the Lumina Group
Dr. Hart selects therapists for their skill, maturity, and commitment to the highest professional and ethical standards in psychotherapy.

We are dedicated to providing quality mental health services while giving great consideration to matching your needs with the most qualified therapist to address your particular needs.

Multicultural awareness, knowledge, and skills are emphasized and valued by the members of The Lumina Group.

The Lumina Group itself is comprised of individuals with diverse cultural backgrounds, each experienced in serving a multitude of ethnic groups.

what we offer

Difficulties and struggles can occur in life that are, at times, difficult to overcome alone. We may find we are overwhelmed or feel disconnected. At the The Lumina Group, we strive to provide psychotherapy that helps our clients find more support and freedom in their lives. 

We take great care in providing a safe relationship where our clients have the opportunity to engage their lives and rekindle what may feel lost or absent. The Lumina Group offers the space and commitment of an honest and collaborative relationship in which to journey toward healing and self-discovery. We aspire to help our clients cultivate a life that sustains and enlivens them. Our St. Louis counseling center is a meaningful and practical place to restore order and build comfort.

Therapists and counselors in The Lumina Group can also offer help in the areas of substance abuse, issues related to grief and loss, physical handicaps, relationship issues, and sexual abuse (victims and perpetrators).

In addition, members of The Lumina Group can help you address job related problems such asjob stress and anxiety, the need for conflict relution within a job setting, and how to deal with multiple responsibilities at home and at work.

Public Speaking events are conducted by some therapists within The Lumina Group. If there is a specific topic of interest to you as an individual or group, we would be happy to discuss addressing that issue or topic.

Community Resourcing is viewed by The Lumina Group as a necessary component in the mental health arena. Therefore, contact with other therapists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, social workers, and other professionals is a large part of the attention provided to our clients.

Licensure supervision is available by the Licensed Practitioners of the Healing Arts (LPHA's) on staff.
