A student’s treatment team includes clinicians, teachers and residential staff. Formal therapy is more traditional in scope but not in venue. Counseling sessions may occur in the therapist’s office or out walking or working on the ranch. Therapy includes weekly individual, family and group sessions which take roughly 20 hours each week.
A licensed psychiatrist is on staff and meets with students weekly. He assesses and adjusts medications as needed. Our psychiatrist is also available to discuss with students any other areas of concern.

At a very young age Clinton realized that he could have an impact on others lives through service and being involved. He is happiest when he is making a difference in others lives. Clinton is married and has four children. He loves spending time with them doing just about anything. They are his life. Clinton uses the same principles that they teach at the Ranch at home with his kids. It works. Clinton fell into this industry because his brothers have worked in other Residential Treatment Centers. He started out his career in admissions. He loves his work and feels blessed to have found something that he loves to do and get paid to do it. Discovery Ranch has been a passion for him in that he gets to help create experiences for others the way his parents did for him when he was young.More
