Meet our new Clinical Supervisor

Nicholas Ehrhard, LCSW.

Nick joined our team 5 years ago as a behavioral health professional soon after earning a master's degree in social work from Louisiana State University. Since then, he has been an amazing team member and leader within our organization. We are proud to have him move into a new role as clinical supervisor, now managing and overseeing clinicians, caseworkers and the clinical treatment of our patients.

Congratulations Nick!

We are proud of you!

COVID-19 Coronavirus Response

Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic is a highly contagious infectious disease that has caused a global pandemic. The health and safety of our patients and healthcare providers is our top priority. We are constantly monitoring and updating our policies and procedures as this global pandemic progresses and as the Louisiana Department of Health notify us of changes to policy and procedures of Louisiana Licensed Healthcare Facilities. NIALife Center for Counseling and the Louisiana Department of Health, acknowledges the need for the continued facilitation of mental health services during the COVID-19 emergency declaration. As a result, our offices and services will remain open but with modifications. Please read carefully:

* Office staff will be limited to between 1-2 personnel at one time. If you contact our offices by phone and are unable to receive an answer, please leave a message and we will return your as soon as possible. Other office administrators will be working remotely from home.

* We are accepting patient visits via telehealth. If an office visit is necessary only the patient and one caregiver are allowed as directed by the Louisiana Department of Health

* If you need care, but cannot come to the office due to the new office restrictions, please call the office so that we may accommodate your needs in the safest manner possible. For new patients, intakes can be done over the phone and you can download our consent forms on our website and email or mail signed consent for services to along with a picture of your I.D and insurance card.  

* Most of our services are provided in the community. If you or a member of your household is ill (coughing, fever, congestion, respiratory problems) community visits will be suspended until services can resume in the safest manner possible. Our first priority is the health of our healthcare workers and patients. 

*We have developed new interoffice and community protocols in place to prevent the spread of infectious disease. Please kindly adhere to our new protocols and procedures to protect the safety and health of yourself and our caring and committed staff who remain committed to serving the community. Together, we can flatten the curve Louisiana by working together and showing the power, strength and resilience of our community!

The COVID-19 also known as Coronavirus is a serious and extremely contagious virus which has caused a global pandemic.

Risk to Public

To minimize the risk of spread, Louisiana officials are advising the public to practice social distancing by not gathering with large groups of people. Large events and mass gatherings can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in Louisiana and introduce the virus to new communities.

Examples of large events and mass gatherings include conferences, festivals, parades, concerts, sporting events, weddings, and other types of assemblies. These events can be planned not only by organizations and communities but also by individuals.

The Department of Health is also working with health care providers to promptly identify and evaluate any suspected cases.

Confirmed cases in Louisiana have ranged from mild illness (similar to a common cold) to severe pneumonia that requires hospitalization. So far, deaths have been reported mainly in older adults who had other health conditions.


For confirmed infections, reported illnesses have ranged from infected people with little to no symptoms (similar to the common cold) to people being severely ill and dying. Symptoms can include:

  • Fever

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing

CDC believes at this time that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 after exposure.

There is no specific antiviral treatment recommended for COVID-19 infection. People infected with COVID-19 should receive supportive care to help relieve symptoms.

How does the virus spread?

Health experts are still learning the details about how this new coronavirus spreads. Other coronaviruses spread from an infected person to others through:

  • Through respiratory droplets produced when coughing and sneezing

  • Close personal contact

  • Touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes
