Welcome to Choose Well Being!


Hello!  My name is Zach Lucas, a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Oregon.

I also serve as a dual credit high school Psychology teacher in the Portland area.


The holistic health and healing approach grows through the life-integration of mind, emotions, body, spirit, and social connection.  We can think of holistic health like colors.  As we focus on growing a healthier blue and yellow, the "whole" result will be a healthier green.  Author Greg Anderson echoes this reality well, "  Wellness is the compete integration of body, mind, and spirit. The realization that everything we do, think, feel, and believe has an effect on our state of well-being."
