We began Applied LA with one purpose in mind:

to treat clients with respect for the possibility of change in their lives.

It is incumbent upon us to create individualized treatment in order to assist you in discovering solutions to your struggles. We empower individuals to replace feelings of hopelessness, fear and frustration with hope for a brighter future.

It is very important to take your time in choosing a program as the best treatment includes the development of a trusting relationship. We are here to support you in creating a life of courage in which you can tackle the obstacles that have, thus far, limited your potential. Together, we can forge a plan that will lead to a much more fulfilling life experience.
