Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.
— Salvador Dali

The fact that Chris is interested in everyone is evident in his open-hearted manner. With his welcoming smile, he effortlessly draws you in to the therapeutic space and process, offering support, insight, and a plan for action as you go.

Skillful with couples, Chris also enjoys working with college students and adults of all ages. He utilizes an eclectic, client-centered approach that incorporates psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, strengths-based, relational, and Gestalt elements. Clients affect positive change and gain insight into their lives through trusting the therapeutic relationship – a relationship between client and therapist that thrives on open collaboration and honest communication. Chris nurtures that relationship by providing a safe, judgment-free environment in which to explore issues such as grief and loss, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, caregiver fatigue, and conflict resolution.

Chris is comfortable assisting individuals with concerns around gender identity and/or sexual preference, and welcomes people of all choices and persuasions into his practice. His calm, accepting approach is a balm, and offers the foundation for deep enduring change.

 ALL Westside therapists welcome and affirm members of the LGBTQI community, as well as any other groups who struggle for support, acceptance, and recognition.
