About Integrated Teen Services (ITS)

As therapeutic consultants, we combine the expertise of two professions to bring about the best possible results for our teenage clients and families.

As a team, we rigorously evaluate and critique academic and therapeutic schools and programs across the country, making certain that we only refer to those with the highest levels of expertise. And as licensed psychotherapists, we recognize the complexities of family dynamics that allows us to identify schools and programs with a similar family system orientation. We also develop and maintain relationships with the individual therapists within these schools and programs. We refer adolescents to specific therapists.

Our goal is to engender a strong sense of personal integrity and accountability in each adolescent that often leads to motivation to succeed academically and personally.

Our ITS families often regain a sense of joy and trust.

Professional Standards

At ITS, we continually visit special-needs and therapeutic schools and programs across the country. We attend multiple conferences annually to stay abreast of new developments in adolescent treatment, and we maintain relationships of integrity with our colleagues.

We accept no referral fees from the schools and programs that we work with. We follow the Principles of Good Practice as set forth by the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA), and the Ethical Guidelines of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT).
