Chris is great so far. He listens well and understands my issues. He validates my thoughts and emotions. I feel safe talking to him. He is also funny and has a good sense of humor. I also like that he is logic and numbers based a lot of the time. That helps me quantify my emotions which are often overwhelming.
Unfortunately, I was unable to continue sessions with Chris due to a financial issue and time management with me going back to school. However, I feel that in our few sessions Chris was a great listener and was able to really help me workout some stressors I've been facing. I definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a respectful and professional counselor. You will never feel judged and he just listens. Its a nice environment to be in. I hope in the future I can continue my sessions with Chris and I'm sad I had to take a break from a great organization where I felt I was making progress.
Christopher seems like a well-meaning man, but he is very lacking in responses. I usually only received one reply a day, with a sentence or two at most. After sending him multiple paragraphs of my thoughts/feelings. While I appreciate he wanted to set goals, there were never any specific goals set or made.
