Luci Dumas Espinoza, Ph.D

Have you been told by others that you should see a therapist, but you’re not sure why? Have you had thoughts such as, “What is wrong with me?” or “Why am I different from others?” or “Why is life so hard for me?” Do you feel you are being held back from your full potential, but unsure as to how to move forward?

It is not uncommon for people to have these thoughts or experiences when they are struggling with a mental health issue, which could include dealing with past trauma, substance abuse, ADHD, personality disorders, depression, or anxiety, to name a few.

I earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Wyoming and am licensed as a psychologist in the State of Ohio (license #: P.08209). My breadth of experience comes from working in a variety of different settings including inpatient psychiatric care, inpatient drug treatment, outpatient community-based settings, correctional settings, and private practice. Additionally, I have worked with clients ranging in age from children to older adults.

As a contract worker with Monarch Counseling, I offer psychological evaluations for individuals 13 years and older via telehealth to help determine possible psychological conditions that may be impeding your productivity and quality of life. I offer specific evaluations for ADHD, as well as evaluations to determine the presence of underlying psychological concerns for individuals with substance abuse (e.g., “dual diagnosis”). At the conclusion of the evaluation, I will provide you with recommendations and referrals for treatment to begin addressing the areas in need of change that we uncovered during the evaluation.At this time, I am accepting self-pay clients and those with the following insurance coverage:

  • Aetna
  • United Healthcare/UMR
  • ChoiceCare
  • Cigna
  • First Health
  • HealthReach Preferred
  • Healthsmart
  • Humana Commercial
  • Medical Mutual
  • Ohio Health Choice
  • Stratose


Evaluations typically take 1 to 2 sessions to collect necessary information, and one session for feedback at the conclusion of the evaluation. You are expected to complete necessary paperwork and questionnaires outside of session to streamline the process. A report will be provided to you at the conclusion of the evaluation that can be shared with treating providers, prescribing physicians, or whoever else you choose that would be helpful in your treatment. Cost of evaluations is determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the number of hours. The rate is $175 per hour for self-pay clients.
