Executive Clinical Director

New Haven Residential Treatment Center is a pioneering leader in long-term therapeutic residential programming. Beginning in 1995, New Haven introduced intensive family systemic treatment approaches requiring ongoing parental involvement through weekly therapy sessions, on-site multi-family groups and well-planned family home visits. Concurrently, New Haven has built strong experiential, academic, and values components to solidify student and family change processes. In-home coaching visits and the use of outcome data to inform ongoing treatment and to measure success post discharge are other significant innovations in the past decade. New Haven’s successes are backed by an array of internationally-normed and proprietary data points not matched in any other treatment settings.

Most students enrolling at New Haven have been to several treatment programs before finding us. Our goal is to be their last stop for inpatient treatment. With our feedback-informed treatment guiding the therapeutic process we are able to be clinically nimble. If our current tactics are not propelling change, we respond quickly to support clients through new approaches. New Haven regularly hosts visits by others interested in our approaches. Our team members routinely present at national conferences and serve on national association boards.

As the Executive Clinical Director, you'll have the opportunity to change lives and heal families every day. You will also have a voice in steering policy and change processes on a national and on a regional stage.
