After Embrace, Libby feels strong, confident
Embrace nourished Margaret's body, mind and soul
“When I came to Skyterra I honestly had zero expectations. My mom made all the phone calls and I just showed up. I lost the love of my life. I wanted to live but I didn’t know how. I said I would give Skyterra a chance, but would leave if I didn’t like it. I stayed for 28 days.
My first day, [Embrace Executive Director] Greg asked me what I wanted out of the Embrace experience and most importantly he asked me what I needed.
Every day he asked me: What do you need right now Margaret?
The question rattled me every time. With the weight of the past and the responsibilities of the future, how could I think about me?
I’ve been in programs before, but this concept is unique to the Embrace program. How can I nourish myself, body and soul? Who do I want to be? How can I achieve that? How do I feel gratitude for every day, good and bad?
I’m not going to lie and say that I’m 100 percent fixed because that will never happen. However I’ve started the process of gluing myself back together. I have a vision for my future and I have the tools to achieve that.
Even under tragic circumstances, I’m grateful for my time at Skyterra. I’m grateful for every day now. I will embrace myself, the ones I love, and most importantly I will embrace life.
How to get started:

Here's how to do it:
You deserve to feel confident
What is Embrace?
Embrace is a holistic wellness program designed to help young adults become the heroes of their stories. Embrace challenges the ways in which young women have been held back from opportunity and achievement as a result of not knowing how to apply an active role in their lives.
Embrace helps women ages 18-29 increase their confidence in and understanding of all areas of wellness, and arms them with a long-term commitment to themselves. The long-term outcome is that students change their life forever by joining Embrace.
As an Embrace student, you'll establish intention and purpose in independence through private therapy and coaching, structured classes, and hands-on integration of healthy life skills.
Your future is our mission.
Embrace is a specialized program for young women that focuses on total body, mind and lifestyle. We want our young women to move well, eat nourishing foods, and embrace adulthood with a healthy mind, body and spirit. Embrace students focus on improving health, and on learning techniques and strategies to improve their quality of life for the long run.
Our view of health and wellness emphasizes managing stress, consistent movement, and eating balanced meals, plus plenty of nature and adventure. As an Embrace student, you'll cultivate resiliency by learning the most nourishing and enjoyable ways to cook, eat, move, and take care of yourself. This empowers and prepares you to take on all of life's responsibilities.
Life Skills Residential Boot Camp for Young Adults
Skyterra Embrace is so much more than “boot camps” and other camp programs. We are a holistic approach to health, wellness, and establishing life skills.
Parents who find themselves with young adults (ages 18 to 29) who are unable to thrive in the real world often turn to the experts at Skyterra Embrace. Parents who are searching for a boot camp or treatment program for young adults usually do so because they see their troubled teens with bad behavior and desire a long-term solution. Bad behavior can result in young adults being unemployed, living with family without responsibility, an incomplete education and extensive amounts of time spent on social media. Young adults fall into bad habits for many reasons. Many lack confidence, hold on to emotional baggage, feel small and inadequate, lack determination and have no communication skills.
Support for families and students
We believe that parents should be on the same page as their young adult and have success as a common goal. In order to accomplish this, parents know that they must require their young adult to step up and be responsible. Families try to help, but often are unable to successfully motivate their loved one. Skyterra Embrace offers support to families, teaching young adults to feel confident in making good decisions. The program at Skyterra Embrace is a landing space for students where the coaching and guidance of professionals and peer groups encourage curiosity instead of shame. Where shame creates fake relationships so that everyone involved can feel safe, curiosity allows students to think deeply about themselves and where they fit in the world.
Planning for the future
The professionals at Skyterra Embrace have more than 30 years of therapeutic program experience, specializing in the transition to adulthood. Before a student attends Embrace, our experts meet with the student to determine their personal goals and needs, then create a personalized schedule just for them. The Embrace program teaches students how to plan for and live out the vision for their future, creating a smooth transition from Skyterra to everyday life.
Sustainable skills and healthy habits
As a residential treatment program, Embrace teaches students many skills that will guide them throughout their life. Embrace students have the autonomy to make their own choices during the program. Natural consequences are used to make right choices easier than wrong choices. Quick fixes like boot camps do not work because they are not sustainable. Through structure and routines, Skyterra Embrace helps students function productively and motivates them to create healthy habits.
Understanding our program
The confusion that comes with experiencing life can be combated. Embrace students undergo diligent and purposeful education and coaching where they are allowed the freedom to create their own future. Personalized programming includes an hour of private therapy each week. Throughout the program, students will learn how to combat the stress of life that everyone experiences. They will understand that they are not the only ones who feel discomfort due to the weight of life. Together with their peers, students will grow together in our structured, supported and guiding environment that allows exploration of thoughts, emotions and behaviors. Skyterra Embrace includes daily discussions and therapeutic groups filled with opportunities to explore with peers and collaborate with other young women that are also seeking opportunities to be successful and lead a purpose-driven life. Navigating life can be a daunting experience, but students are worth every step taken to improve their situation.
Outcomes for young adults
An important outcome of the Embrace program is that students can demonstrate self-sufficiency and freedom in applying tools to process, manage and experience life’s complexities. Another important outcome is that students learn the resilience and determination to stand back up when life knocks them down. Embrace students cultivate resiliency by learning the most nourishing and enjoyable ways to cook, eat, move, and take care of themselves. This empowers and prepares students to take on all of life’s responsibilities. Help your student become the hero of their story.
