Luke Morken (Intern)
Approach: I utilize using a person-centered, strength based, and holistic view of supporting people to live a life worth living. One of the core tenants of these approaches is to work towards a collaborative alliance with clients to cultivate a safe environment to work through life stressors. When a safe environment is created between therapist and client, we can work towards awareness of aspects of our life that are not serving us. I am also working towards utilizing Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and somatic (body-based) approaches to support the people I am serving. Sometimes it’s hard to put into words the trauma we have suffered, and it may be beneficial to look at what our bodies are telling us. I look forward to being a supportive guide of the individual(s) and collaborating on finding solutions that work for you. I am currently working towards receiving my graduate degree at St. Thomas University to become a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). I look forward on becoming a more culturally competent, compassionate, and supportive therapist on this journey with you.
Hobbies: Time with friends/family, reading, video games, T.V./movies/theatre, biking, working out, hiking, or anything that involves nature
