About me

Greetings! My name is Lucian, and I am a passionate, caring, and effective licensed therapist in Delaware. I am eager to help you reach your full potential. I bring a broad array of life experience and expertise, into the therapeutic relationship. Through empathy and understanding, you will gain a unique perspective into your world. I have 7 years of professional experience and worked in a variety of settings with different populations. As a therapist, I am here to intervene. I am not here simply to listen, or allow you to have a cathartic experience. I implement the Strength Base Approach, Cognitive Behavioral approach, and Mindfulness approach. These approaches are goal-oriented, directive, and problem-solving in nature. It takes a skillful therapist to help clients make the connections between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I strive for the opportunity to build and maintain a solid therapeutic alliance with my clients. I approach therapy as a healing process, helping to answer deep-rooted unanswered questions we have about ourselves. You are the expert of your narrative, and I am your creative outlet ready to listen and help you find solutions because we find strength in sharing our experiences. I value honesty, the importance of a working relationship, and your integrity, dignity, and worth. So, let’s do this!

Lucian is an amazing therapist! I’ve only had her for a very short time but her investment in me keeps me in-line to invest in myself. She seeks out opportunities for me to reflect on and provides activities outside of our sessions to help me process things on a deeper level. She provides self work assignments which helps me not to be idle. She always follows up and checks in on me to make sure I am well and she is always available to my questions. I would definitely recommend her services!

Lucian is amazing! I feel like I could talk to her all day. If we had the time, I’m sure we could get a lot accomplished. She’s very kind and compassionate and easy to open up to. I feel like the perfect person was chosen for me and I’m very grateful. I’m so excited for the results that I know I will have with her guidance.
