My Approach to Helping

Welcome. I'm Lucrezia Mangione and my private practice is Handcrafted Health, llc. I specialize in holistic psychotherapy and counseling that's centered in supporting and empowering adults.

Working in the DC-Metro area, I work with people who come from varied backgrounds such as highly sensitive persons (HSP), caregivers, helpers, health care professionals, coaches, consultants, nurses, lawyers, IT professionals, bankers, teachers, employees of our Federal Government and more.

As a Board Certified Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Maryland and Virginia, my passion is providing holistic psychotherapy and counseling for mental health wellness to address stress, life transitions, anxiety and depression.

As a Board Certified TeleMental Health Professional for Maryland and Virginia residents, offering counseling services using HIPAA-secure video conferencing in real-time makes giving yourself the gift of counseling a little easier and traveling a little less.

Holistic psychotherapy and counseling can be supportive and may help with calming your mind-body senses, reducing anxiousness and improving mood, supporting life transitions and grief, improving coping skills, and helping in rediscovering an improved path of self-care and self-compassion.

Holistic psychotherapy and counseling can be an opportunity for you to deepen your sense of who you are and returning to feeling more centered and grounded in what's important to you.

Finding a good fit therapist is critical. The alliance between an individual and their counselor is the bedrock for therapy. You can learn more about me, work, my style and credentials at my website.

Let me know if I can answer any questions for you. If you're saying to yourself "I'm ready to address my stress, anxiety &or sadness. I want to support my mental health wellness & feel more resilient" then contact me and let's see if we're a good fit.

By the way, to learn more about holistic therapy, you're invited to explore my website where you can find quality information about topics related holistic counseling and mind-body therapy.

A special note for LGPCs: I'm also an Approved Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor Supervisor for LGPCs here in Maryland.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

I feel the pain of suffering has the potential to be psycho-therapeutic and healing. It can be transformative. The relationship between a person who chooses therapy and the therapist becomes a safe place where the person's process becomes focused on what they want to change.

The key ingredient is the alliance between both the person and the therapist. This alliance of help is a partnership of human helping human; with empathy and skill a therapist helps to facilitate a person's self-discovery and growth.

Both people in the helping relationship have a clear role that serves the therapy. The person's role is simply one of willingness. Pain, conflict and suffering motivates herhim to come to therapy. Once there, her story, her history, both known and unknown, as well as her expectations are explored. Being a willing partner in her or his own exploration brings about self-discovery and change.

The therapist's role is that of a facilitator who assists the person in hearing their inner and outer dialogue. The therapist helps the person to translate, understand, integrate and apply this learned wisdom to achieve identified goals and ultimately enriches daily life and living. It is a process.

The safety of a therapeutic relationship creates opportunity. A place for the person to consciously and directly explore inner feelings, thoughts and experiences in order to achieve a conscious understanding. Pain heals. Insight arises. Transformation happens.
