Insight Treatment is Now Clear Behavioral Health!

Teen Mental Health Treatment Programs

We are pleased to announce our latest expansion with Insight Treatment in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. Proudly expanding with 4 new locations to now offer thirteen Clear Behavioral Health locations throughout Southern California, plus our online program available to all of California.

We are passionate and determined to maintain and elevate the work Insight has spent 3 decades cultivating by working with teens and their families to support them to find the treatment they need to succeed.

We look forward to continuing to serve the community and providing mental health treatment for teens.

Our Approach to Mental Health for Teens with the help of Insight

Our approach is always to provide effective treatment for your child. What works for another teen may not be the right treatment for your teen. Every teen who enters Clear Behavioral Health will meet with our clinical team. They will create an individualized treatment plan for your teen’s specific needs.

For the best plan with the highest possibility of wellbeing, our team will reach out to your child’s teachers, previous care providers, and anyone else that you and your family would like us to collaborate with.

As a result, we are able to create a plan that focuses on your adolescent’s greatest areas of need so that they can receive treatment that is comprehensive and well-rounded and achieve mental wellness.

    Terrill Richard, LMFT

    Primary Therapist, Pasadena

    Terrill believes there is a sprinkle of magic in all of us. With the complexities of life, that magic is lost, covered in residue of the past that can sometimes result in our vision becoming pixilated with hopelessness. Hopelessness of our present and fear of our future.

    Terrill obtained their Masters in Marriage and Family therapy at Pacific Oaks College. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Terrill has years of experience with LGBTQIA + “Exploring” populations. Utilizing a client-centered/psychodynamic approach, they have been able to prompt and promote healing in an array of mental and emotion experiences. Terrill’s goal is to awaken a magic that is inside us all. A magic that’s unrealized and lost due to life’s concoction of beauty, traumas, regrets, and hopes.

    Terrill believes therapy removes the veil that blocks one’s ability to live fruitfully, beautifully authentic, and in acceptance.

    Rather it’s exploring sexual orientation, navigating freely along the spectrum of gender, navigating family conflict, treating depression, anxiety, substance abuse, healing complex traumas, loneliness, or simply feeling misunderstood. The journey is worth it.

    Terrill strives to create a therapeutic space that’s safe, sacred, and secure. Terrill is a consultant who offers trainings for professionals, academia institutions and businesses regarding safety, alliance, and inclusivity, pertaining to LGBTQIA+ “Exploring” populations

    Let’s unleash our magic.

      I can’t say enough good things about Clear Behavioral Health. The care that I received was exceptional. The staff are very professional and committed to providing outstanding treatment. They go out of their way to cultivate an atmosphere of compassion, awareness, and recovery.

      The multi-pronged approach; the counselors, individual therapy, nutrition, sympathetic/empathetic counselors of each group session shifted my brain paths. You are never finished there, even when you “graduate”, they hold alumni group sessions when you feel you need it. I have nothing but gratitude for their program.

      Marci B.
    • star star star star star

      Clear Behavioral Health is my second family that I never knew I had that supported me and continues to passionately support the sober community. The therapists, counselors and group facilitators have been amazing in helping me have a voice, loving myself again, and seeing the world in a new light. I am eternally grateful.

      Liz R.
    • star star star star star

      From the get go, the staff made me feel welcome and were all very friendly. My therapist and case manager were also very helpful and supportive throughout the whole process. I found that the somatic therapy was the most valuable for me, the therapist who ran those groups was great. My biggest takeaway from treatment was to take the time to pause, not be afraid to ask for help, and not worry about things in the moment. If you are looking for meaningful change and being part of a new and supportive community, then Clear Behavioral Health is the right fit.

      Overall I loved the experience and did not want to leave. The staff was very helpful and motivated me to stay even when I felt like running away. I also built meaningful connections with my therapist and case manager who gave me a lot of useful advice and are still supporting me today. Since leaving, my family and sponsor have noticed a big difference, and I could not recommend a more supportive environment for addiction and mental health treatment, Clear saved my life.
