Dr. Ronaye Calvert Conley

DR. RONAYE CALVERT CONLEY
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

I have learned the value of getting away from the limitations of traditional treatment modalities which often fail to meet clients at the intersection of where they need us most – real life. Whether discreetly meeting clients face to face in real-world settings or forming meaningful connections and success plans with clients around the globe, I recognized a critical gap in the standard treatment model and made it my business to fill it, allowing for the successful outcomes that can only be attained when we feel understood, heard, and supported by those that will stop at nothing to see us achieve the life we deserve. While championing clients to take action toward living differently, providing them with advocacy and real-time support and guidance, I feel honored and deeply rewarded to witness the self-esteem and renewed sense of purpose that emerges throughout this work.

Dr. Calvert Conley is the Executive Director of LIVE Treatment, a Concierge, 1:1, treatment program that creates powerful change around the globe. She earned her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology and has had extensive experience working in the addiction recovery field, disordered eating programs, and the LGBTQ+ community. She has a deep understanding of how personal issues or beliefs may motivate or hinder us and approaches each unique struggle with sensitivity and keen insight. Stemming from her Directorship in prominent Dual Diagnosis treatment centers, Dr. Calvert Conley is a skilled Trauma Specialist, leading others to a deeper understanding of working to resolve and grow from histories of emotional, physical, and/or sexual trauma.

Dr. Calvert Conley’s personal philosophy is not to help clients focus on what is wrong with them, rather to help them acknowledge and embrace what is right with them, while creating a plan for their personal success.
