Therapists guide clients through various exercises that help them use their creativity and imaginations to process through grief, anger, sadness, frustration, disappointment, and more. Therapists at Lumiere Counseling also offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and teach clients how to monitor their thought patterns for negative self-talk or cognitive distortions, all through a positive psychology lens.

By teaching effective coping skills and self care, therapists at Lumiere Counseling ensure that clients know how to manage difficult emotions and enjoy positive emotions.
