Ryan Hawks grew up in Bountiful, Utah. He met his wife while finishing up my degree in Recreation Therapy at BYU. Right out of school, he was hired to work as a recreation therapist at ScenicView Academy, a residential school for young adults with autism in North Provo, where he has been for the past ten years. Ryan received a masters degree in Mental Health Counseling and interned at Wasatch Mental Health, and also did some part time work with LDS Family Services. During his time at ScenicView, Ryan was always involved with the Family Support committee, and felt very strongly that the students he was working with did better when their family was well connected to them. Ryan also worked as a Family Outreach Coordinator, develop a program around developing social skills and presented at national therapeutic conferences while at Scenic View. Ryan has extensive experience working with trauma, family systems, mood disorders, and borderline personality disorder.
