Family Healing Center Beginnings

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.

We can help you overcome
the fears and obstacles in your life.

Malik Carey – Founder










Successful Leadership

In 2017 Mr. Powell returned to private practice in Maplewood, NJ leaving the leadership of Family Healing Center to its Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Malik Carey. With Mr. Carey at the helm, Family Healing Center has soared to greater heights in mental health therapy.

Under the leadership of CEO Malik Carey, Family Healing Center has served approximately two thousand clients from 2015 to 2022. Malik has merged his vast business experiences with his earnest passion for wellness to help create a holistic safe haven where families can heal, recuperate and live healthier, more productive lives, through our core value approach of C.A.R.E.-Compassion, Appreciation, and building strong Relationships with Expertise in mental health therapy.

Malik holds a BA in Religious Studies from Seton Hall University and a MS in Organizational Leadership from Nyack College. He was the former C.O.O. of The K.I.N.G. Movement, a National Men’s Ministry as well as a past leader of The Overcomer’s Program, a 12-Step Christian-Based Empowerment group instilled with promoting and maintaining disengagement from substance abuse and other maladaptive addictions.

Malik’s volunteer efforts are deeply rooted in New Jersey’s West Orange community where he is a highly respected mentor for young adults. Bethany Church, The Bethany Center of Champions and Daytop Treatment Facility are just a few of the faith-based organizations to which he graciously lends his time and efforts.

“Having Claudia Garrity as my therapist has been life changing for me. She allows me to vent and be 100% vulnerable while giving me strategies to cope with the challenges of life. I am able to see how sweet life can because of working with her & I’m eternally grateful”


"Therapist Ellerbee-Nurse has been a tremendous help through these trying times with me and my husband. Since we have been going to weekly sessions, she has shown us a positive outlook on our situation and given us the proper tools to get through everyday life.  We recommend Family Healing Center to everyone not just for couples but for individuals too.  Always protect your peace and it's OK not to be ok."

“I suffer from anxiety and initially always believed I could deal with the symptoms myself. When the symptoms became too intense, it started to affect my loved ones. With the help of Andrea Stefens, I was able to learn the skills needed to appropriately cope with my anxiety. Through therapy I learned that I am strong enough and capable of living life positively and that the unknown is not necessarily a bad thing. Thank you everyone at Family Healing Center.”
