Light The Way Counseling Center is a center that offering counseling for couples, families, singles, children, and teens. With locations in Midland Park, Bloomfield, Fort Lee, Phillipsburg, Randolph, Rutherford, and online, it’s never been easier to find healing and overcome life’s challenges, no matter what stage of life you are in.

Light The Way Counseling Center

Family Healing Center in Livingston is the brainchild of Malik Carey and Bill Powell. Bill Powell has 50 plus years’ experience as a licensed clinical therapist and has helped many married and committed couples to rebuild their relationships. Bill and Malik saw that solo practices usually offered limited therapeutic resources. They had a vision to open a mental health center that would change the lives of families by providing a full complement of services. And so Family Healing Center was established and staffed with highly qualified therapists.
