About

Hello, I'm Dr. Chris Chroniak. For 36 years I have assisted individuals struggling with depression, stress and anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, divorce, OCD, a relationship or lack of one, as well as numerous other psychological and emotional issues. I begin therapy by developing a warm and genuine relationship with my client. We then work together to explore and work through the underlying issues that block growth and cause pain or discomfort. I also teach my clients practical and effective tools that help them deal with painful and troubling thoughts and feelings, as they occur, moment by moment.
The tools I teach are grounded in mindfulness, which is a particular kind of moment-to-moment, non-judgmental awareness. Practicing mindfulness helps people cultivate the inner resources of their minds and bodies for more effective coping, a greater sense of control, and enhanced personal growth. Mindfulness, by itself, is deeply nurturing and healing.
I have found that helping my clients better understand and work through the root causes of their difficulties, combined with teaching them the practical tools they need to live more mindfully, is profoundly effective in bringing about the meaningful and lasting change they desire in their lives. Be well -- in all things, be well.
