Lucia works with adult clients individually.

  • Attachment issues
  • Relationship difficulties

Lucia works primarily from an attachment perspective and is undertaking specialist training in a short-term dynamic psychotherapy called Affect-State Therapy (AST). AST works to help people identify, understand, and address underlying (cognitive, emotional and behavioural) patterns that stem from disrupted early life attachment experiences.

Other therapies can be drawn upon including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectal Behaviour Therapy (DBT).

Lucia has worked with individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds across the lifespan within various settings including private practice, high school, and private mental health hospitals. .

Lucia is currently accepting new adult clients.
