"Therapy West was a fabulous resource for my family. They worked with us parents and our 15 year old son separately through two different therapists but in a cohesive, collaborative manner that really reversed the downward spiral our son was in. We were lucky to have this option in NYC when all other options pointed to residential out of state care. It allowed our family to make changes and heal together, rather than on separate tracks. The result is that the changes we made have stuck and helped us make a positive difference on our son’s trajectory."
