Chris has spent his entire career working in helping professions. He enters the counseling world after receiving his masters from Fort Hays State University. He is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).

Chris’s primary work is focused on relationships, personal growth and life transitions. His person-centered approach is built around helping clients see their own inherent value and using that as a launching point for change. Though he works a lot in the areas mentioned, Chris believes this approach is great for helping clients with a wide range of needs.

Chris adheres to the belief shared by Carl Rogers (1961) when he wrote, “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” Chris approaches therapy from the belief that a client’s current position in their life journey is a great launching point for growth.
