My clients return over the years as life brings new challenges. They trust the work we have done because they have learned to trust who they are. Most of them wonder at first why I focus on the call of the heart. Why I invite them to play. And to make friends with parts of themselves they have been told to get rid of. And it shocks them when they discover they can learn to answer the call of the heart. Because i am older and have a broad spectrum of lived experience as well as an integrative approach, what I have to offer springs more directly from the deep unheard yearning of each unique client, than from one size fits all techniques. The deeper we go the more fun we have.

During difficult times, additional support can offer the breathing room we need to help us make sense of our circumstances.

Whether you have feelings of depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, or a challenging life transition, I want to support you every step of the way.

Then when you know better, do better.” During our sessions, I will meet you with compassion, kindness and make it a point to provide you with a safe place to process, ask questions and grow. I make space for each of my clients to recognize their unique individuality and aim to support and facilitate growth and resiliency. Let's get started!

As a clt centered therapist my role is to hold a mirror up as to allow the clt to witness their experience and offer reccomendations for tx plan. Also, empowering the clt to connect and use their strengths; support, spirituality or agnostic beliefs. I have used various modality interventions including meditation, visualization, and exposure acclimation. I have worked with 5 yo to 80+ yr old. My experience is broad, from post partum to end of life issues and many life stages in between. Whether its anxiety or depression. From bipolar to ocd or schizophrenia; i work at creating a safe environment where boundaries are clear and the clt feels free to discuss their issues in safety and privacy.

In navigating life's twists and turns, many of my potential clients find themselves at crossroads, uncertain of the next step forward.

What sets me apart is my commitment to seeing each person as an individual. Lutishia's approach to therapy is rooted in the power of a simple conversation.

*Specializes in working with Adults ONLY* Do you have counterproductive behaviors that create more issues than they solve? Do you recognize maladaptive thought patterns that disrupt and hinder you from reaching your goals? Only by taking the time to explore your inner-workings, can you begin to identify and eradicate what doesn’t work by developing strategies & moving towards what does, allowing a healthy authentic adult version of you to emerge. I personally believe it's the struggles we endure and the obstacles we overcome that build our character. It was my own personal traumas and difficulties experienced earlier in life & adolescence which initially started me on this path of whole person wellness and recovery. As a result, I've spent decades not just improving myself, but helping others reach their full potential as well. I've been a personal trainer, competitive kickboxer, consider myself a Christian Buddhist Wiccan (which I can explain- I swear), sound healer, breath work instructor, among others. As a therapist, I utilize a cumulation of MI, CBT/REBT, DBT, ACT, Schema Therapy, and EMDR, depending on client's needs and goals. Congratulations on taking the first step (or continuing) on your wellness journey!
