Yellowbrick celebrates 15 Years of Transforming the Lives of Emerging Adults
Yellowbrick, a National Center of Excellence specializing in the treatment of emerging adults and their families, opened its doors at The Consultation and Treatment Center and The Residence in Evanston, Illinois, 15 years ago on August 6, 2006, after a year and a half of intense planning.
The Founding Directors were Laura Viner, Ph.D., Dale Monroe-Cook, Ph.D., Robbie Bogard, LCSW, Pam Tansey, RN, LCSW, and Jesse Viner, MD. Alan Schore, Ph.D., was fundamental as a consultant in creating the developmental neurobiological model. Throughout the past 15 years, Yellowbrick has worked with almost 900 patients and their families.
“We have weathered many storms including this past pandemic year and we look forward with cautious optimism and confidence. Throughout our history we’ve benefited deeply from the efforts of so many professionals who have collaborated with Yellowbrick and we hope to continue these partnerships for many years to come,” says Jesse Viner, MD, Founder, CEO, and Chief Medical Officer.
