Clinical Services

Clinical services are offered to all residential children, following a complete assessment to determine their level of need. This assessment then drives the services that will best meet those needs. An important part of all students’ teams, therapists work with case managers, cottage parents, legal guardians, Guardian Ad Litem, social workers, and other important individuals to provide a cohesive and consistent environment for healing.

We can’t express enough the importance of a support system for these kids, and therapy is a vital part of that system.

– Toby Stoetzer, Director of Clinical Services

Clinical services are also available to members of the community. Referrals are accepted from the local schools or Department of Social Services. Licensed therapists help children and families learn new strategies to address challenges, break ineffective patterns, evaluate difficult decisions and overcome obstacles in order to lead a more fulfilling life together.

Staff therapists are trained in Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Equine Therapy, individual and family counseling, and group therapies.
