However, because of the innate power of the brain + body, humans have a tremendous ability to heal. Just as the nature of traumas differ from person to person, so does the healing process. At Flourish Therapy we recognize individuals are wholly unique, and yet also share similarity in their body’s innate ability to restore what has been lost.

recovering from the impacts of survival stress + trauma can feel like an impossible, out of reach dream...
Work with both a Master's Level Practitioner and Mind-Body Practitioner in a 3 or 6 month package.
Trauma deeply impacts the body + mind’s functioning and many find themselves not only needing help navigating out of the effects of trauma, but also in rewiring their nervous system to experience optimal physical functioning.
It is challenging to be working with multiple practitioners to heal, often taking you in conflicting directions. The Signature program skillfully helps you simultaneously address your physical + emotional + mental health needs. We collaboratively work with you directly, as a holistic health team, to pursue together the healing that your body is designed to experience. With Lauren’s 15 years in the medical field as a RN + a Nutritional Therapist + Mind Body Practitioner, and Luke’s decade of work as a clinical counselor, they will provide comprehensive assessment, support + guidance as you heal your mind + body.
If you experience health symptoms/syndromes such as chronic fatigue, insomnia, the many forms of chronic pain, digestive issues, anxiety, autoimmunity, chronic infections, chemical/food sensitivities, ect, this program is a great option for you.
Once you complete the Signature Program, you have access to continue to work one-on-one with either practitioner.
Work with a Master's-Level Practitioner 1-on-1 in a three or six month package.
When nervous system dysregulation is impacting practically every part of your life, it can be so challenging to find your way back to peace + abundance. To have clarity on which steps to take. To develop the support your body needs to feel safe again. To find regulation + begin to experience it as your new norm. To become free from the vortex of endless + suffering.
The Signature Program provides comprehensive trauma healing through a transformative “bottom-up” + “top-down” approach when you desire well-rounded support navigating the healing process. No impersonal courses or workbooks to shift through alone, rather personalized, highly skilled one-on-one care. We come alongside you, right where you are, and walk with you towards a place of restored safety, regulation + empowerment.
If you experience regular symptoms of nervous system dysregulation such as overwhelm, anxiety, urgency, pressure, fragility, multiple and intense triggers, panic, shut down, anger, avoidance, which really affect your relationships and overall well being then this program is a great option for you. (If you experience these along with chronic health conditions, consider the Signature Program with Brain Retraining.)
Relationships can be such a fulfilling part of being a human, while they also have a unique ability to cause tremendous confusion + pain. Misunderstood stories, dysregulated bodies + protective walls can cause significant rifts in relationships with those we love. Couples counseling can be a tremendously helpful process of deepening understanding + connection with oneself and one's partner. Luke helps the couple practice the art of attunement and responsiveness first to self, and then among partners. Learning this delicate dance between souls leads to the deeply satisfying intimacy that humans long to have with those we love most.
Work with Luke as an individual or couple, over a three-day intensive in person or virtually.
Don’t have time to invest months into working with a practitioner? Have the challenges you are facing gotten to the point where you feel some urgency about understanding and addressing them? Intensives provide a therapeutically immersive environment to truly catapult you in your healing process. Discover life-changing insights + connection to your heart, body + mind as you are supported in taking those steps in becoming your healthiest self.
Interested in making a trip to Northern Thailand to have beauty and goodness surrounding you as you take part in the intensive? The area we live in is well suited to tourists and English-speakers. We are glad to make accommodation recommendations.
Yes you can. While the work we do is of a comprehensive nature, there are many other areas of health and well being that you may be exploring apart from our work together. They will likely complement each other well. Regarding medical choices, we will help you navigate these decisions with the help of your health care provider. If you are on extensive supplementation/dietary protocols we will help you get to the minimum amount of external supports, as your body begins to come back online and do what it was designed to do- make you vibrantly healthy.
Sure! Luke works with individuals or couples in 3 or 6 months packages, as well as 2.5 day intensives for those that want to see progress more quickly. These are great options for those who are passionate about pursuing emotional health, but do not have chronic health issues such as chronic fatigue, insomnia, the many forms of chronic pain, digestive issues, significant anxiety, autoimmunity, chronic infections, chemical/food sensitivities, ect.
We strongly believe in the importance + effectiveness of addressing trauma as a significant part in healing from chronic illness, pain + anxiety. Because of this we require all clients who are pursuing physical healing to first take part in a 3 or 6 month Flourish Signature Program. Once this has been completed, depending on their needs, clients are welcome to work with either Lauren or Luke separately, or continue working with them both in another 3-6 month package.
Flourish Therapy prioritizes holistic healing as we support our clients mind + body through many different therapeutic modalities. It’s the comprehensive + collaborative nature of our work with clients that makes Flourish distinct from many other practices. Many practices that focus on the mind, don’t feel comfortable with addressing body-based symptoms, and vice-versa. We also hold a deep belief in the power of the client to bring about the healing they long to see in their life. The benefits of empathetic listening, attunement, coregulation and care by the practitioner greatly facilitates this process.
If paying upfront is a challenge, we understand and offer you the chance to purchase our packages and spread the payment over multiple installments. Email us directly if you would like to purchase a package in installments. We also offer trauma healing groups regularly throughout the year, which significantly reduces the cost of therapy. If these options aren't financially possible for you at this time, we have multiple sources of free content to help assist you in your healing. Check out the written content + videos on Instagram, Facebook, our Youtube channel, or our Filled to Flourish podcast as well. It is an honor to help support you at any level we are able to.
We are acutely aware of how the body can be retraumatized when it attempts to navigate trauma stories and their impacts on the body, without the inner resourcing + outward supports. In light of this, your experience and safety is prioritized over any specific “goal” or objective. We prioritize creating an environment where the nervous system begins to relax and build resilience prior to wading into the specifics of your story. We like to see it as guiding the dysregulated self into safety + regulation first, and then exploring the reasons why it became dysregulated in the first place.
Our practice is primarily a global virtual practice, although we do offer in-office sessions as well. Everything is set up to conveniently work with clients all over the world. We have office hours that should provide good options for clients residing anywhere in the world. Many people in the Western hemisphere find the time zone we reside in to be convenient for their schedules as we can see them in the evening, whereas many practitioners don’t offer evening hours.
We are a trauma-informed, abuse-informed, anti-racist, LGBTQ+ ally, culturally sensitive practice. We are open to work with and supportive of all people regardless of age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, national origin, race, religion and sexual orientation.
