THE PROGRAM 

The process begins with an initial assessment with SCR Counseling Care Director, Pastor Phil Lee, LMFT. This conversation helps us to determine if Shepherd's Canyon Retreat is a "good fit" for you and your needs. This is part of the application process which is a simple phone conversation with a series of guiding questions that help our counseling and clergy team to best determine the type of support that we can provide.
