Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, ACS, RPT-S, CCMHC
Parents, my heart goes out to you! It's so hard to watch your child struggle through anxiety, challenging behaviors, school related issues, depression, or traumatic experiences. It's tough to figure out what to do and how best to support them. You can feel proud of the steps you're taking, right now, to care for your child! It is so compassionate and courageous to recognize your child's need for assistance and to respond to that need in the way that you are.
Greetings! I am Anne Luckinbill, LPC. Luckinbill Counseling has a team of caring therapists who are skilled at assessing and diagnosing mental health concerns based on current struggles and your historical information. Your concerns about behavior, emotion, personality, and relationships will be treated using Emotionally Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Trauma concerns will be addressed with an understanding that trauma impacts daily function and interactions. Likewise, early relationships and attachment patterns impact our current relationships. We serve children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples.
Has everyday become a challenge and exhausting? Is it a struggle to get started each morning or do you have a sense of worry and fear when trying to do everyday tasks? I understand what you or your child is experiencing. You have constant stress or worry or your child is avoidant or having tantrums that are difficult to manage. Maybe you or your child are frustrated easily, feel tense and have an overwhelming sense of exhaustion. I can help you or your child learn new tools to find lasting relief and confidence again. Together we will figure out why this is happening and how to navigate these challenges successfully.
As a person centered and trauma focused therapist, I enjoy helping others who are in need of peace, recovery, and healing. I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults struggling with eating disorders, body image, depression, grief, anxiety, mood disorders, and other co-occurring issues in multiple levels of care through a trauma lens. I have a background as a school social worker, medical social worker in which I bring tremendous experience in working with complex family situations, multidisciplinary teams, and through a lens of growth and change towards recovery and strength.
We would probably all like to be living our best life but many of us can’t quite figure out how to make that happen. Maybe we find ourselves stuck in unhealthy patterns of communicating and we don't know how to change. We might have personal goals we are trying to reach but just can seem to make them happen. Perhaps we have trauma that we need to resolve that has left an impact on our day-to-day functioning. Maybe we are looking for connection with others but continue feeling disconnected and unfulfilled by our personal relationships. It is possible to experience satisfaction and fulfillment in our daily lives.
My goodness it is hard to be a young child, teen or caregiver! I am passionate about working with children, teenagers or young adults on whatever issues they may have; self-esteem, ADHD, Autism, anger, depression, anxiety, peer conflict, emotional turmoil, young pregnancy, eating disorders, those impacted by divorce or separation or trauma. I understand the impacts on social functioning that mental health has for children and teens; I am here to help. Caregiver burnout is common and having someone to vent to is helpful. I have also worked with teenagers and adults struggling with addiction. Asking for help is the first step.
We believe it takes small steps to work towards improving your quality of life. We specialize in working with children, adolescents, teens, adults, and families.

Most of our participants enjoy integrating the horses into counseling sessions while others prefer the comfort of our office on site.

I consider Well Care Coaching to be an invitation. It is not a push or a pull, but a chance to find your own rhythm and harmony. Things may seem off balance or even impossible right now. I suppose that is what brought you here. And now that you are here, I suggest you consider what it might be like to have your feet planted exactly where you want them, even and especially during this time in your life.

Psychotherapy helps people achieve what they want in their lives by mobilizing their energy in a positive way and problem solving the things that stand in their way. Emotional issues from the past can be worked through to happier healthier functioning. Improved mood and functioning without anxiety can be achieved.
Approach: My training is a blend of Cognitive Behavioral and Psychodynamic therapies. These backgrounds allow working at symptom reduction while also helping people understand their past and developing more effective ways of achieving their goals for the future. I feel my strength is in being able to meet clients where they are and, at their pace, discover how to bring about the changes that are needed to live a more fulfilling and productive life.
Everything seems complicated and difficult. You know what you “should” be feeling about your life, but you just can’t seem to get there. You can’t shake that feeling of not being good enough, and not being in control of yourself and your relationships. Your using perfectionism to control your feelings of shame and fear.
Do you wake up in the mornings with a feeling of dread? Does it seem like you can never fully let your guard down? I know these struggles, because I’ve helped people work through them for over 15 years. Many of my clients have dealt with traumas, anxiety, depression, or relationship issues. I find they often go hand in hand. At some point it all becomes too much, and it’s time to get experienced support. I offer treatment for those who want to overcome high stress, effects of trauma, depression, and more. As you begin this road of healing, you can find the relief and confidence to live your life with more confidence and less fear.
To be seen and known by others is an incredible feeling of connection but it means being authentic and vulnerable. Sadly, we live in a time with the illusion of connection while being more disconnected than ever. You may feel disconnected from others and even from yourself. Though you are a gift to this world, it is often blocked and unexpressed. This may leave you feeling alone and invisible. The truth is, you may be starving for deeper connection and that starvation looks like depression, anxiety, stress, and more. When you are living disconnected, you are abandoning yourself.
** At this time I am not accepting new clients. ** I feel passionate about helping children, adolescents, young adults and families build healthy trusting relationships, improve communication patterns, and establish a sense of balance back into their lives. I strive to help parents feel more empowered in their role, improve parent-child relationships, and form healthy attachments with each other. My approach is collaborative and supportive while working with clients to identify areas of change and develop treatment goals.
