I want to share a bit of myself. I graduated from Concordia University Wisconsin with my Masters in Counseling; I also attended Hood College in Maryland and graduated with another Maters in Thanatology (Thanatology or Deathlore is the scientific study of death and the losses brought about as a result). Then I attended Carthage College, got my undergraduate degree in Sociology in Kenosha, and grew up. I am also a Licensed Professional Counselor in WI and IL.

Christopher was very kind and helped me get through a difficult period during the pandemic. In a time when we were all very disconnected he helped me feel more connected.

Christopher is very professional, kind and respectful. Great listener, gives positive feedback. He checks up and makes me feel validated. He has helped me a lot in just a short spam of time. I highly recommend him and he deserves a recognition. Thank you.

Christopher has really helped me overcome some family trauma and drama. He really helped me find the correct perspective that allowed me to let go of a lot of things. I’ve learned so much from this man. Thanks, Christopher!

Mr Gerou is the best therapist I’ve had, he listens well, and is very casual with being late or busy etc. I had an excellent experience and would definitely recommend him to others. He read me like a book on our first two sessions and knows how to make me laugh when I was upset.
