Lucero Morse

Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, NCC


As a Multi-Lingual Mental Health Counselor, I've had the opportunity of working with English, Spanish, and Portuguese speaking populations. I've received extensive Play Therapy training and I am about to become a Registered Play Therapist. I specialize in working with Major Depressive Disorder, Trauma, Personality Disorders, ADHD, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Family, and Group relationships. I firmly believe that people can heal through the power of the therapeutic alliance between the client and the therapist, while implementing new skills that will improve their situations.

Emotional health and wellness are essential to living a fulfilling and meaningful life. My goal as your counselor is to stand alongside you through the ups, downs, twists, and turns of life and find meaning-making and community. I believe the foundation of any successful counseling experience starts with the therapeutic relationship and I will work to gain your trust, confidence, and respect through a multiculturally oriented approach towards helping and healing.

Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, NCC, CPT


My primary therapeutic approach is rooted in a person-centered approach. I also utilize different therapeutic perspectives such as attachment theory, cognitive therapies, EMDR, and dialectical behavior therapy. I believe every person is unique so I individualize therapy to meet each person’s specific needs. I believe that everyone is the expert of their own lives and everyone within themselves has the capabilities of reaching their full potential. Through a collaborative therapeutic experience, my purpose is to create a safe space where you can express the fullness of who you are without judgment, be a guide on your healing journey, and provide you with the necessary tools to reach your full potential. I value the importance of the counseling relationship and believe that when a person receives unconditional positive regard, empathy, and safety is when healing can begin.

Master Social Worker, LMSW (elegible)


I have a Masters in Clinical Social Work from Smith College. My experience and background involves working with teenagers, adults, and families in residential treatment as well as in community mental health settings.


Therapy is not one size fits all; therefore, I take an eclectic, psychodynamic approach to working with clients. I value creativity and humor and believe in building meaningful relationships while putting at the center the client’s strengths throughout the healing process. I am passionate about working with teenagers and their families, queer folks, and people interested in alternative relationship structures such as ethical non-monogamy and polyamory.


My experience expands across working with folks on issues around anxiety, depression, trauma within childhood, PTSD, relational concerns, life transitions, providing support within learning disabilities, and sexuality/ gender exploration.
