Littney Cruz, MS (Licensed Clinician)

Littney was born in Venezuela, South America as the third child in a Christian family (with two older brothers, and an adopted younger sister). Her parents were missionary workers all of their lives, working as ministers and teachers. Littney’s parents dedicated their lives serving others in their communities. Her parents spent five years in the Amazon as missionaries working with the Venezuelan Native Indians.Littney learned to love, help, and serve others from watching how her parents treated those around them. She completed her Bachelor Degree in Business (BA) in Antillean University, Puerto Rico.

In 1996, she married Jose Cruz and moved to United States. While in Berrien Springs, she completed her Masters in Social work, (MSW) and started her journey of ministering to others through therapy, guidance and support. She is happily married and has two children (Daniel and Janielly).

When her children were younger, Littney became a foster mother and helped other children learn effective coping skills and worked to help them create better lives for themselves and their families.
