Hi! My name is Joseph G. Lukas-Drouillard Hogan, LCSW (Joe Hogan) and I am a Client Centered and Mind/Body/Spirit therapist who has been helping people for over 17 years. I am currently licensed in New Mexico and Ohio. I grew up outside Toledo, Ohio, and have Midwestern values, a loving heart, a kind disposition, and a good sense of humor!
A 1990 graduate of the University of Toledo with a BA in Psychology, I started my journey as a career counselor. I went from there to working as a inpatient psychiatric social worker. In 2002, I received an MSW from Eastern Michigan University. I also obtained an MBA in 2007, and a non-academic PhD(Hon.) in Metaphysical Religious Counseling in 2000.
I have worked in a lot of settings. I have also worked as a drug and alcohol counselor. I have had a private practice for many years working with seniors. I have worked with musicians on Music Row in Nashville. I have worked in rural areas of northern NM and OH. I have even worked on a Native American reservation (Kewa).
I am open to also work with those currently being treated with Medical Cannabis.
I am also a Veteran. I served in the Ohio Army National Guard. I have worked as a civilian LCSW (social worker) at Fort Campbell, KY, Kirtland AFB in NM, and the VA in Taos, NM. In my free time as well, I have served as an adult officer in the Navy Sea Cadets, and currently serve in the Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Air Force CAP program.
Right now I live in Albuquerque, NM where I also enjoy flea markets, driving in the mountains, listening to classic rock, getting to the beach if I can, and watching college and pro football!
Learning and practicing self love and self care, and showing love and understanding to other bring happiness to life. That does not mean that difficult people don’t exist in this world. We are all spirits in human form just trying to find happiness! We can rise above the negativity! Let’s take this journey together through this mystery we call life and find the special one which is you!

Dr. Hogan has been a gentle and steady sounding board for me and has been there to help me gain more confidence in myself. Also to ask questions and let me vent in a safe space. I am grateful for having someone like him.

He is an awesome therapist and makes BetterHelp a wonderful platform. I would recommend him to anyone who is hesitant about trying therapy virtually. Very easy to get along with and truly listens to you.

Joe is a great listener and a genuine friend. I feel very comfortable discussing complex issues with him and always leave our sessions feeling relieved. Joe has helped me overcome difficult things and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for help during a difficult time.

I only saw Joseph for a month or so I enjoyed his insight. My schedule changed and I realized I need to prioritize therapy and I didn’t want to have to rush or not be fully available to talk each week due to new hours so I made the choice to find a new therapist that would be easier to fit around my schedule.
I truly am thankful for Joseph and highly recommend him especially for those who are new to therapy.
