Chris has specialized training in trauma and child therapy. He helps kids and adults get unstuck when life circumstances create barriers.
As one of the only male trauma-focused children’s therapists in Langley and the Fraser Valley, Chris brings a positive male presence to children who are often in the midst of family division. He uses play and talk therapy to explore the roots of behavioural issues, and to help children and their parents work through the trauma of abuse, mental health issues and marital conflict.
I have a lifelong passion for helping kidsr overcome hardship—abuse, trauma, anxiety or just the daily stress that comes from living in a divided home.
I take a person-centered, humanistic approach as I help children and adults become the best version of themselves. My goal is to give new hope to kids (and to their parents) as I help them step into daily life with security, certainty, and joy.
I have a Masters of Arts Degree in Counselling Psychology (MACP) and a BA (Hons) in Psychology with a minor in Sociology, and a Human Services Certificate from Trinity Western University. Much of my practice deals with trauma, and I have specialized training in two specific trauma therapies: Lifespan Integration and Observed and Experiential Integration.
I’m driven by a desire to see healing at every stage of life, to help people move forward in healthy, full relationships—no matter what happened in the past.
My Approach to Therapy
I work with children and adults who feel stuck—like they can’t move beyond the abuse or trauma they’ve experienced, even if it took place long ago.
My approach is not to treat symptoms from the top down, but to create lasting change from the bottom up. It’s a highly client-centered approach, rooted in my belief that we all have the inner ability to help ourselves.
For adults and older children this usually takes the form of talk therapy. For acute, intense memories and backgrounds I use specific trauma therapies. For children I use play and art in a mostly child-led approach.
These approaches help you or your child break out of unhelpful relationship patterns that undermine your inner strength, so you can move forward with healthy attachments and firm relationships.
At Treehouse Trauma Centre we help children, adolescents and adults heal from trauma in Langley and the Fraser Valley
Treehouses are havens. And while not everyone can have an actual treehouse, we all need a place that offers friendship, comfort and security. Somewhere we’re free to BE ourselves on the path to becoming our BEST selves.
At Treehouse Trauma Centre, we offer people a haven—a place where those who’ve experienced trauma learn how to identify, process and move beyond the hurt and live life with purpose and joy. Using proven therapy techniques, our team of therapists works with people of all ages, from young children to teens to adults, on the path to healing and hope.
A treehouse represents the deepest desires of childhood: a place where we find comfort, safety, security and freedom
At Treehouse Trauma Centre, we help children, teens and adults overcome the hardships—trauma, abuse, anxiety or stress—that keep them from living fully. Our person-centred, humanistic approach helps adults and children break out of unhealthy relationship patterns that undermine their inner strength and equips them to move forward with security, certainty and joy
