Professional statement

Lumiere Counseling is a therapy practice located in Aurora, CO. Therapists at Lumiere Counseling specialize in helping kids, adolescents, and adults cope with the difficulties found throughout life. Many of the clients at Lumiere Counseling want to grow their mental health and learn how to control their emotions, so they don’t have to feel overwhelmed or frustrated when things don’t go their way. Therapists at Lumiere Counseling also work with clients who have depression or PTSD.

Lumiere Counseling offers clients sandtray, play, and art therapy. These therapy modalities offer clients a way of expressing themselves – their thoughts, their emotions – that’s more than just talking about them. 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.

Lumiere Counseling strives to equip clients with the tools they need for emotional regulation. 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. They provide a safe, nonjudgmental space for clients to show up authentically and work through their issues with a compassionate, empathetic therapist.

Message to clients

Working in the mental health field with age ranges 8 years old and up, I began to learn from my clients this is not a "one size" fits all type of work. I have become passionate about creating treatment plans and techniques that fit the needs of my clients facing a wide range of hardships in a judgmental free space! My approach is to help my clients feel comfortable enough to open up with whatever they might be facing. At times communicating how we feel could be something hard for clients to do or explain which is when I will use a nonverbal approach to help clients release what may be hard for them to put into words.
