Beacon Transitions and LifeTutors are excited to announce the addition of Greta Lutman LCMHC, LCAS, LPC to their team as a Transitional Family Therapist.
After eight years of serving young adult men with learning disabilities, Beacon Transitions has expanded their offerings to include comprehensive support for clients emerging from the therapeutic milieu and re-integrating into society. Honoring its mission of providing individualized services to residents and families, Beacon has refined the transition process to create lasting outcomes.
Greta will assist the families of clients as they move through the residential setting, and into supported apartment living, providing tailored support to parents as their young adult celebrates incremental milestones of achievement.
On joining the team, Greta had this to say “I am thrilled to be joining the Transitions team in their collaborative effort to provide services to parents of young adults in the final phase of the program. With twenty-nine years of practice as a Licensed Counselor and twenty-one years as a therapist in the wilderness and residential programs throughout the Southeast, one of my passions is counseling parents while their adolescent and young adult loved ones are working through their issues. Parents need support during this process as well, so they can focus on their own growth and development. as Dr. Dan Siegel says, the most helpful thing we can do to support our kids' growth and development is to "make sense of our own lives." That means understanding our stories and relationship patterns and strategizing ways of staying connected to ourselves and our family members while allowing for appropriately increasing independence for our loved ones. I'm grateful for the opportunity to support families in this way.”
