Hello and Welcome! I’m Chyrissée and I am so glad you are here. I Believe...Life presents many challenges to our ability to stay balanced and centered in our day-to-day existence. During difficult times, additional support can offer the breathing room we need to help us make sense of our circumstances. The process of therapy and the journey of self-discovery in a supportive environment can help untangle confusing thoughts, feelings, and behavioral patterns that seem to be keeping you stuck. Whether you have feelings of depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, or a challenging life transition, I want to support you every step of the way. Maya Angelou once said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” During our sessions, I will meet you with compassion, kindness and make it a point to provide you with a safe place to process, ask questions and grow. I make space for each of my clients to recognize their unique individuality and aim to support and facilitate growth and resiliency. Let's get started!

As human beings we experience a seemingly infinite amount of thoughts, feelings, and experiences. And while I am an optimist at heart, I know that life can often feel lonely, unfair, and overwhelming. Trying to navigate these difficult times can be stressful and confusing. You don't have to go through it alone. I believe everyone has the right and the capability to live the kind of life they want, whatever that may look like. I view Therapy as a very human process, as well as a very sacred one. As your therapist, my goal is for our conversations to offer a sense of relief and perspective, while helping foster healthy self-exploration and personal growth. Through supportive conversations, I aim to help you gain a deeper understanding and connection to the values within yourself and the world that surrounds you. My hope is that through this process you will find a life that is authentic, and meaningful...and that you truly enjoy.

I specialize in working with teens and young adults through difficulties with daily life challenges such as interpersonal relationships, family conflicts, life transitions, intimate partner challenges, and academic and career-related stress. I use a humanistic approach to my therapeutic style to explore what works best for clients. Some of the basic orientations I utilize are Mindfulness, Person-Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Narrative Therapy techniques. The therapy journey helps individuals understand thoughts, feelings, reactions, and responses, aiding with healing and growth. This can lead to a life that feels more grounded, joyful, and meaningful. I have been working as a therapist for over 10 years. I have experience working as an intensive outpatient therapist providing individual therapy, group therapy, and case management.

If you feel distant from your usual self, or out of place in your day to day encounters, therapy with me can be a safe reintroduction to yourself. I will be an ally, a guide and sometimes a mirror. I have up close and personal experience with recovery from addiction, broken families and broken hearts. I became a therapist after many years of being a first responder. What I learned is that when people feel heard they respond because they feel safe. Being a therapist is helping with a different type of wound, but people know when some one truly cares how they are feeling. Trauma is not only physical, our emotional trauma must be processed in order for us to grow.
