I started working with Chris as someone to talk with about things that I didn't think I could talk with my friends and family. Chris was helpful and challenging during this time. I wanted him to give me the answers but he encouraged me to work through my concerns and come up with a solution or strategy on my own. After many months of talking with Chris, I moved away from Nashville. My life took a major turn for the worse while I was away. Even though I had a new counselor, Chris was willing to talk with me over the phone a number of times. If I came back through Nashville, I often would set up an appointment to talk with him. After having worked through things with him while in Nashville, I needed the continuity of being able to talk things over with him without starting all over. I have moved again since I left Nashville in 2013. Chris was able to refer me to a counselor in my new city. There are still times that I email Chris with problems I am having and he has always been available to answer me back. I have continued to set up appointments with him whenever I am back in Nashville. He has never tried to take the place of my new counselor and has even at times told me I needed to talk more with my counselor about what is going on in my life. I continue to keep in touch with Chris because he has and continues to be a person who truly cares about me and what is going to happen in my life. I miss seeing him and hearing how he responds to my thoughts on issues. I would recommend Chris as a therapist to anyone who is looking for a friend who cares for you, no matter what has happened or is happening in your life. I'll be back to see Chris as I pass through Nashville.
