Solstice RTC

Solstice  offers young women ages 14 – 18 a specially designed program for their unique needs.  

As a clinically intense, relationship-focused approach, Solstice provides teen girls– and their families– an opportunity to begin a new journey, believe that change is possible, and become the person they wish to be.

Girls and families not only learn necessary skills to manage the challenges they face, but more importantly therapy gets to the core of the behaviors and heals the underlying trauma and issues. This, combined with our principle driven approach results in permanent, lasting, internal change that will stand up in the face of opposition and challenge.

Our relationship-based approach emphasizes high levels of family intervention, emotional safety, healthy boundaries, and a phase program, creating an environment conducive to healing from trauma of all varieties. Girls arrive uncertain of their future and often unaware of their incredible potential. Stage by stage, our girls reestablish a focus on who they can become and rebuild their personal and interpersonal skills.  A new, powerful journey starts and Solstice and our girls leave with the skills to continue on a healthier, happier path.

Keoni has a Masters Degree in Psychology, and is an Advanced Substance Use Disorder Counselor for the state of Utah. He has worked with adolescents for over 17 years and is experienced with many different skills for helping teens with addiction problems.

Keoni has been married for 25 years, and has one daughter and one son. He is fluent in the Spanish language and enjoys movies, fishing, hunting, singing, writing songs, and playing guitar.

I like what we get a chance to do at our program.  There are a lot of forces out there trying to destroy families, and few things trying to help families.   Solstice is one of the things that helps to strengthen and save families in need.

Charlie has worked in the mental health field since 2002. He has extensive experience organizing, developing, and operating programs.

Charlie’s passion is in creating a healthy and healing environment.

Personally, Charlie is a huge sports fanatic, especially the NFL! One thing that will become very evident is his loyalty to his team…the 49ers. In his spare time, Charlie is a high school football coach. He is also the Founder and President of a successful youth basketball program called Se Soia. Charlie developed this program to help kids who cannot afford to play competitive basketball. Charlie enjoys giving back to his community in these ways and many others.

Charlie is proud to be a father of eight children, four boys, and four girls. He and his beautiful wife, Jamie, have a slogan in their home that they very much adhere to: “If not for the kids, then why?” This statement exemplifies Charlie and his life dedicated to working with the youth of today, with the understanding that they are the hope for tomorrow.
