Ryan is originally from the seacoast area of New Hampshire, where she learned to love the outdoors and all that New England has to offer. Hiking in the white mountains, surfing at Rye beach, and skiing at Sunday River are some of her most cherished memories. She credits these experiences to her interest in the connection between mental health and outdoor experiences. Ryan has a Bachelor’s of Arts in Psychology from the University of New Hampshire and since then has worked with adolescents and young adults in a variety of settings including wilderness family therapy programs and high school special services departments. At Cornerstones, Ryan aspires to support her clients with curiosity and care as well as outdoor engagement opportunities. Outside of work, Ryan enjoys traveling, backpacking, skiing, and enjoying Portland’s amazing restaurant and music scene.
