"Relationships can be hard. You can love someone and still have destructive patterns of communication. I want to help each person learn new and better ways to communicate. Sometimes, we just need to be heard by someone. I want to hear from each client by listening deeply to what they are saying. I have worked with many couples and individuals over the years to build stronger relationships and happier lives."

"I work with adult men and adult women on any sort of issue they bring to therapy, and about one third of my caseload at any given time is couples. I have come to see that my role is to help people look at things differently. We can focus on changing behaviors, thoughts, or feelings, but those changes tend to last only a few weeks. If we focus on a shift in perspective then once that shift is achieved, everything else – feelings, thoughts, behaviors - falls into place."

"You want to feel more calm. You don't want life to feel like a fight. You have wanted to talk to someone about this without worrying about being judged. You are wondering how to approach the next season of life. You often feel nervous, shut down, guilty, regretful, trapped, irritated, uncertain, anxious. You are isolating yourself more or are short fused with people you care for. You find yourself trying to escape by having a drink, shopping, or engaging in relationships with others that are different than who you really are. You find these things slowing you down or holding you back. You don't have to suffer in silence. "

"Chris works from the understanding that connecting with one’s self and others is a pathway toward finding meaning and fulfillment. This pathway of connecting can become blocked by old emotional wounds or current relationship struggles. The partnership formed in the therapy relationship becomes the platform where healing broken connections may occur. This approach can help bring about lasting change by getting at the ‘root’ of the problem, and bring relief from symptoms. Central to Chris’ approach is a concern for the role that faith and belief play in the life of his patients. "
