About me

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Kentucky with over 13 years of experience working as a psychotherapist/counselor in Owensboro, Henderson, Morganfield, Glasgow, and Columbia Kentucky. I have provided treatment for adults, teens, and children with a wide range of symptoms including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, stress, and substance abuse/addiction. I have also helped many people who have experienced legal problems, physical trauma and emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, and client centered. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels; the only labels that concern me are confident, mature, happy, and proud. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavior therapy, emotional maturity, reality therapy, and motivational interviewing. I will tailor our therapeutic treatment plan to meet your unique and specific are the foremost expert on your life.

It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and motivation to take the first steps towards being your own change agent. If you believe you are ready to begin searching for increased motivation, confidence, and overall happiness I am here to support, guide, and empower you every step of the way.

I look forward to working with and for you!

I am so grateful for my time with Christopher. We quickly built a genuine connection. This was my first experience with virtual therapy and it really worked well for me, thanks to his empathy and ability to connect through the screen. If I rejoin BetterHelp, I will request him again!

Chris has helped me through this journey of addiction, as well as some issues with my family. He helped me feel understood as he listened to every word and thought behind those words, and always gave words of encouragement, even for the smallest accomplishment that I didn't even catch. He also challenged my own thoughts to think in a bigger perspective, see what I can control, so that I can take control of my life and make it more productive and meaningful.
