Chris Love, Psychologist
About this pro
The journey of psychological care commences and ends with trust. The moment a person begins working with his or her psychotherapist is a time of discovery for both the person and the therapist. There are these complex patterns of interwoven feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors which can often feel overwhelming. However, over time, a person can learn new ways of understanding his or her difficult situation. In every therapeutic problem, I will walk with you during your journey and narrate to you what I see. In turn, you get to make up your mind what you will do, and you will have my support. I serve the San Bernardino mountain communities, including Crestline and Lake Arrowhead. I will work to understand the presenting problems and offer empirically validated solutions that have been proven to work with many people in similar situations. The primary goal of my practice is to provide you with professional-quality psychological services that address your needs and to provide you with an opportunity to develop solutions to the challenges you face. Deciding to see a psychotherapist is sometimes a difficult decision. Many questions often come up. Will this person understand my problems? What will my family think about me seeing a shrink? Will I be able to get the help I need? These are common types of questions people face when dealing with serious issues that are not easy to repair. If the problems were easy, why bother with seeing a psychologist? Although no psychological service can promise to fix anything, providing a holistic, person-centered, and spiritually sensitive environment to develop an understanding of the problem and potential solutions to problems is a primary goal of my psychological practice. For clients requiring psychological assessment, I offer a full range of assessment services for older children and adolescents, adults, couples, and seniors. The needs of the assessment will determine the psychological instruments that are used. At the completion of the assessment, a treatment plan will be provided.
