Chris has over fifteen years of experience in the mental health field, working with adults, families and adolescents, in both, clinic and community settings.  Beyond the clinical session, Chris has experience with facilitating groups for adults in chemical health treatment, as well as facilitating groups with young people experiencing chemical health, anger, sexual identity and relationship issues.

Chris is trained in variety of treatment modalities and currently focuses all of his practice based on the model and theories of ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy).  He finds that this treatment approach is very flexible, effective and seems to work best for the needs of his clients.  He has a great passion for supporting clients in creating an understanding of the challenges they face, and building up hope while creating solutions that bring about the changes they desire.  He actively engages with clients in goal setting and progress monitoring and believes the client needs to be active throughout the change process.

In his free time, Chris enjoys being outside with his family, playing and writing music and doing home improvement projects.

Why Do You Work at PrairieCare?
