anxiety in teen girls

Clinical Team

 Our therapeutic school team is comprised of staff with decades of experience helping young girls make behavioral changes and develop coping skills.

All aspects of what we do at Asheville Academy Therapeutic Boarding School are viewed with a therapeutic lens.  We are a team based approach and work very closely with the family, administration, academic, and residential teams to ensure we are always helping young girls build skills and improve relationships across all aspects of the program and at home.
