Our Therapeutic Team

The JTC Academy Therapeutic Team recognizes the importance and therapeutic value of providing a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential environment where unconditional regard, empathy, patience, and compassion are cornerstones. We employ a very student-centered, strength-based approach with all youth. Therapy is intended to help youth assess their current situation, explore their innermost thoughts, feelings, and fears, develop effective coping strategies, identify obstacles and impediments, identify and define their life’s purpose, and find resolution to unresolved issues related to abuse, abandonment, grief, and loss. By providing ongoing individualized treatment to each of our youth, we can address the identified problem areas while monitoring educational and interpersonal progress.
