We believe the relationship between the counselor and client is integral to the therapy process. Therefore, we strive to match each client with the therapist who best meets the client’s needs. Learn more about our counselors as well as our support staff below.
Dr. Christie Rogers-Larke, Clinical Director
EdD, NCC, DCC, RPT-S, LPC-S, BCPCC
Dr. Rogers-Larke believes that every person has the power to heal themselves and problems are simply symptoms of things that are going on. She specializes in child, adolescent and family therapy and has training in a variety of modalities. As such, she tailors her approaches to best meet your needs (CBT therapies, art and play therapies, behavioral approaches, social skills and trauma techniques).
Therapy, in its truest sense, is not about comfort because it is never easy dealing with some of our issues, but her goal is to make the process supportive and safe. She has a variety of specialty areas, including ADHD, women’s issues, trauma, and children. Dr. Rogers-Larke attempts to make abstract concepts concrete and assists clients in finding ways to apply them to their lives. If needed, services can also be offered at a distance once the treatment is determined.
