Human relationships and sexuality are a fundamental part of being fulfilled and self-expressed. Christopher is committed to challenging the beliefs that keep you from celebrating the wonder of relationships in all their forms. You have a unique personality and unique talents to offer the world, and Christopher can help you identify and work through the problems preventing you from reaching your full potential. The best goal in life is to fully be YOU!
Christopher is married with two children. He spends much of his free time with them and his extended family. When he is not providing counseling services, Christopher enjoys a variety of creative pursuits, as well as speaking to individuals and groups regarding a range of therapeutic and addictive issues. In addition, he tries to take advantage of the summer months (hard to come by in WA state!) by hiking, camping, and enjoying nature.
