In 1994, two therapists, Marianna Thomas, MFT and Cecile Dillon, PhD met over coffee and discovered they shared a mutual goal-to create a counseling center for those who could not otherwise afford therapy. Though they each tried to see as many clients as they could on a pro bono basis in their own practices, there was a limit to how much they could do.
Therapist Linda Reed had founded the Living Success Center in 1977, but the center wasn't active. With Linda's blessing, Marianna and Cecile took the non-profit status of LSC and expanded its services, making it a training site for graduate students and the rest is history.
Dedicated to successful living, Living Success Center has grown to include a staff of 25+ counselors, and provides low cost therapy to hundreds each year.
