"I spent my lifetime rushing to the aid of others as a firefighter and medic.  I failed to notice that I, too, was in desperate need of help.  Pride only caused more damage as my life fell apart because of PTSD and a traumatic past.  I encourage everyone that once you or others notice the signs of self-destruction, seek guidance.  Chris was a tremendous help aiding me on my road to recovery and healing.  She is compassionate, caring, and attentive to the needs of her clients.  I appreciated our sessions together and she certainly brought out the best in me".

"Chris genuinely cared about my issues and my treatment. Through the death of my mom and the loss of my beloved 18 year old dog she was always there for me.  She allowed me to work at my own pace, yet I was able to make much needed progress in my treatment of bipolar depression. I would highly recommend Chris to others". 

                                                                                              - Kate C 

"We began seeing Chris after 26 years of a rough marriage. I had little faith that it would help, as we had seen counselors before with no success. I was openly skeptical but figured we had nothing to lose. After just a few months things began to change. Things were revealed and started to make sense. I was still skeptical. After more time, and continuing to work with Chris, I can honestly say she has changed our lives. I cannot thank you enough, Chris. We appreciate your ease in scheduling and your down to earth communication! Thank you so very much. You're a life saver.

From colleagues:

"Chris is an insightful, compassionate counselor who joins quickly with clients to achieve immediate solutions to the most difficult issues individuals face. Chris consistently displays an engaging, positive and upbeat approach. This allows her to address marital and family issues successfully to build couple cohesion and strengthen family connectedness. I give Chris my highest recommendation".

Chris is an excellent supervisor with the ability to both encourage and challenge those with whom she works. Our sessions were value-rich, organized for maximum learning through case presentations, professional development, and critical thinking about therapeutic endeavors. Chris’s penchant for asking thought-provoking questions without pat answers never failed to push me out of the proverbial comfort zone. No reservations—I can recommend Chris as a supervisor and am thankful for what I learned through our time together.
