Selene Lutschg

Counselor, LCMHC

Selene believes that therapy is a collaborative journey of self-discovery and integration. Its aim is wholeness. Selene draws on a variety of therapeutic frameworks to meet individuals where they are at and help them identify strengths and areas of growth in their life. Together we look at how thoughts, feelings and beliefs intersect with our life transitions and relational patterns and how they contribute to our sense of wellbeing, or misalignment. By uncovering the needs under our feelings, we learn to take personal responsibility for expressing ourselves accurately and authentically, allowing us to feel heard, valued and understood.

For individuals who have experienced trauma, Selene uses EMDR to work through the negative self-beliefs that limit our ability to live a healthy and authentic life. With couples and family work, she draw son communication skills which help untangle feelings and bring each person back to their core needs.

Her areas of expertise include anxiety, counseling for depression, domestic violence counseling, school issues, sex addiction counseling, transgender and women’s issues.
