I want to take the opportunity to thank you for reaching out to me. I want to introduce myself. I am Christopher Gerou, and I have practiced counseling for over 27 years. I want to invite you to email or call for an appointment. I offer either a video chat or phone to discuss your challenges more. I look forward to working with you and am interested in where we will go as we start this process of helping you find a solution to the issues you want to address. I’m also open to serving businesses on a limited basis as a grief counselor, during a crisis need or death in the workplace, or in Professional Development.
I am a Thanatologist, which comes from (Thanatology or Deathlore, the scientific study of death and the losses brought about as a result). I have a passion for this field of study and grief work. I've worked on crisis teams, served as a Trauma Specialist, worked in funeral homes and hospice, and taught "Issues of Living and Dying" at the college level.
I have a very solution-focused approach to counseling. I practice with four core principles: Communication, nondiscrimination, trust, and confidentiality are the cornerstone of my practice. These four principles allow me to help you find a balance in your life and happiness where you haven't been able to.
