Therapist Marcus Lusk Photo

About Me

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!

I've been talking with Marcus for almost 3 weeks now. He is a genuine person and seems to really take in what your saying while giving straight forward answers in return. I look forward to our sessions and worksheets he provides. I'm not fixed at but I'm definitely feeling alittle better now that i can talk to someone that seems to understand.

Marcus is a great listener and counselor. His non-judgemental, laid back demeanor was appreciated and made for easy conversation, while still challenging me. He helped me through some life changes.

Marcus has quickly become an invaluable asset in helping me manage my currently very turbulent life. He is very empathetic but also very direct, which is to me one of the most important qualities a therapist should have. In a short amount of time I've learned some incredible coping mechanisms & tools that are having extremely positive effects on my life. Really great. I feel very lucky to have him in my corner.

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.

Written by R.E. on Aug 18, 2020 after therapy with Marcus for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

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.
