We all need help from time to time. Let Lutz Counseling Services be your guide with issues such as getting the kids to do thier homework, getting the teenager out of their room, learning to cope with your job, and learning techniques for anxiety and depression.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have a passion for working with children, adults, and adolescents conquering many of life challenges such as stress, low self esteem, family relational issues, loss, anxiety and depression.
I specialize in play and sand play therapies, two approaches that can help a child increase positive behaviors and healthy communication skills with their caregivers.
