Dr. Lana Holmes, LCP

To me, therapy is an art, a science, and a healing practice. Fundamentally, it is a collaborative process to identify and work through the problems that interrupt you from living life to your fullest. Still, it can feel hard to discover therapeutic spaces where you'll find grace, compassion, and acceptance.

 

Doing therapy along the margins is my passion and professional mission.

My dedication to diversity, inclusivity and cultural competence is more than a professional aspiration, it is personal to me. Specifically, I was born in Germany and come from an Air Force family, which exposed me to people from various cultures around the world. This experience engendered a sense that the differences within humanity are what help us to thrive and progress as a whole. Furthermore, from an early age, I was aware that I was Black, bisexual, and female. Therefore, I understand what it is like to be subjected to bigotry (as a member of several marginalized and oppressed groups) but to also not let that diminish my pride in who I am or where I come from.
 
In our therapeutic work, we'll use evidence-based tools like dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and trauma- informed techniques, alongside humor, nerdy references, and musical metaphors. I am inherently attracted to subcultures attached to literary (i.e., the Beat Generation) and musical (i.e., punk rock) movements that were predicated on personal and collective freedom, self-expression, authenticity, breaking conventions and exploring new
possibilities (within art, relationships, and life), so that will likely show up in our work together. I look forward to engaging with you in therapy that celebrates you as a whole person.
