Dr. Gary Lira
My name is Dr. Gary Lira, I was born and raised in Southern California. I have a BA in Psychology, a MA in Counseling from Argosy University, and a Doctorate in Education from Northcentral University. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and the Clinical Supervisor for 10 Acres Ranch.
I have worked in mental health over a decade, and I enjoy the camaraderie in hearing people and how they can overcome their obstacles. Prior to working as a clinician, I worked as the Director for The Boys & Girls Clubs, I truly enjoyed that opportunity and was able to help several kids and families.
Lastly, I have 2 kids, both in college and my favorite past time is spending time with my kids! I also enjoy sports; I play golf once a week with my father. My favorite quote, “The meaning of life to find your gift but the purpose of life it to give it away” A fun fact no one would ever guess, I signed a contract to play professional basketball in Italy but because of an injury I didn’t play!
