Christopher is a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology candidate, a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), and a member of the Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists. Drawing on his psychotherapy studies as well as his background as an actor, educator, and activist, Christopher brings his diverse personal and professional experience into the therapy room. While working with Christopher, you can expect to explore your life in a nonjudgmental, supportive, and creative space. He specializes in working with adolescents and adults, sexual and gender minorities, arts workers, and other members of gig economies.
Through a trauma-informed lens, Christopher's work focuses on understanding how we exist in relationship with others and how our present lives continue to be affected by relational experiences from the past. This way of healing is well suited for those suffering from anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, relationship struggles, and work-related stress.
Christopher has studied and integrates psychodynamic, humanistic, narrative, experiential, and cognitive behavioural approaches to support you in achieving your desired outcomes. In addition to his formal training, he regularly engages in independent study through institutions such as the Austen-Riggs Centre and the Toronto Psychoanalytic Society.
Christopher brings his passions for language, stories, and social justice to his work. Truly understanding yourself involves engaging with your life story, putting your life in the context of the social, cultural, and systemic forces that have affected you. This is a process of understanding what has been wrong for you, not what is wrong with you.
