Yellowbrick Find Your Way Home

Yellowbrick has created a developmentally specialized, research-based clinical model that integrates cutting edge findings from neuroscience, innovative psychotherapies, strength-based life skills and wellness medicine.

Across a spectrum of diagnoses and patterns of dysfunction, all of the young people coming to Yellowbrick share common difficulties in negotiating the universal challenges of transitioning into adulthood. Modal diagnoses include mood and anxiety disorders, PTSD, OCD, trauma related and dissociative disorders, co-occurring psychotic disorders, substance abuse, eating disorders, borderline and avoidant personality disorders, and “failure to launch.”

Yellowbrick collaborates with adolescents and emerging adults, ages 16-30's, their families and participating professionals toward the development and implementation of a strategic “Life Plan.” An integrative, multi-specialty consultation clarifies strengths, limitations, and risks, and defines motivations, goals and choices.

In addition to supported apartment living at The Residence, Yellowbrick’s Consultation & Treatment Center offers:

  • Minding the Brain PHP/IOP promoting brain regulation with multiple approaches such as mindfulness, mind-body work, self-integration techniques , distress tolerance skills training, and support for promoting sustaining attachments.
  • Life Strategies Program PHP/IOP continues much of the work of Minding the Brain while also addressing universal developmental challenges for emerging adults.
  • Individual and family adolescent services addressing self-governance, social effectiveness and renegotiating family relationships in the context of achieving connected autonomy.
  • Specialized evening IOP programs:
    • Trauma recovery,
    • Substance abuse and compulsive behaviors,
    • Disorders affecting the relationship of self to the body.
  • Center for Clinical Neuroscience:
