Hello! I bring 16 years of mental health experience along for your sessions. I consider myself a generalist and I'm happy to help you with any need or concern that you might have. Some of the areas where I have the most experience are depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and grief and loss. I work with almost all age groups however, I typically do not work with persons under the age of 18. If you are a minor, please consult with me before scheduling an intake and I will consider your need and my areas of expertise and help you determine our next steps. I am also no longer able to accommodate couples therapy. If you are seeking a couples therapy session I will be happy to assist you with a referral. I have spent the majority of my career working in a University setting and have helped many college-age adults make meaningful changes. I have also worked in behavioral health clinics and have experience working with clients that have been legally referred to therapy. If you would like to make an appointment and cannot find a time that works for you, please feel free to call me at my office (please leave a voicemail if I'm unavailable) or send me an e-mail and I'll see if I can move some things around to accommodate your need. 806-701-2601 or chris@beginningchange.com

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

I want to spend time helping you to feel heard and understood. We will spend some time getting to know each other and I will help you to establish a focus, long-term goals, and short-term goals that will help you to accomplish the changes that you would like to make.

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

My biggest strength when working with a client is being able to meet the client where they are at and help the client to get to where they are going. In therapy we will establish a focus along with short term goals. I like to treat the treatment plan as a fluid document that you and I can work on together. My number one goal above all else is to give the client a safe space where they feel heard.

Motivational Interviewing

I have had advanced training from Dr.s William Miller and Theresa Moyers and I continue my education in this approach annually. I typically utilize this approach in conjunction with CBT, ACT, Mindfulness strategies, and sometimes, REBT.
