Do you have a nagging voice inside that is wondering when you will make YOU a priority? Engaging in therapy can bring clarity, growth, understanding, and change. Starting the process though is nerve wracking & overwhelming. I work with clients to create a nurturing, non-judgmental environment where you can express your "unedited" self, learn new skills, and build better relationships(with yourself too!). While this learning can occur independently with the use of self-help tools, working collaboratively with a therapist can make the journey toward change faster, less isolating, and even sometimes a bit fun.

As my real-life Social Worker Hero, Brene Brown, stated, "Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded.

In all his work, Chris always looks towards your empowerment and in that provides guidance and helps you to truly recognize your strengths and how to build upon them. Most every appointment is available and is as effective by phone or video chat (Zoom or FaceTime), and can further be more expeditiously scheduled these ways. Guidance, support, and objectivity are key elements in any service provided along with the addition of any tools and action plans as appropriate that have you manifest more of what you want being an active agent of your own change. Chris' experience is with ages 4 and up with children, adolescents, and adults.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
