Cris comes to our practice as a mature gentleman passionately pursuing a new vocation. After years in the world of mass media, from writing to publishing to lecturing to satellite communications, he now wants to engage in the most individual, empathetic way possible. A marriage and family therapist who also enjoys working with individuals, Cris spent the last decade working with adolescents, adults, groups and on the streets with the homeless. Cris is an Adlerian/Jungian therapist who takes a holistic, narrative approach and specializes in depression, trauma, and disruptive emotions. He has been trained in both Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and EMDR. Cris has been practicing meditation for fifty years and takes joy in coaching people how to be mindful. Recognizing that we all have our own unique life histories and stories, Cris prides himself on being non-judgmental and supportive, however will not hesitate to challenge what Adler termed “mistaken beliefs” when necessary. Having lived for a year or more in places like New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Denver, Minneapolis and even Tokyo, Cris would like to believe he brings a lifetime of experience and a certain degree of wisdom to his therapeutic work.
