Charlie Lucas is the first counselor I've gone to (and I've gone to several) who actual "gets me". He's real and honest... and actually listens. At every appointment, we talk about solutions!! He uses alot of humor, which is so refreshing. We also go on walks nearly every appointment, because he believes in using exercise to improve your overall well being. He gives me hope that I'm going to be the person I want to become. And, I'm getting there. Yay!read more

My experience with Charlie Lucas has been at minimum Exceptional. I trust him completely and now have friends going to... him since they have seen how much he has helped me. Charlie has changed my life in so many ways. Everyday is unbelievably better. I came to Charlie at a time when I felt at a loss and defeated in several aspects of my life. I was in crisis mode everyday. I was totally stressed, highly anxious and basically a mess. Although my family and friends are very supportive, no one had dealt with the issues I desperately needed help with and I was out of ideas to even start to deal with life. Charlie listened intently to my situation and concerns. He then jumped all in, with excitement, to guide me, teach me and walk me through each and every issue. He has taught me so much and I find myself thinking “ Wow, I did that!” I’m happy again, I’m proud again and I live again. I always feel like I am talking to a friend and I see him smile when I tell him about my new accomplishments. He genuinely cares about each person. On 2 occasions I have called him for help with a particular scenario between appointments and he was right there for me with the help I needed. Sometimes we go for walk for my session and he will FaceTime a session if needed. He is the best all around therapist I have been to and I will continue with Charlie from here on out.read more
