Introduction: If you are suffering from relationship issues, depression, anxiety, PTSD or personal losses in your life, I bring 35 years of experience as a professional therapist who has worked with these types of problems. A new focus in my practice has been to look at the "Intersection of Sexuality and Spirituality" since all of us would like to have a more "complete relationship". I use a variety of therapy modalities such as Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Grief Therapy, The Emotional Freedom Technique, Family and Couple Therapy and Guided Imagery. Life throws us a lot of curve balls including the death of loved ones, health problems, job losses, relationship issues, financial hardships and difficulties raising our children. I have had personal experience in all of these areas which allows me to better understand your current emotional, physical, spiritual and intellectual challenges. I currently have a podcast with a listenership of over 3,000 where I connect people with other professionals so they can find a healthier mind/body balance in their life. The show focuses on the emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual aspects of our life and how important it is to keep these areas in balance in order to live our best life. I am also a Reiki Master and Energy Healer and started Transcendent Way to assist clients with the removal of blockages within their own energy field. ON A FINAL NOTE: I DON'T accept insurance but I am willing to work with people on a discounted rate for multiple sessions.

Lucy is so sympathetic to my anxiety and depression. She offers advice that can be applied to my every day life. My symptoms have declined since beginning my therapy sessions with Lucy. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a kind and knowledgeable therapist.

Lucy has had many years of counseling experience. Her professional approach helped me resolve some interpersonal problems that I have been wrestling with for years. She helped bring a more positive perspective to my life. My life is more joyful, and meaningful as a result of my time with Lucy.

The experience working with Lucy was excellent and exactly what I needed. She is very professional with a great depth and breadth of counseling experience. Her abilities to see and deeply understand the situation are so valuable and allowed me to grow through a difficult situation. I highly recommend her to anyone going through some tough life situations. A great listener as well.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I have been a therapist for over 35 years specializing in anxiety, depression,grief and bereavement and relationship issues. In this past year, Covid has done a number on all of us. Losses have been experienced by everyone from the death of loved ones to job losses, home displacement, friends and family separations and school issues. Health has also been impacted and finances devastated. I work with my clients in a holistic way that addresses their emotional, physical, mental and spiritual needs where they will find the tools they need to live their best life in today's every changing world.

    I hold a Masters of Arts Degree in Family Therapy from Lindenwood University. I have received advanced training in PTSD, Anxiety and Depression, Stress Management, Suicide Prevention, Understanding Grief and Loss and Talking to Children about Grief and Loss. I have been a national speaker for several large organizations and founded a program for widows and widowers. I was also a Grant Recipient for "The Thinker's Edge" program to reduce recidivism. Additionally.I currently consult with families who have health related problems along with their mental health issues and I'm the host for the "Synergy Connection Show" on Spotify, iHeart Radio, Google Radio and Apple Podcast.
