Welcome To Your New Life!


 Dr. Dwight D. LaVan, LMFCT

There are various viewpoints when is comes to spiritual beliefs, and that's perfectly okay. We are not supposed to have the same viewpoints, we are all different people that make up one body. I realized this firsthand when I first discovered my spiritual gifts. I had no idea what was going on or why it was happening just like I dreamt. I couldn't explain how I knew, what I knew. I always believed that God’s power was limitless (just like His love for His creations). I couldn’t deny that God truly had a calling on my life, Jesus truly did love me, and that The Holy Spirit did bestow great gifts upon me. Brothers & sisters, I am not worthy of this calling on my own accord. However, I am worthy because He said so, and so are you.


     Truly, I tell you that I am but a sinner, that has chosen to put his faith in Christ, while helping all of God’s people, the best way I can. My friend, we are all on different paths in life, it is not my job to correct you, it is my job to meet you right where you are, and help you go as far as you can. That is what makes this journey so beautiful, the fact that we are not all the same, but can still come together as one. Will you allow me the opportunity to serve you, and your family?

Head in Hands Marriage & Family Therapist Couples Counselor

Individual Counseling- 

Insurance Accepted, Self-Pay Rate Available.

In these sessions I help you to learn how to do the following: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference, living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; taking this world as it is and not as I would have it; trusting that You will make all things right if I surrender to Your will; so that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with You forever in the next.

Grief or Divorce Counseling-

Insurance Accepted, Self-Pay Rate Available.

These counseling sessions are for those who are struggling with the side effects of going through a divorce or are currently dealing with any form of grief. By now, I am sure that you understand that going through a divorce is just like losing a loved one. In a sense, it is, as the life you once knew is now over. However, that doesn't mean that you can't get past it, you don't have to remain stuck in the past for years (like I did), you can and will move on and eventually you will find love again. I did, I am here to help you do the same if you are willing and ready to receive the help.

Client Testimonials

What They’re Saying

It was a very wonderful experience working with Minister Dwight. I appreciate his time and the advice that he offers. His counseling skills are amazing! I was feeling  pretty bad about my situation before coming to him. I am now well on the road to the healing that I needed.  Thanks always Minister.

Veyola Johnson 

I had a few relationship coaching sessions with Dwight, a couple of years ago. When I was going through a tough breakup, he was able to coach me in the right direction. I wasn't feeling great about who I was within that relationship, he helped me to understand that I don't have to save anyone, and it's not my obligation either. He helped me to point out some things in me, that I didn't even know I had. I took my pain and turned it into purpose! I found the career that I wanted within the medical field and I just landed my dream job, I truly believe that this wouldn't have been possible without Dwight's coaching and believing in me. I would highly recommend Dwight, for a relationship coach.

Anabel O

Hi, I had a personal spiritual reading with Dwight, he was really spot on, what I loved about his style of reading was that he was patient, took his time to touch on the various aspects of sections that I am struggling with. Thank you so much for your time. Stay blessed 

M Blissed

I had a life coaching session here, and let me tell you this, it was amazing! I signed up for the 3 month package as it was affordable and fit well into my budget. I really liked the fact that they work with you there.

Ty Costrini

He is truly an amazing counselor he was able to help me bring out the much needed light that had been buried so deep in me from past hurt and pain. I would recommend Minister Dwight hands down to anyone that would like a non-judgmental spiritual counselor.
