My degree is in Art Therapy, but I have experience in many modalities of talk therapy, and prefer a Person Centered or Humanistic approach, and use other techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have experience in providing therapy for the substance abuse and co-occurring disorders population. I have years of experience with children, teens, and adults. I have done couples counseling and worked with an array of issues including depression, anxiety, personal development and more.
My style is a warm and compassionate approach, and I use active listening when interacting with clients. People at the hospitals, residential centers, and clinics I have worked at have described my personality and demeanor has having a calming effect on others.
I am here to provide safe and supportive therapy for you and believe everyone has the ability to make positive changes from within.
As a Native American I have insight into Native American issues and culture as well.
- Stress, Anxiety
I also have experience in Family, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related, Eating, Sleeping, Parenting, Anger, Self esteem, Career, Bipolar

An excellent listener. He offered suggestions to handle emotions but guided me to the answers as opposed to giving them to me. He was attentive without being over bearing and checked in if I had been quiet for a few days.
I have only been working with Lucas for a few weeks, but already I am feeling more in control of my depression and anxiety than I have in years. My sleeping pattern has improved and I just feel I finally have the upper hand against my mental health problems.
I would highly recommend Lucas. I have gone through many therapist and never felt I could fully trust them. Lucas has my trust and I feel confident that with his help I can get through my demons.
Lucas is a fantastic counsellor. He checks up on me regularly and always knows the right questions to ask and the right things to say. Thanks Lucas. :)
Lucas was attentive and a good listener.
Thank you for being here, I actually joined BetterHelp because I think I have a kind of lack of confidence and self esteem that prevents me from being successful in my social and professional life.thank you
