Great to meet you!

My name is Dr. Rodney Luster. I have a doctorate degree in Counseling having done my internship at Johns Hopkins University. As a research scientist, author, educator and counselor, I believe in a positive approach to psychology. I use evidence-based approaches to help some of the most unique of issues. I also have my own blog with Psychology Today where I publish a host of articles to help people with their issues--https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/contributors/rodney-luster-phd

A bit about my approach to therapy

I am a “pragmatic” therapist. I see the potentials in various approaches and philosophies as they serve the prospect for addressing a client’s needs. Having taught and studied the discipline from an array of perspectives, I utilize my first few sessions to gain an understanding of the client’s personality, their issues while understanding their goals, and ultimately finding the most salient and potential evidenced-based tactical approaches for achieving results.

What you can expect from our first session

I see counseling as a hero’s journey. Our story arc in life is often met with challenges along the way, the metaphorical dragons from life take literal shape as major life issues. It is at this critical point that we decide if, and how, we confront them. Every hero needs a counselor, a mentor, that can help resource them for this internal journey. I help client's take away greater insight, resourcing and strengths when we work together on issues.
