Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Larry!

My name is Larry Penner and I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 1998. I have experience with a wide variety of people with different issues. Some of these issues include depression, anxiety, substance abuse and severe mental illness. I enjoy talking with people and helping them meet their goals in life.

My approach

I tend to look at how behaviors are reinforced and ways to increase most effective ways of coping with problems.

My focus

Most of my clients suffer from depression, anxiety or a combination of both.

My communication style

I tend to be soft-spoken and I let the client guide the session. I am probably less directive than the average therapist. I allow the client to do most of the talking. I use humor in my sessions at times. Humor is a great coping skill.

My journey to mental healthcare

I enjoy making a connection with people and seeing them grow. I have had my own mental health struggles so I can relate to what it feels like when things aren't going well.

My goals for you

I support a collaborative approach where we develop goals for treatment together so that we will be successful.

My first session with you

The first session is a time to get to know each other and talk about what you are wanting from therapy.
