Lupe Serrano, LMFTA
Lupe is gifted in supporting individuals and families as they grow and becoming exactly who they want to be while working through obstacles. Childhood and young adulthood can be filled with exploration, and with that comes big changes, stresses, and a shift in identity and dependency. Navigating the first three decades of life is not one size fits all. Whether it’s learning to get along with friends, thriving at school, dealing with broken relationships, building lasting relationships, or navigating through trauma, we all need extra support. Young couples often seek out Lupe for insightful, fun, and impactful premarital coaching.
Lupe has unique experiences working with youth who struggle with identity, anxiety, depression, trauma, and navigating relationships. As humans, we are not taught how to parent, how to be a kid, how to be a partner, or even just to be your best self. We do the best we can, and when “the best you can” falls short, Lupe provides a warm shoulder of grace and insight.
Whether you are a child, an individual or a couple, Lupe promotes resiliency to all to ensure that the burdens that are heavy can be lightened together. Lupe is a graduate of Appalachian State University with a Master's degree in Marriage & Family Therapy.
