Live and Learn

Many professionals teach, guide and counsel based on their theoretical study and degree. Live and Learn operates from a different angle, EXPERIENCE. Not only have we studied the intricacies of communication and the Wilderness process, but we have lived the experience first hand with a child. You will be supported through your family process from an advocate who has not only has the knowledge through books and a degree, but has personally been through the process.

Sky’s the Limit Fund

Founded in 2010, Sky’s the Limit Fund is a Milpitas based non-profit organization whose mission is supporting families of youth in-crisis through wilderness therapy programs. Our vision is for youth to achieve their full potential as healthy and valued members of society. Today’s youth and young adults are faced with an epidemic that does not discriminate based on identity or socioeconomics. Problems including, but not limited to, substance abuse, mental health and social difficulties continue to plague young people at alarming rates.  Left untreated, these issues will ultimately have lifelong implications on a person’s life.  Wilderness treatment programs provide effective and personalized therapeutic care, achieving high-impact and long-lasting improvement.  You can imagine how difficult it is for financially challenged families in crisis to get a child the treatment needed.  STLF helps to alleviate that burden by offering financial assistance and other support to families in need.

Sonya Rodriguez

Sonya is currently finishing her PhD. Her dissertation topic is around family therapy while adolescents are in treatment. Her second main emphasis is working with Homeward Bound as a transition coach.

I love working with families who have adolescents coming out of wilderness. I’ve witnessed incredible family healing and new ways of being together. My role is to give parents hope, help them not parenting out of fear, and remind all family members of the incredible skills they learned while their loved one was in wilderness/treatment.

I have Emotionally Focused Family Therapy training (EFT) and Attachment Based family therapy (ABFT). I am becoming EMDR trained as well. I also do crisis work with the Red Cross and a few other local organizations in the Dallas Ft Worth metroplex.
