I am the Executive Director of the La Vie Center which has 30 therapists in two locations and was established in 1980. We have a wide range of specialties and fees, and because of the size of our group we are able to carefully match each client with a therapist that is personally best for them. We have experienced therapists on staff, Christian therapists on staff, offer a free initial consultation and have a sliding scale.
I am licensed both as a clinical psychologist and a marriage & family counselor. In addition to my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, I have a Certificate in Advanced Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from a Psychoanalytic Institute as well as a Masters Degree in Theology.
