About Dr. Lutz

Philosophy of Psychotherapy:

“I have found that successful psychotherapy involves collaboration between a well-trained, experienced and respectful psychotherapist and a motivated client/patient in a trusting relationship. Psychotherapy is a well-established method of helping people live more meaningful lives through healthier relationships with others. What creates a good psychotherapy outcome is the positive relationship between the therapist and the client/patient. I believe in the inherent goodness of each individual and in their ability to grow and live richer lives.”
