My experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized, psychological care and counseling. I treat a number of mental health disorders and provide a neutral ground for individuals, families, and couples.
My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. This is achieved by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan. I will draw from a variety of therapeutic techniques to assist in meeting your personal goals.
I promise to treat you with dignity, respect, and openness as we work towards healing and your personal goals. I believe that your uniqueness in perspective, values, and identity is essential in our work together.
Christopher is a native North Carolinian who completed both his undergraduate and graduate training at the University of North Carolina. He has worked in the human services field since 2001 and began practicing psychotherapy in 2005. He possesses extensive experience working with both adolescents and adults. Prior to opening his private practice in 2011, he worked in a residential setting for adolescents and then several years as a court counselor for the Department of Juvenile Justice. His experience working with adults was established through several years in the community mental health system, Department of Veteran's Affairs "Rehabilitative Services," and five years at the University of North Carolina's Counseling and Wellness Services.
Christopher has received extensive training in both Cognitive Behavioral, Mindfulness Based Self Compassion, and Exposure and Response Prevention. He maintains that individuals respond differently to therapeutic styles; thus, he also incorporates a variety of techniques from mindfulness, solution focused, narrative, and insight oriented therapies.
Counseling and psychotherapy are collaborative experiences in which you take an in-depth look at your life, perspectives, and behaviors and explore what may be working and what may not with a trained professional. Each individual experiences life in one's own unique way, with one's own set of personal values and goals. Sometimes, life circumstances can create a disconnect or a conflict with a person's values. Sometimes, people try their best and cannot change the way they feel. "Good people" can experience depression, anxiety, anger, grief, substance abuse, trauma, and other circumstances, which, with the assistance of a trained professional, can be resolved. I am committed to providing you with a safe, respectful atmosphere to discuss these personal and difficult issues and provide support for change and growth through the most up to date, clinically effective treatment.
