Welcome Andrew! Andrew Luceno is joining us part time to provide his expertise in assessment services. He is registered clinical and school psychologist specializing in psycho-educational assessments, psychological assessments, and cognitive behavioural therapy services. He draws from 15 years of experience working internationally as a school counsellor and special educator to support children, families, and educators through evidence-based practices. His experiences as a classroom teacher, special educator, university admissions counsellor, and social-emotional counsellor span the globe from Toronto, Calgary, Istanbul, Amsterdam, and Hong Kong, where he held a split role as Counsellor and Learning Strategist.

Andrew has a passion for social justice, and has dedicated his research efforts to examining how educators facilitate safe and inclusive school environments for gender and sexually-diverse youth. Andrew has worked with individuals (and their families) of all ages, and will focus on applying cognitive-behavioural techniques while building supportive and collaborative relationships with his clients.

At Brighter Psychology, one of the trauma treatments we offer is Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), a form of therapy that works directly to reprogram the way distressing memories and images are stored in the brain so they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions. Your therapist will gain an understanding of your history and what brought you to therapy. From there, you will work together to identify your goals and the steps to take to achieve them. ✨

ART is a treatment that is proven effective in treating PTSD, Depression, Anxiety and Grief to name a few!

💬Quote by Maya Angelou

The world we live in is becoming more connected every day, and sharing the unique perspectives of different cultures and points of view can lead to amazing things. 💙 It is important to teach our kids and people of all ages that diversity is what will help make this world a better place.

There is nothing like some fresh air to soothe your mind. ☀️

One of our favourite things to do when we are feeling the stress, is taking a break and going for a walk. Even a 10 minute venture outdoors can increase your mental alertness, energy and bring up your mood. It can also help reduce stress and anxiety that may have built up over the day.

What is your favourite way to relax? ✨

It can be hard to say no, but setting healthy boundaries is essential to creating strong, valuable relationships. 🧡

Boundaries are about knowing how to take care of yourself. When you set and maintain healthy boundaries, you protect yourself from the feelings of resentment, disappointment and anger that may build up when others don't respect your limits.

Here are some respectful ways to let someone know where your boundaries are. ✨
