About Us

Our Vision

milestone front

From the beginning, Milestone’s vision was to bring high quality, cutting edge mental health and behavioral services to Clermont and surrounding Central Florida communities.  At Milestone we strive daily to challenge the stigma and “clinical” feel often associated with mental health centers.  Our goal is to provide the best services possible in a warm and friendly environment that feels like home.

Our Story

The vision for Milestone was born in the hearts of Valarie and Geron Rogers while they were still in school preparing for their work in the mental health field.  Two factors drove their passion to build Milestone: Both had experienced traumatic events in their own lives, and they had always recognized the value of a healthy family in the pursuit of living a full life.  There, a mission to support individuals and their families during times of need was born.

In 2010 they were given the opportunity to work with a local church, who had become overwhelmed by the need for counseling services.  From that one tiny office Milestone has grown significantly and now serves our community from a 7,500 square foot facility that has allowed us to expand by not only serving more clients, but also offering a growing number of related services.

Milestone currently serves Clermont and surrounding communities with 15 highly qualified and experienced clinicians, and provided over 14,000 face-to-face hours to clients in 2019.  With state-of-the-art facilities and a desire to bring mental health services to children and adults alike, Milestone is grateful for the opportunity to help you make the best of whatever life brings.
