I would like to share a little bit about 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 and got my undergraduate degree in Sociology in Kenosha and grew up. I am also a Licensed Professional Counselor in WI and IL.
Communication, nondiscrimination, trust, and confidentiality are major cornerstones of my counseling practice. I've been practicing for about 20 years now, and I have a very solution-focused approach to counseling. I've been working in and out of various educational clusters, and I've also worked for the State of Wisconsin Division of Vocational Rehabilitation as a counselor.

My time with Christopher was really enlightening. He gave me to tools I needed to move forward. Very helpful and highly recommended.
I am beyond grateful for the help I have received from Christopher. Initially, I was extremely hesitant about beginning therapy online, but with every session, I not only became comfortable in therapy, but more comfortable in my own skin. These unprecedented times regarding the COVID-19 pandemic had led me to fall into a hole I didn't think I would ever get out of. Christopher renewed my optimism and helped me see that every season brings something new and that celebrating myself, authentically, is what will help me find joy.
Christopher helped me find my self-worth again after a pretty bad breakup. We worked through some of my repetitive, self-destructive behaviors so that I could love myself first, and relationships second. So thankful for his help!
Christopher is an expert in his area, Death & Dying. Yes, that's right, and if you think you don't need support in this area, then you may want to reconsider. I came to Christopher through my EAP when I reached out for help when both of my parents were diagnosed with COVID within a week of my brother finding out he had cancer. Christopher not only helped me re-affirm my inner strength & coping skills, but he has been invaluable in helping me have difficult life & end -of-life planning discussions with my family. I am eternally grateful for Christopher, his clear & concise ways of communicating are exactly what is needed to navigate these conversations.
I found my counseling sessions with Christopher extremely helpful. I started counseling due to some anxiety, stress, and indecision about my future career, as well as the pandemic. Christopher was solutions-oriented and helped me find tangible ways that I could get on the right path. Christopher was great at listening to the issues I was experiencing, helping me find solutions, and checking in on my progress. He was so nice and always respected my time! I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking help.
Christopher was incredibly supportive and helped me work through my feelings. He was flexible on scheduling in a very busy time. He put an emphasis on connection in a world of remote-only conversation.
Christopher Gerou was extremely helpful during our sessions together. He listened well, offered insightful observations and communicated back quickly on messenger. I strongly recommend booking a session with him, as he helped me navigate a rough patch.
