LPC and LPC supervisor, Chris has been an invaluable member of the Lifeologie team since 2006. He’s our go-to dude for trauma, PTSD, major depression, long-lasting anxiety, out-of-control anger, probation, borderline personality, narcissistic personality, and abuse recovery. Chris has a talent for working with individuals who grew up in a chaotic home and are now struggling to find their way. Read our article about complex trauma.
Chris also has a knack for helping the young professional, age 20 –30ish, who is trying to adjust to a real job, real relationship, first time parenting, professional success, and “Is this really what I want to do for the rest of my life?” He works with individuals, couples, and almost-couples to help them find direction in this challenging time.
Chris is also great with those “failure to launch” kids – you know – that 24-year old who is still sleeping in their old high school room under YOUR roof? Chris can help with college difficulties of all kinds – from mild homesickness to severe functional issues.
Chris has a successful history working with teenagers who’ve survived abuse, feel anxious, have ADHD or are struggling to adjust to a life-changing event such as a change in schools or parents’ divorce. He can also help with the extremely moody teenager. We send him the ones who have sagging grades, sagging pants, suicidal thinking, depression, and possible drug use. His unique skill is helping parents who are making one final stand against the really tough kid.
