Open Sky is thrilled to announce the addition of Dr. Coady Schueler to the team. Dr. Schueler has nearly thirty years of experience in the field and is widely known and respected for her work with adolescent girls.
Dr. Schueler brings vast clinical experience to Open Sky, including an extensive background in wilderness therapy, therapeutic boarding schools, mental health facilities, private practice, and psychological testing.
Dr. Schueler’s passion and expertise lie in working with adolescent girls that are well-defended, retractive, and tend towards embodying their emotions rather than acting out. Her ability to make genuine and empathetic emotional connections with her students stands out amongst her many special qualities as a clinician. As a parent, Dr. Schueler brings humility and compassion to her work with families, and her gentle, yet straightforward approach is appreciated by all.
After earning a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch New England Graduate School, Dr. Schueler went on to pursue a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology. The topic of her dissertation explored the impact sexual abuse has on the way adolescent females conceptualize emotional intimacy.
“Coady’s passion for collaboration, family work, and wilderness are just a few of the reasons she is a perfect match for Open Sky’s holistic, community-centered model,” says Emily Fernandes, Open Sky Executive Director. “We couldn’t be more thrilled for Coady to join the Open Sky team!”
Dr. Schueler is originally from the east coast, and prior to moving to Durango, she called Utah home for over 25 years. When she’s not working, she enjoys telemark skiing, mountain biking, and adventuring with her friends, her dogs, and of course, her son, Ketch.
