Professional statement

Lucy is a highly skilled and experienced clinical psychotherapist and master life coach located in San Francisco, CA who works with clients remotely throughout the state of California.

Lucy specializes in working with women in their 20s who want to create an intentional, meaningful, and deeply satisfying life. Many of Lucy’s clients begin therapy because they’re struggling with anxiety, overwhelm, self-doubt, and worried thoughts about the future.

Her clients often reflect the desire to learn how to make choices that'll set themselves up well for the future and design a life that's a reflection of their core values and deepest desires.

After receiving support from Lucy, clients report feeling more confident, self-assured, clear-headed, and have a deeper sense of trust & faith in the unfolding of their life path. They feel less consumed by self-doubt and feel a newfound sense of freedom, self-expression, and excitement about their future.

Lucy doesn’t believe in a one-sized fit approach to healing. Therefore, she creates specifically curated treatment plans for each of her clients depending on their goals, so they can experience the deepest levels of transformation possible in order to reach their personal development goals. (Treatment modalities include: EMDR, Inner Child Work, CBT, IFS, etc.)

Lucy also brings a holistic approach to mental health, encouraging her clients to consider their mind, body, and spirit as they progress through their personal development journey. Clients find a safe, warm space in session with Lucy to express their feelings, to heal their limiting beliefs, and to get excited about the life they're creating for themselves!

Message to clients

I believe we are meant to live a life that feels deeply satisfying and fulfilling.

But often times, old stuff gets in the way, challenges arise, we feel stuck, people trigger us, we doubt ourselves and our capabilities, we feel “behind” in life, and the list goes on! ;)

I hear you, and I get it—AND I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t always have to be that way. I promise.

I’m incredibly passionate about the work I do, because I know that committing to personal development work is the THING that actually moves the needle forward in increasing your overall well-being and satisfaction in life and has a ripple effect on ALL areas of your life (career, relationships, friendships, well-being, health, finances, etc.)

I’d love to support you in moving out of stuck-ness and guide you in designing a life that feels incredibly nourishing to your soul.
