About

Now offering video and phone therapy from the safety and comfort of your own home. I firmly believe that we all have the ability to create meaningful, happy lives for ourselves, even in the face of adversity. The quality of our experiences is determined by the meaning we give to them. Our time together will be aimed at fostering insights into your inner world - your beliefs, emotions, thoughts, and impulses - to help you redefine your outlook and create the life you want. This is sometimes hard work, and I have seen people make incredible changes. You can too!
In our sessions together we will focus on self exploration, and developing skills that will help you better understand and manage your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, motivations, and values. I also help families of those who struggle with addictions to cope, help them maintain boundaries, and help them speak to their loved ones about entering treatment.
Through the use of evidence based treatments I help my clients regain a sense of power and control over their lives. I have experience in helping with depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, subtance use, insomnia, tobacco cessation, pain management, and other general behavioral challenges. I have experience with Veterans, first responders, and medical pros.

Christopher Akins's Groups

Anger Management Group

Are you having trouble managing your anger? Everybody gets mad, but some people have a really hard time getting over their anger. Out-of-control anger can have serious consequences, including lost relationships, damaged property, or even legal problems. This group will use research-based cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness practices to assist people in understanding and regaining control over their anger. The group will run weekly for 8 sessions. Cost is $40 per session (total $320, payable prior to the start of 1st session). Please contact Dr. Akins at chris@chrisakins.com for additional information and group dates.
