ABOUT JACQUELINE LUMER, MFT
Throughout my education, licensure, and personal growth, my primarily focus has been couples counseling, sex therapy, family therapy and individuals with relationship issues. I have worked with partners in both monogamous and non-monogamous partnerships, LGBTQ+ individuals and partners, kids, their parents, divorce, blended families, partner’s with depression or anxiety, but always through the lens of attachment-based modalities, such as IMAGO and Emotionally Focused Therapy. I draw tools from Gottman methods and Non-Violent Communication and Mindfulness-based CBT. And am always deepening my knowledge within the framework of relationships, such as the current efforts towards a sex therapy certification. With a dual-masters degree that included Art Therapy, my thesis was to create empathy between a couple using a directive to address Family of Origin issues and attachment style. I am also trained in EMDR for healing trauma and faulty beliefs and relational blocks. I am certified in sex therapy from California Institute of Integral Studies. I work with individuals and partners and am LGBTQ, polyamory, kink/BDSM aware and accepting and trauma informed.
