The entire app experience has been designed by and for tweens and teens to put explorers in the driver’s seat of their own self care journey. Explorers can select personal missions, complete daily self-care plans, and track progress every step of the way.

Lucero is designed to increase emotional regulation skills, self-awareness, confidence, and mindfulness. Our content has been reviewed and approved by trauma-informed therapists from Ensemble therapy and Professional School Counselors (Including Austin ISD School Counselor of the Year) who understand the unique developmental needs of children and guided Lucero’s use of evidenced-based concepts inspired by:

  • Solution-focused Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy 
  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and
  • Trust Based Relational Intervention

Together we’ve made hard topics and complex methodologies fun, engaging, and bite-sized!

We are caregivers, too. You don’t need another thing on your to-do list. That’s why we have made sure the app engagement is built to seamlessly integrate into the daily reality of family-life. Engage with your youth in meaningful ways in a few minutes or seconds a day. A little can go a long way!
