Guiding You Back To Your True Self

Online Therapy in Ohio with Sonseray Luster, MSSA, LISW-S

Thank you for taking the first step. I acknowledge the bravery it takes to be here, seeking help for your future.

Hi, I’m Sonseray Luster, a psychotherapist and fellow human being. I work with adults who are going through a challenging time, struggling with anxiety and depression, and who are ready to make a change.

Like you, I have been through my own human experiences that have shaped me into the therapist and person I am today. I am grateful for my history and what I have been through and hopeful for my future. It is my honor and privilege to be in this career. And I do not take it lightly.

Together, through online therapy with me, you will,

  • Recognize your triggers to stress and anxiety
  • Gain awareness of your behavioral patterns that lead to mental health struggles
  • Understand how your thoughts influence how you feel
  • Process unresolved trauma and loss
  • Learn coping strategies to manage your mood
  • Practice healthy communication skills
  • Develop a plan and goals for your future
  • Take practical steps toward the life you desire

I find fulfillment in helping guide you through positive changes to find hope

Through compassionate-based care, I will provide you with an open, non-judgemental space to be yourself. I can naturally accept you where you are in your current life circumstances. 

People who know me often say that I am a good listener. I can sit with them during their worst times without trying to “fix” anything. After processing and sitting with the worst; I will guide you through the sometimes challenging waters to move forward to the next space in your life.

There is not a one-size fits all approach to therapy. Instead, I utilize principles from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), strengths-based therapy, and solutions-focused therapy to create a unique treatment plan for your individualized needs.

As your therapist, I embrace the following philosophies:

  • I believe that there is no shame in asking for help
  • I believe that change is possible when you allow yourself the space to do the work
  • I believe that therapy should address the person as a whole – mind, body, and spirit
  • I believe that sometimes small steps in the right direction end up being the most significant steps in the end
  • I believe that even if we feel like we’ve lost hope, it’s possible to show up, commit to ourselves, and do what it takes to start feeling better
