The Evangelhouse difference

Evangelhouse Christian Academy is unique in its integration of professional therapeutic services with Christian, biblical values. Christian principles are foundational to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of students.  Students are trained in a variety of therapeutic coping skills based in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and EMDR trauma counseling techniques are used when appropriate.

Therapeutic leadership

Clinical expertise is foundational to planning student goals, behavior expectations, school interventions, campus life, spiritual mentorship, physical activity and social development. Therapeutic components are emphasized throughout the entire school. A multidisciplinary approach is taken when implementing these interventions from an educated, professional design. Counselors report to parents and keep them involved with detailed weekly reports.

Clinical Psychotherapy 

Individual, family, and group therapy interventions are structured within the Evangelhouse Lifeleaf system. This state of the art system challenges students to work beyond symptom improvement. This unique integrative approach leads students to maturity, insight, and self-awareness. The blend of Christian values and professional clinical psychotherapy includes:

  • Professional assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning
  • Weekly individual therapy
  • Weekly group therapy
  • Parent and family therapy
  • Weekly therapeutic emphasis groups
  • Weekly DBT Therapy skills group
  • The unique Evangelhouse stages of change system
  • Experiential family therapy retreats
  • EMDR Trauma Therapy available as needed

Psychological testing

The Evangelhouse evaluation process frequently integrates psycho-educational testing results to clarify diagnosis, educational needs, and long-term treatment planning. 


Testing can be arranged with our consulting Christian psychologist Dr. Lynn Aurich, PhD. Assessments offered include:

      • Conners' Continuous Performance Test - II
      • Woodcock - Johnson III Tests for Achievement
      • Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory - Adolescent
      • Test of Memory Malingering
      • Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children
      • School Motivation and Learning Strategies Inventory
      • Beck Depression Inventory
      • Beck Anxiety Inventory

Medication management

Many students have medication needs for mild forms of depression, anxiety, ADHD, or bi-polar disorder. Some students are misdiagnosed and have complicated situations as a result. Students with such needs have the benefit of long-term medication evaluation and diagnostic feedback with our adolescent specialist psychiatrist. We work very closely with Dr. Phillip Lafleur, M.D. on an outpatient basis to provide structured medication interventions that are closely monitored by Evangelhouse staff. Parents are always involved in this process and speak directly with the doctor by teleconference at each visit.
