Cristen Chiri, MSCP, LPC, BC-TMH
About Cristen Chiri
My therapeutic style is spontaneous, curious, warm, and accepting. I am known to be direct without being too abrasive. I join with you to explore your life within a safe environment, in a relationship grounded in trust and respect. I spend a lot of time in the beginning connecting with people to first, understand. I also spend time empowering people, giving you your power back, and sometimes helping you find it for the first time. Have you been feeling misunderstood, out of control, burnt out, or helpless? I believe in the power of resources, authority, and agency in our lives to create the lives we want so that we can live them fully.
My approach is informed by the sum of all the aspects of your life that make you who you are. This means we are focusing on you as a person, rather than a cluster of symptoms. I work well with clients whom are motivated to make change in their lives.
I am familiar with the vast effects of trauma, attachment related challenges, manifestations of anxiety, and the implications of unmet needs. I help my clients to stablize themselves in the present moment. I encourage mutual feedback from my clients so that I might better serve you. I often utilize the mind body connection to empower clients in understanding their own free will, self determination, and ability to cope with difficulties.
I know asking for help is often the hardest part of seeking help. I welcome the opportunity to meet with you and see if I might be a good fit to help you with the changes you're looking to make in your life.
