Hello everyone, my name is Christian Waller. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I received my Master's degree from Augusta University in 2017. Since my graduation, I have provided both individual and group therapeutic services to children, teens, and adults. Although my primary focus is working with processing trauma and reducing the effects of traumatic stress, I have gained experience working with anxiety, depression, OCD, anxieties/concerns with discovering/exploring sexuality and/or gender expression, and other areas that individuals would like to process in session.
I have been trained in providing several evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and I tend to use techniques from each in my therapeutic approach. In TF-CBT, I learned about the ABCs and I thoroughly believe that affect (emotions), behaviors, and cognitions are all related in how we experience our own realities.
I believe that goals are substantial in the therapeutic process, and although they might be hard to discover, they give us a guideline and somewhat of an endpoint. Not everything can be accomplished in a session, but short-term goals and long-term goals can help us maintain our focus. No goal is set in stone; sometimes when we start off, we realize we want a redirection or to tweak it, and that is totally okay as well. Having options and different routes can be overwhelming at times, but they also tend to show us that we have more choices than we initially thought we had.
I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion regardless of gender, age, sexuality, or any other difference. Being able to recognize and become open to both differences and similarities help us create a more secure environment and it allows us to figure out how to meet your personal and specific needs. I look forward to working with you.

Responds in a timely manner, friendly, offers great advice, listens to me without judgement
I've not been with Christian long, but already I'm overwhelmed at the attentiveness and understanding he portrays. He is very aware of my needs and tendencies already... knows when I'm isolating and reaches out in a caring manner... I have been through several theraposts over my 20 years in therapy, but he's by far one of the best connections I've made.
Christian Waller is like a ray of sunshine. I look forward to our discussions. He goes to great lengths to accommodate my schedule and I can always count on him for a positive or uplifting suggestion.
Christian is wonderful. He is a great listener and I feel that he’s very genuine. When he has mentioned giving me resources he has quickly sent them after our chats. I definitely recommend him. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Great listener and keen observer to problems. He will really sit with you and show empathy even as you cry. I enjoyed my time with Christian
I really couldn’t have been matched with a better therapist. Christian is kind understanding and makes sure to find the root of the problem all while explaining the process. He is a great listener - I often find myself feeling like I have too much going on in my brain and I get overwhelmed because I can’t pinpoint one issue and Christian has done wonders to help me learn to help myself in these situations as well as just listening to me while I unload every thought or fear in my brain and he has a great way of organizing those thoughts and laying them out for me I a manner that isn’t overwhelming. 12/10 recommend
I have already learned so much from this experience and look forward to more growth ❤️
Christian is helping me a lot
Christian has been so supportive from the very first session. He let's me voice my thoughts and then asks questions that make me take a deeper look into those thoughts and why I have them. He's been a great person to talk to and I am learning a lot about myself and how to grow due to Christian's advise.
