ABOUT THE PRACTICE

Our Approach

Lumen Therapy helps couples, individuals and families improve their most important relationships, health and well-being. Our therapists each have a long standing commitment to excellence in private practice, research and other therapeutic settings.

We have created our practice around the belief that each person deserves a safe, caring place in which to heal and grow. We see our role as guides and facilitators who will help you embrace your emotional responses to life’s twists and turns as we empower you with tools and resources you can use throughout your life. While healing takes time, you will feel empowered and stronger with each step you take in your therapy journey.

For many people, COVID-19 has created additional pressure and stress in life. We are attuned to the shifts our clients have experienced and can help you develop healthier coping responses and strategies for moving forward.

At Lumen, you will find a culturally responsive, racially conscious, LGBQ+ and trans/non-binary affirming atmosphere. We meet you where you are, and we help you celebrate your unique gifts and strengths.
