L.J. Lumpkin, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist / Consultant
San Marcos CA
Central to my therapeutic philosophy is the belief in meeting clients where they are, acknowledging the uniqueness of each individual's journey. I firmly reject the notion of a one-size-fits-all approach, recognizing the diversity of experiences and backgrounds. Specializing in working with First Responders, Veterans Health workers, and former athletes grappling with past or acute trauma, I offer a safe and supportive space for healing. Constant growth is a cornerstone of my practice, and I extend this commitment to my clients. Drawing from various modalities such as exercise, yoga, meditation, nature, and ceremony, I guide individuals in cultivating a new awareness within each life lesson. This holistic approach fosters healing across the mind, body, and spirit.
With over a decade of experience in mental health, I,, bring a multicultural and integrated approach to therapy deeply rooted in mindfulness and Gestalt practices. My commitment to individualized care is reflected in my recently published book, "Climbing out of the Box: A Path of Healing from Systemic Racism," aimed at empowering the BIPOC community and clinicians to navigate the complexities of healing. As a therapist, I hold myself to the same high standards of growth that I encourage in my clients. By integrating elements like exercise, yoga, meditation, and a connection with nature into the therapeutic process, I aim to facilitate a profound healing journey. Together, let's embark on a path of self-discovery and resilience, where each client's unique narrative is honored, and healing is a collaborative and transformative experience.
