We clearly live in an imperfect world replete with hardship, brokenness, emotional pain and suffering. In this reality, Christian brings a warm strength-based style and a love of self-compassion to his therapy. Christian encourages the practice of recognizing and responding better to painful triggers both past and present. He believes that we grow by being honest and by taking ownership of our internal and behavioral experiences. We do this by practicing helpful responses and behaviors in safe settings. Regular practice leads to an increase in emotion-regulation skills, mindful awareness, and learning to relate more effectively with others. These skills provide the sails to move forward toward things that are important and meaningful to each of us.
