“The people at Clear Child have two things in common: we love being here and we have committed our careers to improving the mental and behavioral health of children. This is a crew that holds Empathy, Accessibility and Rest as core values. Yes! I said rest. We believe that employees who are well rested and supported can bring the best and most creative ideas to our customers. And when you interact with us you will feel it. With every meeting, development push and process improvement we have one thing on our minds…how can we reach our goal of guiding 1 million families on a clear path forward to better mental health.”
– Dr. Marcy Willard, Founder and CEO
We have taken the pledge to donate 1% of all profits to efforts that support children with disabilities, families in distress, and provide economic support for mother-led companies.
Our long term commitment is to reach 1 million kids with our technology and support. Currently, we have touched the lives of about 1,000 kids with CADE.
Funds close to $2 Million have been raised for development of CADE, scaling services to families, AI technologies, and Go-To-Market strategies — resulting in increased access to families who need us most.
CADE is used by 236 schools for free, allowing school-based clinicians to guide families toward the resources and support they need in their schools, as well as within their communities.

Empathy is of utmost importance to us. At Clear Child, we prioritize empathy for our customers and for each other in everything we do.
We pride ourselves on being accessible and relatable to our customers, partners, colleagues and stakeholders. We care and we listen. We are doctors, but we hope you will feel comfortable talking to us as you would a friend.
When you have concerns for your child, you don’t want to hear wild ideas or theories about what could work. What you want are experts who are knowledgeable, confident, and stick to their word. We strive to support and stand by our clients, no matter the challenge.
We value being genuine and transparent. As professionals in the mental health field, it is essential to us that our clients see us as real people, and that they feel the respect we have for them, each other and ourselves.
Our organization thrives on lean-Agile principles. We work in iterative learning cycles, propelled by feedback from customers, stakeholders, and individuals at every level of the organization. We believe that the best products are developed collaboratively with the individuals who use them.
We love this team. We love working here. We know and honor the fact that ‘life happens’ to us all. We are not the churn-and-burn startup culture. Rather, we are a team that allows and supports time off, family events, and breaks. We rest. As a result, we arrive refreshed, renewed, and ready to serve our customers.
Is Clear Child Psychology a clinical practice or a software business?
Both! We provide clinical services directly to families, contract and refer to other providers; as well as, development and licensing out of our CADE software assessment tool.
Does Clear Child Psychology take insurance?
No, at present we do not accept insurance plans or Medicaid. The reason is that many of our unique methods, including our telehealth assessments, and family coaching model, are not often reimbursed by insurance plans. We have seen that even when insurance is used, the cost savings are minimal and we believe that the quality of our services and corresponding improvements in the mental health of the children we serve make invaluable use of the investment. We are also committed to offering our services at a low cost to families, and in a fraction of the time.
Does Clear Child Psychology provide direct therapy to children?
Does Clear Child Psychology prescribe medication?
No. We are psychologists. Psychologists diagnose but do not prescribe medications. We provide referrals to psychiatrists or other medical doctors if that appears to be warranted during the evaluation.
