I am the Executive Director of the La Vie Center which has 40 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.
