First, let's acknowledge what courage it takes to reach out for help. Any step towards growth, even if it feels small at the time, is monumental.
Counseling works because most of us can benefit from slowing down and examining our lives through a different lens. We often don't have someone in our support network who can sit with us in an honest, compassionate and non-judgmental way to explore the different facets of our current situation. This gentle inquiry into our lives can often illuminate changes we can make or insights that can bring us closer to our desired reality.
For the last ten years, I have counseled individuals through a variety of issues such as addiction, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, difficulties with anger, and parenting dilemmas. I'd be honored to support you through whatever brought you to this website.

Lucy is still the best therapist I’ve ever had. She’s the confidant I always needed, and continues to recognize my improvements and guide me when I need her most. She is the best ever!!

Lucy is a safe place to stand for anyone who needs one. She is calm and compassionate but also clear-headed and able to engage problems with a confident demeanor that makes me feel truly hopeful. I’m so glad I found her.

Lucy is great! This is my first time trying out counseling, but it’s been great to have validation that I’m working and doing things in the right direction! I recommend her to all my family.
