""I empower my clients to transform, heal, and thrive."

About Chris

As a licensed clinical social worker, I specialize in working with diverse and challenging clients dealing with mental health and substance abuse issues. My practice focus includes a wide range of concerns, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, and life transitions. I am passionate about empowering clients through a strong therapeutic relationship and fostering a supportive, non-judgmental environment that enables them to address personal life challenges effectively.

The most common problems my clients struggle with include mental health concerns and substance abuse issues. To help them, I utilize various treatment approaches like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and motivational interviewing. These evidence-based methods are tailored to each client's needs, enabling them to effectively address their issues and make positive life changes.

When things are better, my clients will experience a more meaningful and balanced life, feeling empowered and capable of overcoming challenges. My clinical personality can be described as conscientious, insightful, compassionate, and energetic. I am committed to professionalism, detailed documentation, and building rapport quickly with my clients, creating a safe and supportive environment for collaboration.

I know that taking the first step can be daunting, but remember you're not alone. I'm here to offer a compassionate, empathetic space for your journey towards personal growth. Together, we'll build a strong therapeutic relationship to create meaningful change. Reach out to me, and let's work together to help you achieve the balanced life you truly deserve.

When we begin care, I thoroughly assess your unique needs, background, and individual circumstances to select the most suitable therapy type for you. By considering your specific challenges, goals, and personal preferences, I customize evidence-based treatment approaches to ensure the best possible outcomes, helping you make positive life changes and effectively address your concerns on your journey to well-being.
