clients to do the same.
