Education/Certification:

Ms Lukic received her undergraduate degree from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida and her graduate degree from Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia. Her certifications include: Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Substance Abuse Treatment Practitioner (LSATP) in Virginia; Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), Certified Addictions Professional (CAP) and Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) in Florida; as well as National Certified Counselor (NCC) and National Counseling Certification Board (NBCC).

Philosophy:

Ms Lukic: "I firmly believe Life is a spiritual journey and our Higher Power brings others into our lives for us to learn something from them and for them to learn something from us. If there is even one sentence that I say to someone in treatment that changes their life in a positive way (for an hour, a day, a week or a month etc.)...then everything I have attained and experienced has been worth it."
