The combined experience of Scott Canter, as a program specialist and therapeutic consultant and Dr. Teri Solochek, as a licensed psychologist (PSY11869) is unmatched in the industry.

Combining their experience, Scott and Teri have successfully guided thousands of families through the treatment process.
Scott Canter began his career in 1987 working with teens as a direct care staff at a therapeutic boarding school. Scott ran groups, provided individual counseling, taught classes and facilitated adventure treatment at the boarding school in Southern California. Over the next 20 years Scott worked in the treatment industry where he was materially involved in developing adventure treatment programs in New York, North Carolina and Texas. As the National Director for a large educational treatment corporation he also supported the acquisition of therapeutic programs in Montana, North Carolina, Oregon and Utah. After two decades "on the ground" Scott joined a private consulting firm, establishing their office in Dallas, TX, where he began working directly with families as a private case manager and therapeutic consultant.

Together, we will engage in “Criteria Driven Research” to quickly identify the best "level of care." We collaborate with your professional team to gather their clinical criteria, build a plan and implement solutions. We will navigate choices together and implement at your pace.
We promise to be there for you through every step of your journey. We are constantly on the go, striving to increase our knowledge of school and programs. We promise to educate and empower you, so that you can make the best decisions for your family.

During a crisis, our focus is to quickly stabilize the situation.
Intervention-assessment programs are typically 30-90 days and provide parents with a thorough understanding of the underlying reasons for behavior and recommendations for next steps.
This approach allows parents to make thoughtful, researched decisions before moving forward. A trap many parents fall into is admitting a child directly into long-term care, placing their child into a higher level of care than is clinically warranted.
We offer solutions for families that fit your timeline and budget. Our clients have unlimited access to their service provider. Many times, our clients just want to talk. In a crisis, sometimes they want to connect daily. It shouldn’t cost extra to connect. Our approach ensures that you have access when you want it.
