We constantly network in order to stay up to date on the latest program offerings and expand our knowledge base. At Finney Consulting we sift through hundreds of options until we identify those most suited to our clients.


Through our decades of experience, we have identified the top experts in the fields of mental health, addiction and education. Our efforts and connections give us access to professionals whom we trust, respect, and call upon on behalf of our clients.

This extensive network includes psychiatrists, program owners and administrators, clinical psychologists, specialty assessment professionals, therapists, parent coaches, educators, interventionists, substance abuse counselors, sober coaches, mentors, life coaches and tutors.

Family Support Services

Founded by a licensed family therapist, Finney Consulting recognizes the critical role families play in the healing process. Time and again, we see our outcomes improve when family members engage in a parallel process of their own education and personal growth. Therefore, we recommend compassionate support for the whole family and encourage our clients to reach out to us for resources and guidance throughout the continuum of treatment.

As part of our service, we provide family members with personalized recommendations, which can include workshops, support groups, parent coaches, therapists and educational resources designed to support families in this process.

Ancillary Services

At times, our clients may need additional services. When appropriate, Finney Consulting will recommend ancillary services such as psychological and academic assessment, safe transport, insurance advocates, legal services, etc. Should the need arise, we are able to provide our clients with trusted referrals.

Suggested Reading

We stay current on topics relevant to our practice by regularly reviewing scholarly articles, books and research. As an additional support to our families, we provide suggested reading for those wanting to learn more. Please feel welcome to ask one of us which articles or books may be most helpful.
