As independent educational and therapeutic consultant, Dr. Frances gets to know you and your child to best determine and meet their unique needs.

She takes the time to listen and understand your needs. 

She has comprehensive and extensive knowledge of programs and schools and their available clinical, educational and family support services and chooses to recommend only those programs and schools with high ethical standards.    

Here at Horizon Family Solutions Dr. Frances helps find the best placement that will focus on your child’s or teen’s personal strengths to meet their individual challenges. She is very aware that what works for one adolescent, teen or young adult, may not be appropriate or a best fit for another. For most families, a good education is a top priority. The choices and options can be confusing. And, like most important family decisions, the choice of a program or school needs to be the result of careful and thoughtful planning.

Dr. Frances travels on a regular basis in order to thoroughly research and assess available program and school options. She is consistently researching and searching out those programs and schools that are always exceeding the expectations she has for her clients. 

There is no substitute for first hand on-site knowledge. As a professional she develops relationships only with programs and schools of integrity and listens carefully to all information that is being shared from the many departments that make up a program or school.

She does not solicit or accept any fees, compensation or commission from any camp, agency, program, institution or school. In this way there is no bias and the true basis of your work with her is your family and the needs associated with your current situation. 

Her client is you and your child.  

Horizon Family Solutions adheres to Ethical Guidelines for the Profession of Educational Consulting

Over the years I feel blessed to have gained a friendship with her and we have worked together to assist several Special Needs families. Dore has a number of strengths to offer young people and their families. She has a compassion for youth, a genuine commitment to family systems and strives to help students emotionally grow and realize their hidden strengths. I have been continually impressed with her dedicated efforts to find solution-focused strategies.”
