Starting the counseling process can feel daunting, but I make it easy. I'm warm & supportive (but direct), nonjudgmental, funny, and REAL. I work hard to help you heal yourself & your relationships. If life feels overwhelming, you're struggling in relationships, or you need direction, I would love to work with you. I'll learn about you & your needs, and tailor my approach to your preferences and personality.

As a marriage and family therapist , I look at people from a systems standpoint.
I enjoy working with people in many stages of life, and working with individuals, couples, and families. Many people come to me with an idea of where they struggle but don't know where to begin a journey of healing. I love to helping people to find healing on their spiritual journeys, recognizing the joys and pains of the church and difficulties in finding spiritual fulfillment. He believes no matter where you are on your spiritual journey it can have relevance in the therapeutic process.

1) attachment strengthens while the family discover new meanings of the past.
Empowering parent's and caregiver's ability to connect with their child in a deep and meaningful way is the central focus of Spencer’s approach to overcoming challenges. This begins when parents/caregivers are able to resolve any challenges in the relationship that may be a barrier to therapy. Once this occurs, caregivers and their child can begin, in a safe and therapeutic environment, to explore the trauma, abuse, neglect, abandonment and loss which are the emotional source to behavioral struggles.

No client is the same, and I believe that by working together, we can initiate change for each individual or family that comes to counseling.
Welcome! I am a LPCC that specializes in work with children, adolescents and adults who are experiencing a wide array of concerns related to relationships, emotional regulation or life transitions. For many, seeking out counseling can be a scary and intimidating first step towards change. As a counselor, my first goal is to create a trusting, therapeutic relationship in the counseling room, and to use this relationship as an agent for change. In session, I'll help uncover patterns in your life that no longer serve you and help you find new ways of being in the world.

Feeling stuck? I've helped couples find progress on many issues - communication, affairs, sex/intimacy, feeling disconnected, difficult family members, life transitions, considering divorce, pre-marital, and more.
Couples often find themselves stuck in old patterns that leave them feeling disconnected and wondering, "How did we get here?" We are each made up of stories/experiences across our lives; I help you and your loved one weave your stories together to find more joy, love, and care from one another. In therapy, you will rebuild your connection by learning how to communicate honestly and effectively, resolve your old problems once and for all, and connect through meaningful moments of mutual understanding. I'll help you find your way back to one another.

I have experience in working with individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, self-harm, have self-esteem and peer concerns, may be navigating through peer conflict and bullying, struggle with family relationships, and are experiencing transitions and changes to their various identities.
Hello! My name is Chris, and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate. I work primarily with teens up to emerging adults. I am a person-centered therapist. I believe in the power of warmth, authenticity, and an understanding that the most helpful spaces are the ones that you can show up in knowing that your identities will be welcomed, and your unique insights valued. I bring a background in school counseling, which I believe gives me unique insight into the challenges adolescents face. I focus on creating a warm and open environment through respect for your dignity and belief in your unique strengths and talents.

I practice Internal Family Systems therapy integrated with EMDR to heal anxiety, depression and trauma and to integrate internal strengths.
Life is filled with opportunity for growth. Psychotherapy is a powerful way to grow your capacity to enjoy life and outgrow parts of yourself that may have protected you once but are no longer helpful. Are there parts of yourself you would like to change or heal? Parts caused by trauma, childhood events, life stressors or relationships? Are you an adult child of emotionally immature parents - with unmet needs you want to explore and learn to meet? I teach skills to help you feel better quickly, and I also help you heal longer term patterns. We can clear painful memories from body, mind & spirit to create a healthy sense of self.

I work with individuals and couples to understand themselves better and to develop tools and insight that can be applied during everyday life. Through this work, I can help you to experience greater healing and compassion and to build more meaningful connections.

Are you trapped in a complex family and/or work situation? If both, there may be a similar pattern of causes even in dissimilar situations. Understanding complexity can identify basic hidden patterns. Some clients experience chronic or acute physical illnesses: these are clues to unraveling the complexities. Emotional and physical problems may be a surface expression of buried family or personal trauma. For my clients, discovering patterns embedded in family behaviors can help them manage their current problematic situations. Psychotherapy can help clients move forward in systems that seem beyond their control.

I completed a dual-degree Master's program from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in Marriage & Family Services (MS) and Social Work (MSW).
Reaching out and allowing somebody to help you sort through pain can be an intimidating process. I understand the courage it takes and because of this I believe in building a strong relationship based on trust. Not every therapist is a good match and I want to respect your time and finances. I offer a free 30-minute consultation to see what it would be like to work together. My goal is to provide a safe space for your story and to help you achieve healthy relationships and self-worth. I would be honored to be part of your healing process.

“Love is at the root of everything; all learning, all relationships. Love or the lack of it.” -Mr. Rogers. Who we are and how we function in the relationships we form so often depends on our basic need in feeling safe and secure. So much of our existence has thrived because of the nurturance, love, and connection with others. When a safe and supportive connection is created, you are stronger as a person and family member. In my work with children, teens, and families, I seek to understand not only the sources of struggle; I also invite exploration of resources and resiliency often found in such stressors.

If there is anything you should know about me, it is that I am passionate about my work as a psychotherapist. I love working with clients toward the changes they want to make in their lives. Therapy takes courage and I am humbled by that. It is an honor to share in people's lives. Therapy is a collaborative process. The most critical ingredient to successful therapy is the relationship you build with your therapist. If you don't feel comfortable, it will be difficult to share your deepest emotions and vulnerabilities.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
