Meet Chris


Life can be difficult. Far too many people suffer traumatic events or experience loss that leaves them in deep emotional pain. Perhaps struggling with a mental illness steals away their purpose and resilience for life. This is why I strive to offer a safe, compassionate, and professional space for people who are hurting. 

My clients soon learn that our time together is a collaboration where we have empowering conversations that include sometimes speaking hard truths, facing difficult life choices, and making necessary changes. Throughout our work in the therapy space, I am devoted to making our time together important and impactful.
