"And yet one can't forever stand on the shore; at some point, even if filled with indecision, skepticism, reservation and doubt, you either jump in or concede that life is forever elsewhere."
"The nature of life is change; and the nature of people is to resist change.”
"Don't become a mere recorder of facts, but try to penetrate the mystery of their origin."
Working with trauma is as much about remembering how we survived
as it is about what is broken.”

training and personal experience have given me insight and sensitivity into this
life-changing wound. It would be my privilege to work with you as you seek to navigate through your grief and learn
to live in the new normal after your loss.
Depression and anxiety can hijack the brain. Convincing us that we are hopeless,
worthless, trapped, we then develop a myopic point of view and only find evidence to reinforce this false narrative.
“I’m no good.”
“I haven’t accomplished anything in my life.”
But this is not true. It’s a lie. Together we will
challenge this lie that denies you as a unique person,

"I had been in therapy for 22 years, and it wasn’t until I sat across from Chris that I began to understand the source of my trauma. It was a tough, grief filled process with a lot of tears and it gave me so much relief. I was so reluctant to face it. Chris made me feel safe and gave meroom to rediscover myself."
"Chris is a warm hearted therapist and truly one of a kind. He has helped me open up and see how my family issues affected all my relationships."
