Chad is an award winning therapist and published author who enjoys working with teens & adults on their own, as a couple, or as a family. With over ten year’s experience, Chad has had the privilege of seeing many people grow in incredible ways and achieve their goals. He has even had particular luck with men who were originally against seeing a therapist, teens who were nervous about sharing with an adult, and people who have had poor experience with previous therapists. As a person and therapist, Chad is often described as safe, which is largely the result of two main factors. The first is he has a background in writing and performing comedy, which is an incredible tool (he knows when and when not to use this) for making the therapy office feel comfortable, and to ease any hesitations or fears. The second reason many people feel safe with Chad is he has been described as an interesting blend of both masculine and feminine qualities. This balance helps his clients feel safe that Chad can handle hearing whatever issues need to be presented while, at the same time, helping all parties feel understood. It also means Chad can navigate through sensitive topics with strength and calmness that would otherwise lead to emotional outbursts while, at the same time, providing the gentleness needed for allowing both men and women to be able to share what’s on their hearts. This balance allows people to feel safe enough to laugh, to cry, and to feel good about themselves, which ultimately helps all people involved feel understood and cared about. His background and training also gives him the advantage of being able to address situations from both a faith perspective and non religious view depending on what each client prefers.
His years of experience, in addition to his three Masters’ degrees and his training in CBT, EFT, DBT, logic therapy, and solution-focused therapy, have helped him develop a large tool kit of exercises with proven ability to aid in understanding and guidance for growth. This background allows him to develop personalized programs to best serve each individual client.
