Our owner, Sandi, was previously a social worker who worked with families and decided she wanted to assist with more intensive intervention. She completed her graduate program with Palm Beach Atlantic University to obtain her licensure in Marriage & Family Therapy and to start her own practice in Clermont, FL, which at the time was lacking therapy services. Her passion is seeing families experience life in a healthy and positive way has led to the expansion and growth of FLCC to now encompass 7 locations in Lake, Orange, & Polk County. With over 50 therapists, FLCC is leading the way in cutting edge therapies & groups, such as Safe & Sound Protocol, Brainspotting, EMDR, ART, MNRI, Expressive Arts & Music therapy, Action Sports therapy, and much more. Sandi has also been a Keynote Speaker with Dept of Children & Family Services and the Statewide Child Welfare Summit for over 8 years, speaking on one of FLCC's main specialties: Trauma, and how it impacts the family unit. With the growth over the past few years, FLCC now has therapists in almost every school (public and private) in Lake County, FL.
Donnie Burchfield is the CEO/Co-Owner of FLCC and is married to Sandi. He has mentored hundreds of young men through high school sports for over 20 yrs. He primarily uses his football platform, although he has also coached wrestling, weightlifting, track & field, and girls' basketball. Donnie is a dynamic and "out-of-the-box" speaker who often speaks at school forums, youth ministry events, and has been in ministry for 19 years. He is also the lead pastor of a non-denominational church that is focused on reaching the next generation of young adults and youth in Clermont, FL. Donnie participates on numerious community boards and projects in Lake County, FL such FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), and passing out food at local food pantries, doing local outreach projects with other churches & organizations.
