Hi, I'm Chris, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC-S) with over 20 years of experience in the mental health field helping individuals with a wide range of emotional and life issues. I use evidence-based therapeutic strategies as well as a person-centered approach to individualize your needs, abilities and means to achieve your goals. If you are A) looking for an honest ally, who can offer hope while centering on achievable goals B) In need of an empathetic ear but open to learning how to problem-solve C) wanting a better understanding of yourself, your thoughts and feelings - then we might be a good match. Wondering if telehealth is effective? You might be surprised just how so. I work with individuals who have likely been struggling for many years, sometimes have more than one identified issue and are unsure of how to change how they feel, improve their relationships or see things getting better for themselves. Typically, core issues can be identified within the first few sessions along with a plan to manage them.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

What you can expect from our sessions is, "being heard". An understanding of what is important to you and maybe a greater understanding yourself, when at a time you may be filled with uncertainties. But also, direction. It's not always enough to know why - we must sometimes make decisions to bring about lasting changes to how we feel. All the while, not losing sight of the many things which fill our lives - work, family and hopefully fun at times. Having lived, studied and worked in rural America, large cities, overseas, military, civilian, blue and white collar jobs, I find that I can relate to a wide spectrum of people.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Among my greatest strengths would be diagnostic acumen - in other words, being able to quickly and accurately gain an understanding of "what" is at hand and "why". Having spent years helping individuals struggling with a variety of crises has lent itself to this skill. But, I'd also like to say that humor is important. I like to take things into balance and not lose levity of an otherwise difficult or unpleasant situation. I'm sure there are times for us all, that humor is what helped get us through something.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

My approach is eclectic, making use of the core mechanisms of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (identifying specific thoughts & beliefs) along with Person Centered Therapy (focusing on your unique experience). Discussions are insight driven, bringing to light a path for you; in our discussions, what you will bring forward will shed light on those areas of needed focus to bring about desired change.
