About Us

Choosing the appropriate Advocate, Educational / Therapeutic Consultant, IEP Advocate or Parent Coach, is one of the most important decisions for families to make.

These are also challenging and difficult decisions.

Horizon Family Solutions is a team in which helping families is at the core of all our beliefs.

We understand that as you research you are overwhelmed with many options in which to choose from.

Your own associates, beloved family and friends, colleagues, neighbors, church members, school counselors and therapists may have all made recommendations out of the goodness of their hearts.

This can leave you feeling even more unsure than you were at the beginning of this situation.

Finding the best opportunity for each child, adolescent, teen or young adult is our only focus. We are professionals that are have a combination of over 75 years of skillful experience in assisting families.

Whether you are searching for a private college prep boarding school, an alternative and supportive learning environment, a clinical setting, a GAP Service experience, a residential treatment center, a therapeutic boarding school, wilderness therapeutic program, or a young adult transitional living experience, through our range of comprehensive services we are able to help determine the right placement options for your child, adolescent, teen or young adult, both short and long term.
