Chris Conley

(MA, LPC)

About Me

Hi, my name is Chris and I am passionate about helping people find peace and clarity.

I've spent my years as a counselor working with a wide variety of people ranging from elementary aged children, up to retirement aged adults (and everyone in between!) I have been able to help people find peace and clarity for themselves through all sorts of struggles including depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, career challenges, and parenting concerns. I have also helped many people who have experienced sexual, physical, and emotional abuse find peace with their past.

My counseling style is relaxed, as I want you to feel comfortable as we look for peace and clarity together. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and compassion no matter what sort of troubles they may be working through. My hope is that no matter what has brought you here, that we would be able to find some peace and clarity together.

Written by M.E. on Aug 07, 2019 after counseling with Chris for 2 years on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and bipolar disorder

Chris is a source of great wisdom and comfort to me. I have been working with him for almost two years now and can't imagine my life without him. Signing up for BetterHelp was one of the best decisions I ever made. Getting Chris as my counselor was one of the luckiest things that has happened to me.

I have been talking with Chris for a couple of months now and he has been amazing. He has given me some really good tools for managing my anxiety and working through problems in the moment. The worksheets he gives are extremely helpful and I love the weekly inspirations he sends. He’s guided me through answering my own questions even when I don’t really know what my question or problem is at first. My progress has been amazing for me personally and I am so so glad that I have Chris in my corner when I need help.

I’m lucky to have been paired with Chris. He has a relaxed and no nonsense style of counseling that has made me very comfortable. He is patient and genuine and I know he is concerned about me.

This is my first time to try "online counseling," and I am glad I did!
I have been working with Chris for almost three years now, and his advice, knowledge, support, and expertise has changed my life so much! Chris listens to me and has taught me problem-solving techniques, as well as how to understand and cope with my emotions.
I am truly blessed to have found him, and I highly recommend him!

Written by C.Y. on Jul 07, 2018 after counseling with Chris for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping, self esteem, and anger

He is honestly the best and most down to earth therapist I've ever had. He is honest and tells things how they are and it has helped me and opened my eyes to a lot of things and helped me push through a very rough patch in my life!

Written by A.L. on Apr 10, 2018 after counseling with Chris for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Chris is one of the best counselors I’ve worked with so far. I feel like he actually listens and doesn’t respond just for responding sake. He actually gets it and in all my history of seeing a therapist I’ve never felt more comfortable with someone other than Chris.

Thanks Chris....

Written by L.E. on Jan 22, 2018 after counseling with Chris for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family, and self esteem

Chris is by far one of the best counselors I have ever had the pleasure to interact with. He is so down to Earth and places himself on the same level as you. He doesn’t make himself as if he’s better than you or that you must listen to him and follow all his recommendations, because he’s “the counselor”. He takes what you say and helps you to dig down to the root cause of whatever you are going through. I am so thankful for Chris! He is such a valuable asset to BetterHelp. He is the reason I decided to give BetterHelp another try!

Written by A.N. on Dec 19, 2017 after counseling with Chris for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and trauma and abuse

It's taken me years to find someone who fit perfectly with what I needed. Chris is an exceptional counselor, he helped me through some of my darkest times with a kind approach and a solid expertise. I got over things I'd been struggling with for years in a surprisingly small amount of time due to his techniques. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Written by E... on Oct 23, 2017 after counseling with Chris for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, intimacy-related, parenting, and self esteem

Chris is amazing at finding the root of an issue there by dealing with the actual problem not the symptoms. He always responds in a timely manner making you feel like you are a priority. He has great listening skills and takes the time to ask clarifying questions to make sure he understands what you mean. He has great tools to help you transition from a bad habit into good habits. He radiates confidence and trust and security. Confiding in him comes easy.

Chris is great! Very attentive and helps you see things at the core, so that you can improve and understand it yourself. Made me feel safe opening up and showed genuine concern for what I was going through. I felt understood and like a giant hand was there to help pick me up. He allows me the space to sort everything out the way that works for me and encouraged me to explore different ways of self expression beyond the conventional.
