Our mission is to collaborate, support and empower clients as well as Psychotherapists to grow in a safe and nurturing environment. We provide therapuetic interventions to children, adolescents, and adults through various clinical treatment modalities.

In addition to traditional psychotherapy, we also understand that faith can play an important role in Healing, Recovery, and Growth. We now offer Christian Counseling which is a form of psychotherapy that is integrated into the methodology of traditional talk therapy along with beliefs and practices and the application of theological concepts.

Laurie Carpenter is the primary therapist and founder of Authentic Life LLC. We are a  growing Clinical Counseling and Wellness practice in Independence, MO.
