Lewis and Clark traveled through the Helena, Montana area in 1805, as they traveled up the Missouri River. They noted the steep canyon walls and beauty of the area, and named the area spot Gates of the Mountains as the canyons seemed to open up like gates. The largest city park, Mount Helena, has over 630 acres of trails, many of which start at the base of the mountain and wind their way to the peak which is over 1,000 feet above the park. Well maintained hiking and mountain biking trails offer great views of the city and the gulches south of Helena.1 There are also 42 other city parks, including Memorial Park with a large public swimming pool, playground, ice-skating rink and a band shell. Centennial Park is a popular place for soccer and other field sports.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Helena, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Helena may have flexibility or sliding scales
