Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Lucie has experience and passion in working with clients of all ages on a wide variety of presenting issues, such as coping with previous trauma (including abuse and neglect), mental illness (such a depression and anxiety), grief, and questions regarding sexual orientation, gender expression, and identity.
Prior to obtaining a clinical license in Marital and Family Therapy, Lucie received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Spalding University and Master’s degree in Marital and Family Therapy from Northwestern University. Before joining Mandala House full-time Lucie worked at Home of the Innocents where she conducted family and individual sessions with children, adolescents, and their families.
Lucie strongly believes in the value of education and she continues to learn through collaboration with colleagues and frequent participation in workshops and trainings to enhance her knowledge of current research and practice of psychotherapy. She recently completed a series of trainings required to obtain an LGBT Health Certificate from the University of Louisville.
In addition to her professional activities, Lucie believes in the importance of wellness and support of medical research and can be seen joining 5K races in the area, such as the annual Race for the Cure (a national fundraising event for breast cancer).
As a psychotherapist, Lucie places value on the strength of the therapeutic relationship and works collaboratively with her clients to create resiliency, new life perspective, and hope for positive change.
