About Us | ROWI Teen & Parent Wellness Center

Our Approach

ROWI uses the most effective, evidence-based methods. Our team also integrates non-traditional treatment methods like meditation, yoga, equine, art, and surf therapies to treat the whole person.

Every Adolescent Is Valued: We give care and attention to every child in need, regardless of race, religion, gender, or socioeconomic status. The wellbeing of the child comes first. Whether in outpatient therapy or partial hospitalization, the health and wellness of each adolescent is our mission.

Every Family Is Important: Regardless of background, parents who visit ROWI have one thing in common: they love their children. We appreciate every family who walks through the door and believe they are part of the solution, not the problem. ROWI understands that effective and lasting treatment must incorporate the entire family.

Healing Parent-Teen Relationships

I worked with Dr. Till-Feinberg starting at the age of 19. I have never had a more dedicated therapist. Today, I am an almost college graduate with four years of sobriety and have relationships that are non-toxic, and most importantly, the relationship I have with my parents is now one based off of trust and love.

Back from Substance Abuse

Candice was able to bring my son back. She brought him knowledge and an analytical understanding that has enabled him to experience joy again. What gives me comfort is knowing that I’ve given my son the best treatment possible from someone that I consider to be the best in their field–and that my son has a new lifeline as a result of Candice’s dedication, hard work, and love.
