My Approach to Helping

Are you struggling with recurring negative thoughts, emotions, behaviors and habits? Do you cope with life’s issues with substances or poor decisions, feeling trapped, with little or no hope? If so, I believe I can help you with that. Hello, my name is Chris Coleman, and I am licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Maryland and for telehealth in Florida. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Substance Abuse Treatment Provider., and entered the field in 1994. With that said, it’s not as important of how much I know that you care about. You want to know how much I care and how I use what I know, right? With compassion, empathy and skill, let’s work together, to get you, liberated.

My primary theoretical approaches are Cognitive Behavioral, Reality (Choice), Motivational Interviewing (Enhancement), Solution Focused. I utilize the evidenced-based approaches from the scientific training, yet, my base and strength of therapy, come from a faith-based model, which means, the approach is from the inside, out. My approach is one of compassion, empathy, person-centered, genuine and to be upfront to find where you want to go, and how I may walk with you to get you there. You are treated with dignity and respect as a person, not as a diagnosis.

More Info About My Practice

My practice now has an official brick & mortar office for face to face, to go along with telehealth provisions.

My Role as a Therapist

To provide evidenced based (the science & practice) with biblically based (Spiritual foundation) services to assist those suffering from mental health, substance use and co-occurring disorders. The approach is one of empathy, compassion, with the understanding, it's not your fault, but it is your fight. The aim to empower those served with hope, healing and wisdom to overcome, to experience, liberty.We will always pray for you, and will ask for permission to pray, WITH YOU.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

Instead of the approach, "What's wrong with you", I would like to know, "What happened to you?". Understanding we all have a story; however, instead of making comparison to what others have done, how it impacted them, etc,. let's find out about you, and how it impacted and impacts, you, now. If it causes a problem, it IS a problem. What would you like to do about it? How would like to get there? And, how may I assist you in getting there?
