Ivah Lumalang, RCC

Ivah specializes in working with children and families. However, she is also passionate about working with adolescents, young adults, and individual adults who are navigating through issues related to childhood traumas, familial expectations / intergenerational trauma, cultural and life transitions, self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, loneliness, grief, relationships, eating disorders, and setting healthy boundaries.

Ivah’s professional philosophy is rooted in the belief that each individual possesses inherent strengths, the capacity for positive change, and the ability to thrive and grow. She wants to hear your story and help rewrite negative thoughts, emotions, and habits into powerful catalysts for personal transformation. It is her desire to empower you to unlock your full potential and embrace your authenticity through honest exploration, collaborative dialogue, and evidence-based practices. Ivah looks forward to embarking on this transformative journey with you—celebrating every victory, big or small, along the way, and illuminating paths toward growth, self-discovery, and healing.

Outside of the office, Ivah loves to travel, play sports, and spend quality time with her loved ones. In her free time, she enjoys baking and being creative– whether that be doing calligraphy, painting, decorating, DIY projects, or clay making/pottery. Last but definitely not least, Ivah loves exploring new restaurants with her partner because they are self-proclaimed foodies!
