We Can Help!



Solutions & Support

Integrated Teen Services (ITS) provides a comprehensive and personalized service for teenagers and their families that includes the following:

  • Comprehensive Assessment

  • Implementation of Action Plan
  • On-going Support
  • Transition or Aftercare Plan

Therapeutic Consultation

As a therapeutic consultant, I combine my expertise as both therapist and educational consultant, which uniquely qualifies me to go beyond what most consultants offer by providing both solutions and support.

As a licensed psychotherapist, I bring to my practice over 15 years of experience helping adolescents and families. I am held to higher clinical and ethical standards than a traditional educational consultant. I am also able to foster whole family healing for adolescents and their families by providing individual therapy, family therapy, and parent weekly support groups.

Like traditional educational consultants, I also believe that a challenging and exciting academic experience is an integral component of an adolescent’s healthy life. Each adolescent’s education is a deeply important aspect of his or her Action Plan. I am intimately familiar with a vast array of educational alternatives, local treatment interventions and schools, and therapeutic schools and programs nationwide. I guide families to the most appropriate educational and therapeutic settings; I make every effort to help the adolescent be more successful in the home environment.

Who We Help

Families contact us from across the country because of our expertise in dealing with a full range of pre-adolescent to adolescent to young adult issues. Some seek preventive measures, while others are coping with unsafe, escalating situations that might include legal troubles. We provide guidance and support at every level.
