Fausta Luchini

(MA, LPP)

About Me

I'm a Licensed Psychological Practitioner in Kentucky, where I've lived all my life. I have a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Spalding University and over 20 years experience as a therapist. I've worked primarily with adults experiencing depression, anxiety, and difficulty related to past trauma. I've also worked with many people experiencing problems with anger, rapid mood changes, low self-esteem, and relationship issues.

I use a strengths based approach, and I believe that we all have our own answers within us, even if they're not always easy to figure out. People come to therapy to seek help because they're uncomfortable with their lives as they are. Maybe you want to feel better emotionally, reach a specific goal for yourself, identify what goals you want to set, or just explore your own perspective on life. This may be a path to healing from past trauma, or a venture into new territory. I have training and experience in evidence-based treatment including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills. This lets me offer the type of help that's directly connected to the issues you're having. It lets me offer help that we know works.

Finally, effective therapy is based on a strong relationship between the therapist and client. As a therapist, I bring my expertise -what I learned in school and what I've experienced in life - to the table. You are the expert on yourself - so you bring what you know about your self and the things you've already learned in your life. Together, we will look at where you've been and where you're headed. Together, we figure out what tools you need and the best way for you to get to where you want to be.

Fausta has been such an incredible source of comfort and direction for me and I can't say enough good things about her! She is understanding, wise and kind. I have had three counselors in the last ten years, and although the other counselors were good, Fausta seems to be the best "match" I've ever had. I can't recommend her enough!

I have very much enjoyed working with Fausta Luchini. This is my first experience with this type of counseling. I not only enjoy working with Fausta, but I really like the flexibility Betterhelp offers me. It is so nice to have flexibility with sessions and email Fausta whenever I need to share. This is really helping me through a really difficult time in my life and I am glad I found it. Fausta is patient, understanding and has had really good insights into my situation.

Fausta made going through therapy a lot less daunting to me. She takes the time to acknowledge every thing I mention during each session and helps work out each and every issue I may be facing. Working with Fausta has truly been a huge help for me, she is an amazing therapist!

Fausta is very knowledgeable and caring. She listens and helps me realize things I didn't even know about myself. Sometimes my mind can seem to be going a million different ways, she really helps me figure out what all those things are but also how they're related.

I can't say enough good things about Fausta. Working with her has changed my life. She is remarkably non-judgmental and empathetic.

She’s really nice and understanding. It seems like what I say or communicate, she’s able to process and respond in a validating way. It really means a lot.
