All About Larry Porta

Larry is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Addiction Professional.  He achieved his BS in Psychology from Michigan State University. After, he then received his MA in Counseling, at the Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida. Previously, Larry owned and operated a large, private, counseling practice in central Florida. This is where he and his wife Becky, raised their three children. Larry then decided it was time to simplify life, and made the decision to move to beautiful Michigan, where Larry had his own practice in Gaylord, MI.  Larry now relocated to Johnson City, TN and works at Papillon Behavioral Health.

Larry Porta is an avid outdoors-man who loves to fly-fishing, archery, surfing, canoeing, camping and hunting.  He travels throughout the United States in pursuit of these adventures, and  he loves sharing these moments with others. Counseling does not just have to happen in an office setting, hence the creation of Brave Heart Adventures. Brave Heart Adventures are one of Larry’s favorite ways to further the counseling process. These trips can help you get away from everything, so that you may be able to see things with a clearer mind.  To see a few pictures from his travels and to learn a little more about the adventures click here.
