Solutions for Change

At Lucas Counseling Group, we offer a safe non-judgmental environment that is predicated on empathy, acceptance, and growth. 

We use a holistic approach that integrates both traditional and non-traditional treatments. A holistic approach improves overall well-being; not just physical symptoms. When we treat our bodies as a whole, we are able to see more complete progress.

Much of your success will be determined by the work you do between sessions. Developing healthy mental habits is the same process as developing any other habit or skill. The more you practice, the quicker and more sustainable your success will be.

We will customize a strategy that fits YOUR needs and goals. We utilize a variety of approaches and tools that complement each other.

Our team is skilled, passionate, motivated, non-judgmental, encouraging, and accepting.  Witnessing your success is what keeps us passionate and enables us to deliver the highest-quality mental health services.

Our Administrative Process

We choose to be proactive before your first appointment so that you can have peace of mind knowing what your cost will be; which all but eliminates the possibility of surprises from your insurance company.

We will take care of verifying your insurance coverage and benefits well before your first appointment in addition to walking you through the intake process and answering any questions you may have.

If you become a client, you will be given access to our user-friendly client portal where you can access, complete, and click-to-sign intake assessments, and consent forms. No downloading or printing forms are necessary.  Your client portal also includes secure messaging with your counselor, scheduling, and access to billing statements, invoices, and other tools. 

We do everything we can to help you focus on what is most important: YOU.

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 more
