Meet our Team

Mental Health Professionals

We know you love your adolescent. We also know you want what’s best for them.

Parents experience many feelings and have different reactions to having to hospitalize their adolescent. For some, it’s heartbreaking and completely overwhelming. For others, it’s a relief knowing their adolescent is getting the help they need.

At Willow Springs Center, we pledge to respect the unique needs of your adolescent and your family’s dynamics. Our compassionate, professionally trained staff will work together as an interdisciplinary team to provide the best coordinated care, support and guidance for your child throughout treatment.
