Program Director for Counterpoise
Ryan Hanson is the Program Director for Counterpoise, The Burrell Group’s proposed flagship behavioral health initiative. Mr. Hanson is responsible for program creation and conceptual input into the design and development of a novel behavioral health approach to help young adults develop a healthy relationship and balance with technology. With a focus on supporting personal growth, leadership development, educational services to prepare for college, and fostering maturity, Counterpoise aims to help our next generation of leaders thrive in the real and digital worlds. Mr. Hanson is responsible for ensuring continuity and efficiency from the first contact with prospective referents and clients through their residential therapeutic stay, during their continuing care experience (whether volunteering or interning), and ultimately through the start of courses at their next-step academic institution.
Mr. Hanson has both a clinical and administrative background in his nearly 20-year career in behavioral health, with approximately half that time in program development, corporate administration, and executive-level leadership. Mr. Hanson is well-respected in the behavioral health industry for his creative and innovative therapeutic programming, including specialized work with family systems, sexual minorities, and habitual screen over-use. Mr. Hanson has worked in multiple levels of care for both not-for-profit and for-profit companies. His depth of experience is directly suited to Counterpoise’s contemplated programming.
Mr. Hanson holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Counseling.
