After serving on a church staff for several years, Lee Smith saw his heart grow more than ever for the local church and for the state of Mississippi. He was inspired to open a private practice that would serve the community and state in both practical and unique ways.
Lee soon began to dream about a team of therapists that pastors and other professionals in the community could trust and partner with. He wanted to build a place where individuals and families would be treated with distinct care, and be better connected to their community: their doctors, their schools, their churches, their sponsors ... anyone who might be able to facilitate their healing process. He also dreamed of becoming a place where clinicians could receive top-notch training and then be commissioned to serve in other areas of the state, country and world.
