Our Team

A team with deep expertise and experience,
rivaled only by their enthusiasm.

Our multidisciplinary team is mission-driven and passionate about what they do. At Ivy Street, our collaborative approach guides everyone’s work. Each student works with a team of professionals from various disciplines who work together on all aspects of treatment. With such a large team, there is extensive involvement in every aspect of a student’s growth, and we see it on a daily basis.

Whether it’s our transition team, our social workers, or any of our teachers, it’s all about working closely and collaboratively with every student and family. That’s the reason so many of our students find success.

The quality, commitment and compassion of the staff has impressed us. We are thankful for our close relationship with the staff that have been involved with our child’s care.”
