Chris has been a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Florida since 2019.  He graduated from the University of North Florida with a MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2014 and worked in community mental health for five years before joining us full time at TBC for CBT in November 2021.  While working in community mental health Chris was a supervisor, specializing in addiction counseling and implemented DBT as a treatment modality.   Chris works with teens and adults that suffer with behavioral, emotional, and cognitive mental health needs.  He will only be providing sessions via telehealth statewide for now since he lives in Jacksonville.  Eventually we hope to open an office in Jacksonville where he will be able to see clients locally there.

Chris has been interested in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and other evidence-based treatments since 2012 and has, since 2017 focused his practice solely with DBT.  He has attended several DBT trainings which include trainings that introduced him to TBC for CBT with Nancy Gordon, LCSW.  Chris was also a member of one of Nancy’s online DBT consultation team since 2019, with the goal to maintain and improve effectiveness with DBT.

Chris’ interest include training and playing with his dogs, camping and the theater.  He continues to be passionate about his pursuit of improving his practice with a goal of becoming a DBT Linehan Board Certified Clinician.

TBC for CBT is so excited to have Chris on our team!
