Realizing that a once-a-week session with a professional counselor is not always an effective intervention method, Turn-About Ranch employs a team approach that features daily therapy through the ranch environment.
Our clinical team consists of master’s level (and above) therapists who are either licensed or in the process of obtaining a license in clinical social work, marriage and family therapy, or professional counseling. In addition to planning the treatment and charting the progress of each student, these experienced and dedicated individuals are responsible for conducting individual, group, and family therapy sessions; maintaining contact with parents on a weekly basis; and conducting mid-term and graduation visits with families.
All other staff members are trained and experienced in the most effective techniques for supporting the clinical team, and regular communication ensures that our students are provided with the optimum environment in which to work toward their goals on a daily basis.
Throughout the entire program at Turn-About Ranch, changes are not just talked about – they are put into practice to create lasting benefits.
