HealingQuest Leadership offers Brief Family Integration Programs, which combine physical activity, individual and family therapy, mindfulness practices, creative expression, and nutrition to holistically treat the family system. By setting the program in supportive resort environments, the stresses on family members are managed and focused on the family work. Programs are custom in location, accommodations, activities, and length, ranging from 4 to 7 days.

During HealingQuest's Leadership Team, the team is lead by expert therapists experienced in integrating the wilderness into therapeutic work for individuals and families. Katie Asmus, MA, LPC, Clinical Supervisor, is a faculty member of the Wilderness Therapy program at Naropa University. Jody Radtke, MA, LPC, Clinical Director, has directed the programs of the Women's Wilderness Institute in Boulder, CO, for five years. Amy Winchester, MA, LPC-I, Grief and Loss Specialist, is a counselor with HospiceCare of Boulder & Broomfield Counties. Andrew Rose, MA, LPC-I, Program Director, Trauma Specialist, is a certificated EMDR practitioner with a private practice in Boulder, and leads Ski and Wilderness EMDR intensives.

The year-round Ski Therapy program includes mindfulness practice, breakfast, family therapy, skiing and ski therapy, down time, dinner, and a second therapy session. During the program the family learns about emotional regulation, nonviolent communication, and dynamics of family systems. The family also practices healthy 'family time'.
