Meet Our Superior Farmerville Staff
Educational Background: Bachelor of Art & Master's of Science degree from Grambling State University
Passion: I am a Mental Health Professional at Superior Counseling Services, LLC. My hometown is Pineville, La. As I reflect on where I am in my life and the experiences that brought me here, I can see that I encountered strong influences in my early learning experiences that guided me to what are now my strengths. Those influences helped mold me into the caring, understanding, multi-faceted person I am today. It is imperative that I put my best efforts toward promoting healthier lives for my clients. It does my heart good when I can help those in need.
Message to Clients: My goal is to ensure that the children of today become the well rounded adults of tomorrow. One of my favorite quotes by Maya Angelou states, “I have learned that people will forget what you said; people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Educational Background: Bachelor of Art degree in Psychology from Grambling State University
Passion: My name is Ciria Lee and I am a Mental Health Specialist at Superior Counseling Services, LLC. I am from a SMALL town, LeCompte, Louisiana, on the outskirts of Alexandria, but I have a BIG vision to help others. Every day I am grateful for the opportunity to positively impact lives on a daily basis. I am currently pursuing a Masters of Arts in Social Science, concentrating in Psychology at Grambling State University. I am joyfully married to George Lee IV. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, serving at my church (Church of the Champions), and also helping in the community.
Message to Clients: I have a passion for those in need and also children. As God helps me, I love to help others.
Educational Background: I trained as a Maintenance Scheduler and was posted to Yokota Air Base in Tokyo, the “Hub of the Pacific”. The USAF provided my excellent grounding in office administration and IT training. My strengths are good organization, data collection and presentation. I monitored a fleet of C-130 cargo planes, reported activity of all squadrons to the Base Commander and participated in base-wide exercises. As a valued member of their team, I was awarded Airman of the Quarter and given the Inspector General’s coin (an “award” given to one airman per base, per year). After leaving Japan in 2006, I earned Administrator Level 2 certification through West Nottinghamshire College in England and Star Performer two consecutive years while working for Center Parcs, Whinfell Forest, Holiday Resort.
Passion: I love a job well done! My free-time is devoted to enjoying the beauty of nature with my husband, spending time with my family and friends at home and at church. I also enjoy genealogy, crocheting, photography, discovering pastures new, astronomy, antiquities, reading and gardening. There is always something new just around the corner and I am thankful in the knowledge that each step is guided by the grace of the good Lord.
Message to our clients: Believe in progress and you will realize it. Quality of life is fundamentally important and I hope my efficiency in service delivery will contribute to improvements in yours.

I believe that regardless to age, race, economic status, or any of that, we all hurt and deserve to be heard and cared for.
Message to Clients: YOU deserve to be cared for!! I have had the privilege of learning from many unique children over the years that 1) all behavior has meaning and 2) no one can tell you how to feel. If you have adequate support, education, and therapeutic intervention you can overcome any obstacles you face in life. Even with mental illness, you can learn to take care of yourself. I am dedicated to each and every individual I work with to promote a trusting relationship, self-evaluation, healing, and skills development.
