New Perspectives at Pacia Life provides academic, career and life coaching services in Heber, Park City, Orem and Salt Lake City, Utah. New Perspectives has a strong partnership with Utah Valley University to assist young adults with tutoring, academic planning, college concurrent enrollment, executive functioning, and while learning to enjoy a rich social life, health and fitness, part-time jobs, find their housing, etc.

At New Perspectives, we provide Clinically Informed Life Coaching to young adults who struggle to find their place in the world and don’t believe they fit in. We guide them through their educational pursuits, career choices, creating healthy social lives and/or financial independence.

New Perspectives specializes in working with young adults who are challenged with specific learning disabilities, high functioning autism (Aspergers), learning differences, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), social anxiety, technology addiction, impulsivity, ADHD, non-verbal learning disorder (NLD), low self-esteem, low self-efficacy, and other dependencies that are blocking them from living on their own successfully. New Perspectives is a Life Coaching experience designed to guide young adults into achieving academic, career and other life goals. New Perspectives does not provide supervision. If your young adult needs to be ‘supervised’ then they are not appropriate.

Using the Tatori Method, we use a clinical expertise that specializes in this neurodiverse young adult population, along with a result orientated life coaching model to help our young adults achieve sustainable self-reliance.

About Park City/Heber City

Tucked in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, Park City, along with its neighbor Heber City, offers just about every imaginable type of outdoor recreation that the heart could possibly desire including world-class skiing, hiking, biking, rock climbing, kayaking, fishing, and horseback riding. Along with all the benefits of beautiful small town living, this location also allows easy access to the conveniences and opportunities that can only be provided by a major metropolis.

New Perspectives strives to build an environment that empowers and supports young adults with diverse learning needs to earn a college degree. Our New Perspective young adults have numerous educational opportunities available to them in the surrounding areas. Nearby colleges include Utah Valley University (UVU) Wasatch Campus (located between Park City and Heber City), UVU Orem, BEAU (Broadview University), as well as the University of Utah, Salt Lake Community College and LDS Business College.

While learning at local colleges, living in a supported and integrated environment, enjoying outdoor pursuits, we believe young adults coming from our Clinical Informed Life Coaching Model will be better prepared and more successful in today’s world.

While our team is always available and accessible for students, we do not provide around the clock supervision. If your young adult needs to be ‘supervised,’ then they are not yet ready for our program.
