I am a mental health counselor licensed in Florida with over 14 years of experience working as a counselor and family consultant. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD, child welfare involvement, domestic violence, and substance use/misuse. I also helped many people who have experienced physical/sexual trauma or emotional abuse. I may have extensive experience in may areas; however, relational and couples, have been my area of focus, which I have a proven track record of success. Please don't give up without seeking out a professional for support. Every relationship goes through rough times, and sometimes, you just need a non-biased support to walk you through the rough path.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone and anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My eclectic therapeutic approach combines solution focused, cognitive-behavioral, narrative, psychodynamic, mindfulness, and rational-emotive counseling. I will individualize my therapeutic technique, dialog, and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I am really enjoying my sessions with Lucia. She takes time to listen carefully. She asks the right types of questions to really make me think about my own thoughts and actions and why I do things. So far, she has given me some really good strategies to cope with what I am going through. Her lines of communication are always open and I feel she is very non judgmental about my circumstances, giving fair and honest feedback. I will definitely be continuing to attend the sessions with her.
