Why Choose Capital Youth Services?

We know there are lots of therapists who work with teens. Why choose us?

  • Our founder, Britt Rathbone, was one of the first therapists to specialize in working with adolescents in the metropolitan Washington, DC area. Britt Rathbone is widely recognized as an expert in adolescent psychotherapy. He trains our team, trains our local community, and trains hundreds of therapists throughout the country.
  • We know what works with adolescents. Our team is skilled at engaging teens in therapy, delivering cutting edge treatments, and achieving positive outcomes.
  • We strive to get better and better. Our training and supervision of therapists is robust, cutting edge, and thorough. Our therapists are supervised on-site and have ongoing and consistent access to national and international expert consultants for specialized treatments and interventions.
  • Many therapy practices hire independent contractors. The IRS does not permit direct supervision of independent contractors. We hire employees so we can directly train and supervise our therapist’s work.
  • We are a happy team of therapists. We like one another and like our work. We prioritize the quality of life of our employees and offer a generous compensation and benefits package to attract and retain top therapists. Many of our team members have 10, 15, and over 20 years with the practice.
  • Our offices are designed for client comfort and growth, with input from our clients! We know that teens have a long day with school, sports, work, community service, and social activity. We want teens to feel safe and at ease in our offices. We invest in soundproofing, snacks, refreshments, and necessary therapy tools to maximize treatment effectiveness.
  • We have maintained a stellar reputation in the community for over 30 years. We earned this by always treating each client as an individual, with a unique history and unique needs. We treat every client with the attention and commitment we would bring to a dear friend or family member. The well-being of our clients and respectful, ethical treatment is our highest priority. We are proud of our track record of ethical behavior, integrity, and outstanding therapy outcomes.
  • The therapists at Capital Youth Services are the best. Our therapists are regarded as experts by the larger professional community.
