Thank you for visiting my page. Because you have landed here, it is probably because you have a dearly loved child who is struggling. It is likely that you have been referred to my consulting practice by a therapist, doctor, legal professional, trusted family member or friend who is familiar with my services.

If it has been suggested that your preteen, teen or young adult may benefit from the experience of some type of residential treatment experience, you may be rightfully concerned about how to find the one that will best meet your family’s needs.

I am here to help!

I have been assisting families in finding the appropriate treatment journey for almost 15 years. I know the treatment industry well and have had the privilege of guiding hundreds of families in finding the right treatment match.


Skelton-Thomason is well known for the guidance and support offered to families before, during and after placement. We communicate regularly and often with families throughout the process. We take pride in our personal touch that includes getting to know our families in a way that helps us understand their needs and hopes. With this insight, we can effectively guide them through the decision making process during these very challenging times. We assist with crisis management and offer immediate assistance with assessment, intervention, transport, parent coaching and treatment recommendations.
