We know well the challenges of being on the Autism spectrum. We also know the amazing strengths and gifts that ASD can bring.

Positive Parenting
with a Plan
Succeed in the two major tasks of parenting

Stable loving families raise kind, caring, and responsible children. These families don't happen without effort. We can help accelerate your path towards healing, hope, and forward motion for your family.

Addiction
Digital & Sex Addiction
Coping strategies that don't end well

Addiction is a pleasure seeking strategy to deal with pain. Yet addiction ends up causing more pain than the pain that it tries to run from. An integrative approach to addiction is essential. Addiction is hard to beat once the brain is wired to seek it out when life gets hard. We use a multimodal integrative approach that addresses the individual and the social context in which the individual lives. We promote connection to heal addiction.

We Treat Addiction

Do you play video games, surf the web, or use social media for more than 2 hours per day? Are you ashamed of your porn use but can't stop? Are you isolating, losing sleep, or less effective at life tasks? Have people told you that you may have a problem? Do you find yourself lying despite knowing that it is wrong?

Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback goes beyond talk therapy
Train your brain to be your optimal self

Neurofeedback compliments talk therapy. It trains your brain to resolve your mental health issues faster than with talk therapy alone. There are no side effects and no reason not to try Neurofeedback. It's like going to the gym for your brain and walking away feeling great.

Neurofeedback Helps

ADHD, Addiction, Anxiety, ASD, Emotional overwhelm due to unregulated sensory processing, Headaches, Migraines, Mood disorders, Trauma

RELATIONSHIPS THAT THRIVE

We have decades of experience working with Neurodiverse relationships, couples, parents, and families. This experience has taught us that words can be the biggest problem with communication. Our Island of Shared Meaning (ISM) communication model and mobile app adds a whole new dimension to communication. Guided by our certified ISM providers your relationship foundation will change for the better. You will experience measurable change rapidly with our social experiments. This is couples, families, parenting therapy and coaching like you’ve never experienced.

our approach

Our treatment approach is supported by team members who are academics, researchers, authors, and innovators. We write books, train other therapists, and create innovative mental health tools (I.e. our new ISM Communications mobile app). We begin with a holistic intake that enables your provider to gain a deep understanding of your story and challenges. From there your provider can draw on a vast array of modalities and additional diagnostics assessments whose efficacy is validated by peer-reviewed social science evidence.

Your one wild and precious life

Our mission at Therapy InMotion is to help you answer Mary Oliver’s timeless question: “Tell me what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life.” Life is hard but it's harder if we live without intention, mindfulness, and emotional maturity. Trauma, addiction, and attachment disorders derail life and relationships. Our therapeutic approaches accelerate and optimize your journey towards a well-lived, wild, and precious life.

Testimonials

We are Building Lives that Flourish and Relationships that Thrive

Asperger's Experts

“We struggled for years with therapists that didn’t understand Asperger’s…it is only now that we are getting traction and rebuilding our relationship – thank you Dr. Lucking!”
– Neurodiverse clients

Cassie is a Joy to Work With

“I was referred to Cassie Roving for help with family issues. Cassie is wonderful and it’s a joy working with her. She is bright, knowledgeable, kind and clearly understands my situation/issue. Her advice and guidance are excellent and have been very helpful in not only working through this issue but others we’ve discussed as well. I look forward to working with Cassie as part of my support system currently and for future needs that may arise for me.”
– Patty, individual client

Life Changing

“We talk about our life before Dr. Lucking vs. after Dr. Lucking. I certainly did NOT think we would be here. Thank you Dr. Lucking!”
– Couples client

Christine Gets Me

“I am really grateful to have crossed paths with Christine because I have been searching for a therapist that just gets it. I have had a couple of experiences with therapists and Christine truly stood out. She has a comforting nature that helps me open up about my feelings and thoughts. We have been meeting weekly for over a year now. She made me feel comfortable sharing my thoughts and feelings only after a short period of time. I have been through some tough patches of my life during my time in therapy and it makes it’s a bit easier when your therapist feels like your friend. Christine is almost like a sister to me, I feel comfortable sharing anything without feeling judged.”
– Teen client

Innovative Tools

“I’m so thrilled that Neurofeedback is helping my child and social activities are improving. After our last session my partner confessed why he runs away when times get difficult. When he explained this I realized this was the first time I’ve ever heard so much honesty. The in-session work we do with Dr. Lucking combined with the support and resources provided outside of session makes all the difference – thank you Dr. Lucking for helping our family!”
– Family therapy clients

Amazing Neurofeedback

“Your last session was amazing. Wow. I was so happy afterwards.”
– Mike, Neurofeedback client

Now my Daughter Wants to go to Therapy!

“Christine, this if the FIRST time my daughter is looking forward to talking to a professional!”
– Parent client

I Trust Christine

“Christine has been an essential part of my personal development, guided me through the most difficult times of my life, and there is no one I trust more to discuss my fears, hopes, traumas, and feelings with.”
– Teen client

ADHD Diagnosed & Treated

“Therapy was something that I was always afraid to do, It got to the point where my depression and anxiety started to take over my life. School seemed to be out of reach since I was always having a hard time in class.

With the help of Katie, we came to the conclusion that I was suffering from ADHD. Once we got the diagnosis of ADHD, she started teaching me how to cope with it and use it to my advantage. Now I’m working on getting my masters degree in computer science and astronomy.

Thanks to Katie I went from hating life to looking forward to the next chapter in my life.”

Communication Breakthrough

“Since my partner and I have known each other (about 20 years) I think we’ve never communicated like we did last session. I believe in synchronicity and people showing up in life at the right time. Meeting Dr. Lucking has been a moment of synchronicity for us.”
– Couples client

Relationship Renewal

“Dr Lucking, you played a big part in our life for which we are forever grateful. We are doing worlds better than before seeing you. Mutual respect and good listening are making all the difference.”
– Craig, couples client

Nothing Worked until I met Christine

“Christine is one of the most caring and down to earth therapist. I’ve had therapy for a long time now, but nothing seemed to work until I met Christine. She listened to me and made me feel understood and cared for. She is easy to talk to and very patient if you are not fully ready to talk about certain topics. I am glad that I got the opportunity to have her as my therapist!”
– Teen client

Truly Blessed

“I have nothing but great things to say about my experiences with my therapist and coach. I highly recommend them. I am truly blessed to have found them, and they won’t give up on you! Please don’t give up before reaching out to them!”
– Bridget, Couple client

Katie Cares

“Katie is a great listener! She provides her thoughts at appropriate times and they’re not just placating but her truthful opinions. She comes across as caring, thoughtful, and engaged.”
– David P.
