In working with trauma, Chris integrates evidenced-based therapies to help clients access their own inner healing capacity and change how their pasts are informing their present and future. Trauma disconnects us from ourselves and others, and Chris believes, if we can reconnect with ourselves and reintegrate our mind, body and soul, we can be empowered to live more authentically.
