About Us

All Kinds of Therapy is the most comprehensive, independent fact-based online directory for Family Choice Behavioral Healthcare Interventions (FCBHI) and the substance abuse industry for troubled teens and young adults. Our mission is to provide facts and easy to understand information that will help families compare and evaluate the many different solutions available. Our hope is that this information, along with the guidance of professional referral sources, will result in the best outcomes for families going through the difficult process of placing their child in a residential program.

All Kinds of Therapy is located in Maine and was launched in Salt Lake City, Utah. Utah is a hub of the troubled teen industry and young adult treatment substance abuse industries due to its regulatory environment, dynamic geographical options, and history of industry pioneers. is not a typical online directory.

Or, for example, alumni young adults telling peers what they really can expect a place to be like. Or occasionally, relevant and fascinating research being published.
  2. Experts: This section is FULL of different types of professionals who work remotely or in-person to assist a parent or parents, a family, or your child. We strongly encourage anyone in this process to seek the guidance of telehealth/teleassessment, interventionists, educational consultants/therapeutic consultants, parent coaching, and transportation to treatment to best meet your child’s unique situation. You can never ask too many questions of the professionals in the Expert section, having a connection & trust is key to the professional relationship.

  6. Map: When you are looking for treatment to transition, your first thought as a parent is to have your child or young adult nearby!

  7. Video: When you open an advertiser’s page, if they have a video, it will silently autoplay. You can hear the audio when you click on the video.

Jenney Wilder, M.S. Ed. (she/her/hers) is the founder of All Kinds of Therapy. She is a former education consultant and therapeutic consultant and was practicing in Washington, DC at the School Counseling Group. Throughout her career, she has advocated for families and their children while visiting and collaborating with treatment programs throughout the United States. Her comprehensive examination of treatment options and continued assessment of enrolled clients within these programs resulted in the development of an extensive library of treatment program facts. Jenney recognized the opportunity for a dynamic, factual directory that families and industry professionals could rely upon as a starting point. She made the ethical choice in 2015 to close her consulting practice and create the only unbiased voice for parents, young adults, and providers seeking the facts about treatment and intervention options.

Please note: Because she provides All Kind of Therapy’s information about programs and therapy and aftercare as an unbiased resource, Jenney has recused herself from consulting for any individual family and is focused on All Kinds of Therapy.
