Lucas Morgan, Ph.D.

I focus on working with older adults because they are an often invisible group, who face a number of unique challenges and often suffer in silence. I help clients dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, chronic illness, major transitions, losses of many kinds (e.g., people, abilities, imagined futures), caregiving, memory concerns, and much more, in adjusting to what can't be fixed, and focusing on living fully in the midst of life's challenges. I help people develop more effective strategies and skills for living meaningful lives while facing reality head-on. Acceptance and change are both critical parts of our human path.

I had the privilege of mentoring under Dr. Lizabeth Roemer at UMass Boston for my doctorate in psychology and came home to complete my internship and a post-doctoral fellowship with I Ola Lāhui Behavioral Health Services. I integrate evidence-based cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and values-based practices in my work with clients.

I feel lucky to be able to be back home in Hawai'i to support our communities by providing evidence-based psychotherapy. I am honored to have been let into the lives and struggles of people in my work. Being human is not easy! Seeking help is not about being "crazy," it's taking a critical step towards living life fully.
