Neurodiveristy, Trauma-informed care, Digital Addiction

We specialize in Neurodiversity. Trauma-informed care, and Digital addiction. While Autism, ADHD, and other mental health challenges cause pain, there is much to be learned and even celebrated when they are understood and treated properly. Trauma is at the root of many mental health challenges. Yet there is a silver lining on the other side of trauma. Digital addiction is a troubling drug of choice for our current age. Lives change when addiction is treated.

Life Changing

“We talk about our life before Silicon Valley Therapy vs. after SVT.  I certainly did NOT think we would be here.  Thank you SVT!”


“Since my partner and I have known each other (about 20 years) I think we’ve never communicated like we did last session.  I believe in synchronicity and people showing up in life at the right time.  Meeting Dr. Lucking has been a moment of synchronicity for us.”

Innovative Tools

“I’m so thrilled that Neurofeedback is helping my child and social activities are improving.  After our last session my partner confessed why he runs away when times get difficult.  When he explained this I realized this was the first time I’ve ever heard so much honesty.  The in-session work we do with SVT combined with the support and resources provided outside of session makes all the difference – thank you SVT for helping our family!”

Healthy Safe Happy
