Chris followed his passion to help people as a therapist after 20 years of successful technology sales and management. He helps young (and not so young) adults and teenagers effectively manage depression, anger, unhealthy addictions, and the anxiety & stress that come along with our complex lives. Change is difficult for any of us, and for teens, with pressure coming from all directions, it can be especially overwhelming. Chris believes that we have the inherent ability to change from within, and his role as a professional is to provide his guidance with the proper therapeutic tools and the experience that he brings.
When someone takes that first step to call a counselor, they have reached a point of real pain that needs immediate attention. Chris begins with the immediate goal in mind, and then works with clients to develop skills to address deeper issues. Chris takes a whole person philosophy, giving consideration to mental, emotional, social, spiritual, and physical health. He recognizes the importance of motivation and finds it critical to explore meaning and purpose in clients’ lives. Originally from Chicago, Chris now lives with his beautiful wife and two teenage children in north Texas. His personal interests include running, reading, and experiencing new cultures. Chris has found ways to help people with professional, career, and spiritual guidance as a sales manager, a professional coach, and as a Stephen Minister. While achieving his Masters in Counseling at Amberton University, Chris conducted his practicum at Hope Strategies in Lewisville under the supervision of Kristy White, providing drug and alcohol assessments, substance abuse & anger management counseling, and teaching classes to small groups. Chris is a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern under the supervision of Tiffany Smith, MS, LPC-S, LMFT-S, NCC.
