Fausta Luchini, M.A., WPCC, is a holistic life coach, a catalyst, and a visionary. She loves to coach people who are ready to build a life that lets them shine. She has been described as a wise elder, bringing the insight and wisdom gathered from a lifetime of working with people to her role of coach.
A native of Kentucky, Fausta earned a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology in 1993 and spent over 20 years as a therapist. Fifteen years in Community Mental Health, both in urban and rural settings, gave her a wide range of experience with diverse cultures. Offering individual and group therapy to adults, many of whom were survivors of childhood trauma, she learned ways to help her clients work through the lingering impact of that trauma on their lives – and they helped form her understanding of the pathways to healing. She continues to be grateful for those experiences and awed at the strength and resilience of her clients.
This rich experience – from Community Mental Health to private practice to Training Coordinator - has led her work to this space. As a life coach, she is committed to working with the helpers - the social workers, advocates, attorneys, first responders, teachers and parents who engage directly with survivors of trauma. If you wake up at 2 a.m. worrying about your clients, think about your students over the weekend, if you feel like you're losing yourself in their suffering, Fausta helps you reconnect with yourself and find the tools you need to sustain that connection. She creates a space for you to explore how to develop a life that supports the work you do, how to build a life that lets you shine.
Fausta lives in Savannah, Ga, in a multi-generational household, where she enjoys the warm weather and being close to the ocean. When she’s not coaching, or blogging about it, Fausta enjoys playing with her grandchildren, exploring new restaurants with her daughter, traveling with her life partner, Dennis, and walking on the beach by herself.
