Will Twombly, LMFT
Parent Program Facilitator
Will (he/him/his) grew up in Austin, TX and spent his summers working on a farm and enjoying the mountains and lakes of New Hampshire. Will received his Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Texas, and earned a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Oregon. He has spent over 25 years working with adolescents and young adults in outdoor and backcountry settings. Will has led countless therapeutic expeditions, worked in some of the most beautiful wilderness areas in the country, and is adept at facilitating powerful group journeys and personal transformations. In addition to leading backcountry expeditions, Will spent five years managing the operations of the New Hampshire Conservation Corps, and helped start and supervise three residential AmeriCorps programs.
Prior to joining the team at True North, Will was a therapist at wilderness therapy programs in Oregon, Montana, and Hawaii, and maintained a private outpatient therapy practice. His counseling style integrates a variety of therapeutic approaches, including structural family therapy, motivational interviewing, narrative therapy, the Gottman method, and cognitive-behavioral and emotionally focused therapy. Will is compassionate, direct and strengths-based. He has extensive experience working with individuals, groups, couples, families, and multi-family groups of varying sizes.
Will’s passion for the outdoors is more recently reflected in his successful thru-hikes of the Appalachian Trail (‘10), the John Muir Trail (‘11), the Pacific Crest Trail (’14), and the Colorado Trail (’17). He strongly believes that expeditions can help us connect to the natural world, strengthen our sense of identity and capability, improve our relationships, and enhance our overall wellbeing.
