Intern Staff

Luke Durain, MA


I seek to empower individuals, couples, and families of all ages as they seek growth and healing. I believe that every person’s unique story deserves compassion and is worth understanding. I take a collaborative and relational approach to therapy as we explore patterns, identify achievable goals, and develop effective interpersonal or coping skills. I am committed to creating a therapy space that feels open and safe. For those who wish, I have extensive training in the integration of one’s faith or cultural experience into therapy.

As a therapist, I draw from Acceptance Commitment Therapy as well as other therapeutic methods. I have a heart for helping people with a variety of concerns such as depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, trauma, ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. My experience includes working with people from diverse communities such as providing therapy at an African American church and a community clinic in Los Angeles, and, serving as a youth pastor at a Korean American church.

I received both a master’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary, where I am currently a candidate for a PhD in clinical psychology.  I am honored to work under the supervision of Dr. Nancy Cochran.

I find that beginning therapy can be an intimidating process, especially for those who are seeking therapy for the first time. My goal is to meet clients where they are emotionally.  I seek to provide a welcoming, accepting space that allows each person to feel comfortable while we build a therapeutic alliance. I invite clients to explore their inner self in order to gain insight into their current situation, as a path towards healing.

I approached therapy from a person-centered approach to help facilitate personal growth and development.  I believe that mindfulness can be a powerful tool as well, to help decrease anxious thoughts and live life in the present moment. I am open to working with people in all seasons of life.

I am excited to join the Center as a therapy extern for the 2019-2020 training year and to work under the supervision of Dr. Patricia Francis, OP.
