Describe the Typical Silver Ridge Client

All of our clients are in the midlife stage of development. That’s the criteria for admission to Silver Ridge. That’s defined as 35 to 65 typically, but really that’s something that we look at in the contextual way; midlife adulthood is most expansive age range and it has the most going on in terms of developmental stages. And so for us when I’m when I’m thinking about a client that can come to Silver Ridge or that’s interested in Silver Ridge we’re looking at where they’re at in their life in terms of are they responsible for themselves? Are they well into their career? Have they fully transcended that young adult phase in early adulthood and are sort of firmly established in their adulthood? And so our ages are 35 to 65, but we’re able to look at people individually and really see is this someone that would fit in with the midlife group that we have here. And the reason why that’s so important to us is that a lot of our clinical philosophy or our whole clinical philosophy is based on the midlife stage of development. We look at the developmental stages associated with that, with the midlife stage of development in order to help clients transcend the milestones that midlife adults go through.
