My first priority is my husband and my children. I love being a mom and enjoy attending all their sports and dance events. My whole life I was involved in dancing and had my own dance company by the age of 18. Over the past 18 years I have worked extensively with people with disabilities as well as children and teens at risk. I have had the privilege of caring for seven foster children in my home over the years. One of my first experiences with at risk youth is when I ran the Family Support Center for abused and neglected children. Since then I have been involved with youth in church, community, and schools.

Comments on DRA

One of my duties at the Ranch is to help parents in the decision making process of sending their youth to Diamond Ranch Academy. It is very satisfying to be involved in helping parents with an option that helps them find hope for their child and see hundreds of lives change. I love what I do here and can not imagine a greater reward than seeing a youth graduate and knowing the difference it makes, not only for them but their whole family.

We can also help you in your search for other schools for troubled youth, residential treatment center for teens, therapeutic teen ranches, boarding schools for troubled youth, or schools for troubled teens. Diamond Ranch Academy is a therapeutic boarding school for troubled teenagers, offering teen counseling for teens with adoption issues (reactive attachment disorders), or self-harm (self-mutilation), or cutting, or eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, anorexia nervosa).

If you have an out of control teenager, please consideer the teen counseling and teen counselors for troubled teens here at DRA.
