Chris’ approach is primarily collaborative and solution focused, while incorporating elements of mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy.

Keeping this in mind, Chris prioritizes the relationship he has with each client in order to foster a space in which they can flourish.

Chris has extensive experience working with recovery, trauma, grief and anxiety disorders. In addition, he has specialized training in working with diverse populations,
