My Approach to Helping

Christopher Lawver is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with over 18 years of
experience in private practice and community mental health settings. He is a graduate
of Antioch University Los Angeles with an M.A. in Clinical Psychology and the University of Southern California B.A. Communication Arts and Sciences.

Chris Lawver has practiced in West Hollywood and San Francisco California, specializing in substance use and addiction recovery, codependency and relationship evaluation, and self-empowerment in diverse populations.

In 2010, Lawver received a certification in Psychoanalysis from The Los Angeles Institute of
Psychoanalytic Studies in Brentwood campus, adding insight-orientated therapy to an impressive skill set.

Chris Lawver has worked at Charles Drew University of Medicine and Sciences, and at the
Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian community services, Jeffrey Goodman special care clinic with
HIVAIDS services and underserved communities of color and LGBTQ peoples.

In San Francisco, he worked with formerly incarcerated individuals to find their way forward
after being released and re-integrated into the community to find jobs and stability.

He has worked in community mental health settings, practicing CBT and DBT modalities
with severe mental illness and dual diagnosis. He’s expanded in recent years, to include
modern wisdom, energy work, and conscious raising approaches, and Kundalini yoga.

He has formulated a unique therapeutic approach with an eclectic interpersonal and interactive
style. He is warm, with a good heart and an empathic understanding. Drawing upon personal and professional experiences with grief, addiction, and adversity he empowers the client’s humanity, creativity, and achievements in society. Awareness, Insight, Action > Change
