His main area of expertise has been helping clients cope with stressful and traumatic experiences. He has presented many seminars and trainings in the community and is a leader in the field, providing quality supervision to others. He has served as both a Clinical Supervisor and Clinical Director.

Chris' primary approach is to cultivate a safe, non-judgmental, and supportive relationship. He is very committed to his clients, and he believes in practical treatment. All interventions utilized are based on proven strategies that target a particular problem area. For example, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy combats depressive symptoms by targeting self-defeating thoughts and a lack of emotional awareness. In addition, Chris is trained in EMDR, which is beneficial for processing past traumatic experiences.

Chris' former clients now experience increased happiness and decreased worry. They feel better and more confident, and they often discover love in their relationships. Chris is confident that he can assist clients in accomplishing their goals.
