Loretta Luchau, MA LPC
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
As a body-centred therapist, I love helping my clients learn to be more intimately engaged with their feelings as a way to know themselves more deeply, which can lead to clear decisions for a more functional and fulfilling life.
