Lucia has a Doctorate in Health Psychology and has previously worked in a multidisciplinary team in a busy public hospital in Melbourne. During her time there, Lucia supported inpatients and outpatients managing chronic kidney disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cardiac issues and stroke and the impact of these on mental health and wellbeing. Lucia’s special area of interest and expertise is working with adults who are adjusting to new health diagnoses or who are managing chronic health issues. She is also able to more broadly support those managing issues relating to anxiety, depression, and adjustment.
Lucia is experienced with delivering a range of interventions that have a sound evidence base for alleviating distress.
An intake call can be offered prior to the initial consultation to discuss your concerns and to ensure Lucia is best placed to support you. Please note that Lucia has limited availability.
