About Us

Mental Health Therapy Center

Mental Health Therapy Center was founded in 2008 by therapists who saw a need to strengthen marriages, families, and children, who were struggling with a tide of influence against the institution of family.

Since it’s opening, Mental Health Therapy Center has provided mental health counseling to thousands of individuals and families seeking hope and direction. 

Our therapists have experience working with diverse populations helping people from all different races, religions, cultures, ages and socioeconomic backgrounds. We all share the same struggles as human beings and though the stories are unique and personal, we all struggle together in this thing called life.
