“I can’t tell you how many times I have called Vania and she has really talked me off a limb. I have trusted her to help me with both of my sons. Her advice is always sound and she is very supportive.”
– Parent

At V. Matheus – Therapeutic & Educational Consulting we help you make sense of the many complex decisions involved in getting your teen back on the road to a brighter future. What sets us apart is our high-level of involvement with families from the beginning of the process through completion and recovery. We understand that choosing to place your young person in a program or intervene in their lives is a deeply personal and difficult decision. We are a constant, accessible source of support, ideas, and expertise available to you throughout the process.

V. Matheus – Therapeutic & Educational Consulting is a private, boutique practice based in the San Francisco Bay Area. We meet with clients either in their homes or at our office location in Palo Alto. We also accept clients out of the area by phone or Skype, though we insist on meeting students in person so the most salient, meaningful recommendations can be made. If your teen is in a crisis, we’ll work with you on a strategy to make this meeting possible.

We utilize a four-step, comprehensive process to assess your child’s needs. After gathering and reviewing multiple sources of information as well as listening to your goals for your young person, we design the most effective plan for achieving a brighter future, with the best resources possible.

We specialize in therapeutic placement, intervention design, advocacy-oriented case management, post-treatment transition and reintegration.

Therapeutic Boarding School Placement

Residential Treatment Program Placement

Therapeutic Wilderness Program Placement
