Bruna Lupo, M.S.: Bruna works with adolescents and adults, mostly women. She specializes in parenting and relationship issues, relational trauma (adult children that experienced continuous trauma from parents through neglect or abuse; individuals that were in an abusive relationship, or individuals living with people suffering from addiction, or mental illness), and attachment issues. She also works with clients experiencing mood disorders, anxiety, panic and suicidality.

As a team, Providence provides outstanding care when working with families, especially families who have experienced trauma. All of our licensed therapists have been trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (training specific to trauma). Everyone has a shared desire to help not only the individual they are working with to recover, but also to see the family unit mend as a whole. We understand that when something terrible happens to one member of the family, it can impact the entire family. Each family member may respond differently to the same crisis. Often, this can change the family dynamic. To help make this shift a healthy process, we will work with the individuals as well as provide family counseling sessions.
