As Independent Educational and Therapeutic Consultants, we travel throughout the country looking at programs, schools and treatment centers on a monthly basis to understand their education platform, environment, residential structure and treatment philosophy. We come to you, with that knowledge so we can make the best placement recommendations based on your family’s needs. We work for your family, not any program or school.

Our background in assessment and evaluation as well as with struggling youth provides us with the expertise, knowledge and objectivity to understand the unique issues you are facing as well as the differences between programs.


I believe change and growth in this process is important. It is not natural for a parent to think about an out of home placement for their child. There are a lot of elements to this decision. Effort on everyone’s part is crucial. I have confidence in my families, their children and myself. This will be one of the hardest things you ever do. It can be intimidating. It can be overwhelming. I will walk with you through each step and I believe I can make it a bit easier. Let’s make a plan. 



It’s no secret that most addicts turn to alcohol / cutting / drugs / gambling / Internet / pornography / sex / video gaming to cover up pain from life trauma.
