Beth Luvisia, LMSW

Supervised by Monique Dunn LCSW-S

I

am a Licensed Master of Social Work (LMSW) in the state of Texas. Originally born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya, I moved to the United States, living first in Minnesota and then in Massachusetts. I earned my undergraduate degree in Psychology and English from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and my master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work. Recently, I relocated to Houston and am excited to make this vibrant city my new home!

At Destination Therapy, I serve as an associate therapist, offering individual counseling to clients across Texas. Our sessions can be conducted in person at our Houston location and online via telehealth for clients residing in Texas.

I specialize in helping individuals who struggle with perfectionism, life transitions, anxiety, shame, interpersonal challenges, burnout, and various forms of trauma, including intergenerational, racial, and attachment trauma.

My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where clients can explore their feelings, share their experiences, and feel seen. When you feel safe and seen in a therapeutic relationship, you have the opportunity to embark on self-exploration with compassion, patience, and understanding. I use a collaborative approach, working with clients to cultivate awareness of their strengths and expand their capacity to understand and navigate the world through a new lens.

As a therapist, I believe you are the expert in your own life. My approach is to meet you where you are, walking alongside you on your healing journey while holding you accountable. I strive to create a non-judgmental space where you can fully express yourself, uncover insights, and find the strength and clarity needed to navigate your challenges.

Currently accepting new clients for individual therapy.

A little more about me.

My approach to therapy is rooted in psychodynamic and attachment principles. I help clients understand how their early relationships and experiences may have influenced their current challenges. By exploring these early experiences, we can gain insight into how they inform their current relational patterns. Recognizing these cyclical behaviors allows us to build healthier and more transformative connections.

I also utilize the Liberation Health Model to help clients understand how their personal challenges are often linked to broader societal and systemic issues. This model is grounded in the belief that individual well-being cannot be fully achieved without addressing the external factors that impact our lives.  Additionally, I incorporate aspects of attachment theory to recognize the impact of attachment styles on interpersonal dynamics, and I use strength-based approaches and cognitive-behavioral techniques to provide practical skills and strategies. These combined approaches aim to empower clients, offering tools to manage challenges and foster personal growth.

I utilize the following theoretical models and clinical approaches, including:
