About Me

Over the last 25+years I have worked with many teens in foster care, post adoptive homes, juvenile court involved, gang involved, pregnant teens, and substance misusing teens of various racial, ethnic, cultural, and diverse communities and over a wide range of issues and challenges. These include depression anxiety, autism, ADHD, and legal issues. It takes a lot of courage to seek help and my approach Is highly collaborative where we will seek to venture down the pathway to healing and feeling better together. Regarding your challenges and discomfort, parents are the expert I am the partner with you and together we will forge a way out of what might seem like darkness into the light. I look forward to working with you and your child/teen.

Written by G.A. on Jun 21, 2022 after therapy with Christopher for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, bipolar disorder, and compassion fatigue

Chris's support has been invaluable, a literal life saver. I had a mental breakdown and he was able to support me gently though firmly, setting me back on track. He was professional though friendly, an excellent listener and sounding board, offering precious insights into my reactions, triggers, and emotions. Thanks to his honesty and transparency, I always felt safe. Within seven months I'm back to healthy. He helped me figured out the source of my discomfort and address/remove them from my life. I will be forever grateful!

He is always thoughtful in his responses and guidance. Often helps me formulate what I can’t seem to have expressed to anyone prior. Thankful to have him as my counselor.
