Affordable Christian Counseling Comes to East Kern


It seems that everywhere we look, we see the breakdown of society. Churches are often overwhelmed with the needs that are all around us these days. The DPER Life Center was developed to aid churches and the local community in meeting some of those needs.

Dr. Kevin Belsby, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and his wife Jolene, a Certified Life Coach, founded DPER Life Center to offer affordable counseling for individuals, couples and families. They also work along side local churches and community outreach groups to assist with their vision and need for seminars, training and retreats. A third component of the DPER Center is crisis counseling for pastors and their families.

Dr. Kevin and Jolene Belsby have served in ministry for over 30 years. Kevin was a founding professor at The King's University in Van Nuys, California and taught full time for over 15 years. He is an LMFT and has been licensed with the State of California for over 20 years. He currently has a practice in Palmdale with Associated Christian Therapy Services. The local DPER Life Center office is currently hosted by Summit Christian Fellowship at 414 S.Curry St. here in Tehachapi.

The DPER counseling office has been in operation for the last four months and most insurances are accepted. By the fall of this year the Center plans to offer court appointed parenting classes taught by Tehachapi Mayor Susan Wiggins and anger management classes taught by Dr. Belsby. Also, be looking for a support group for parents of children dealing with ADHD, ADD, ODD or bi-polar disorders.
