Get to know Christopher
LPC and supervisor with more than 27 years of experience. Chris has been an invaluable member of the Lifeologie team since 2006. He’s our go-to for trauma, PTSD, major depression, long lasting anxiety, out of control anger, 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 manage life decades later. Read our article about complex trauma.
It’s Chris that launched us into our work with First Responders and Veterans. He has great appreciation for both professions and the liberties they afford his family. He can help lesson the pain of responders’ compounded trauma, as well as the vicarious trauma experienced by the families that love ‘em.
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?” Closely related, Chris can help with college difficulties of all kinds – from mild homesickness to severe functional issues.
Chris Jones grew up in a small town south of the metroplex. He remains close to his small town roots (really— he drives his RV to NASCAR) and enjoys a relaxed lifestyle with his smart, pretty wife and his two terrific daughters. Empty nesting now but for awhile he endured two teenagers under roof at the same time. His street cred is solid.
A Licensed Professional Counselor (1996) and approved Licensed Professional Counselor supervisor, Chris received both his bachelors and masters degrees in psychology from Baylor University in Waco.
Chris is a certified EMDR clinician – and if you don’t know about EMDR, click this link and read up. EMDR is a cutting edge and highly tested technique which uses neuropsychological and structural components of the brain to treat trauma, depression, complex anxiety and a number of other severe issues. Chris will frequently incorporate Inner Family Systems (IFS) into his trauma work.
Chris has spent quality years working in a variety of clinical settings with adolescents and adults. His clinical experience ranges from the ROPES course to corporate trainings to juvenile probation to psychiatric hospitals to private practice. Well rounded is a proper description.
If you can’t find him in the office, he is likely off running a marathon or keeping a seat warm at Texas Motor Speedway.
