Kathy Lewis, Administrative Assistant
Kathy has been the Administrative Assistant for our Centers since 2006. Kathy mans the phones and does all of the “intakes” for those who call about services and desire to be seen in therapy by one of our intern therapists. She works in close conjunction with the Clinical Director on many matters of the Centers. One could say that it is she who keeps things going!
