Whether your family is considering a traditional / day boarding school for students who learn differently, a wilderness, short-term assessment/stabilization program, a therapeutic boarding school, a residential treatment center, or a program for young adults, the choices can be daunting.
We save you time and resources with our broad knowledge of schools and programs, therapists, psychiatrists and psychologists.

When you need individualized attention and first-hand knowledge of a variety of local schools (private, public, and charter) IOP, PHP programs, or life coaching young adults to independence, we will help narrow the possibilities and provide recommendations as well as assist in advocating on behalf of your student.
