I am a professional licensed counselor with over 5 years' experience in the state of Georgia as a mental health therapist. I have worked in many areas of mental health with individuals who experience/experienced anxiety/panic attacks, OCD, depression, trauma, physical/sexual abuse, parenting issues, relationship problems, various addictions (drugs, pornography, etc.), self-harming behaviors, suicide attempts/ideations, oppositional defiance disorder, etc.
My counseling style is compassionate, but I am direct. I take a non-judgmental stance on all issues and work with individuals to meet their goals. I am trained in DBT, CBT, and TF-CBT. I work with the individual to create a therapeutic plan that works for them as an individual.
Life is tough and it can be harder to work through issues alone. I want to be a safe place where you can share anything without judgement and grow toward the person you want to be.
I look forward to starting the journey with you!

Marcus has been a blessing to me. I joined BetterHelp with the intention of learning more about myself and 3 days before our first session I ended up going through one of the biggest changes of my life. He listens to me, and provides me with such helpful feedback. The work he does is so impactful, and I am eternally grateful for how much he challenges and inspires me.
Listens very well and responds at the appropriate times
He’s just amazing.
Marcus listens well and challenges me, and I’m grateful to have him as my counselor.
Marcus Lusk has done an amazing job of listening to my concerns and giving me great feedback and the tools I need. He has really helped me get to the heart of the underlying issues I am working to correct.
I highly recommend Marcus because he offers solid advice in a positive and productive manner. It has been such a help working through my situation to be able to have someone "be real" with me, offer ways to manage my anxiety and grief. It's like talking to a friend who listens but also makes you aware of things that you can do to improve your mental well being. Honestly, I feel since using Betterhelp and utilizing the counselor resources, has helped me get through this painful period of my life. Thank you. Recommend.
very knowledgeable courteous and professional
