My name is Christopher W. Anderson and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) and Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor (LADC) in the state of Minnesota. Additionally, I am also a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, with over 5 years of experience in the mental health field and 7 years as a career counselor.
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults, & families around issues of depression/anxiety, behavioral concerns, parenting, relationships/family issues, adjustment/transitions, trauma, and substance counseling. During sessions, you can expect compassion and understanding, it is my goal to provide a safe space that is gentle, collaborative, and direct in order to help you better understand and find a solution to current or long-standing challenges through a trauma sensitive approach. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach uses or combines Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) or Motivational interviewing (MI) depending on which approach would be best for each client.
Prior to entering the counseling profession, I retired as a Sergeant from the United States Marine Corps. I have specialties in addiction counseling, working with people within the legal system, and military and veterans. I look forward to supporting and guiding you on your journey to improved mental health.
I am available to work with you by email, chat, and/or phone/video sessions. I look forward to working with you.
