Thank you to all of our listeners for helping us grow so rapidly. 

 Welcome to our latest and hottest episode of Light ‘Em Up.  

 We’ve been very fortunate to have a string of special guests that are experts in their field. 

This episode is no different. 

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and we are honored to sit down with Bilingual (Spanish/English) Psychotherapist, Luz Lopez.  

In our effort to continue to use our platform and forum to enlighten, educate and empower others on their path, we are focusing our spotlight and providing a forum to Luz and the tremendous talents that she possesses – as a means of providing hope for those who may be suffering in any way shape or form mentally – perhaps depressed, anxious or in any way in crisis and in need of understanding and care. 

Luz is a leading voice on all things focused on mental health, healing and the mind. 

She is a powerful force on LinkedIn, as well. 

Luz and I share an in-depth, strategic, transformative conversation that expounds on how she addresses and treats holistically and in-depth the entire mind, body and spirit.  

Her professional expertise has transformed countless individuals from struggling mentally and being in-crisis to regaining control and able to function effectively in their thoughts, words and deeds.  

She says that “Care starts from the beginning.”  Her impeccable skills and abilities save lives. 

As you listen you will hear evidence of how she takes complex concepts about the brain and explains them in a way that everyone can understand.  Her communications are extremely caring, soothing and sensitive to the needs of her clients and to their minds.  Knowing how to communicate with a person in crisis is essential, it can be the difference between life and death.  

She stresses that:  “Our minds are constantly working,” which is a good thing, a defensive mechanism, and that no person is “broken”.

In her professional practice Luz treats the mind in a way that brings about tremendous and impacting healing results.  “People are not choosing to feel bad,” she says.

She is a professional mental health expert who knows how to connect with the heart – so as to treat the brain.   Her work is filled with compassion, hope.  

Luz offers tremendous insight as to: 

·         How to “break the ice” and start a conversation with a family member or friend when attempting to talk with a loved one about their mental health or the behavior that they may be exhibiting. 

·         Biological factors that underlie trauma, depression and/or anxiety. 

·         How not to “re-traumatize” people who are already suffering in the healing process. 

·         The role of genetic risk factors in mental illness.

·         PTSD(s)

·         How to address the negative stigma that is too often attached to mental illness.

·         How to handle the “trust” that a person in crisis puts in another in order to talk with them and be willing to confide their feelings. 

It is a tremendous hour that flies by in no time. 

I hope you enjoy this wonderful opportunity to hear from a leading expert in a very crowded field. 

Luz helps to unscramble the noise. 

Thanks again for listening!
