I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and a certified Dialectical Behavior therapy clinician, who is dedicated and honored to work with clients, as they learn to cope with anxiety, depression, and other issues that may arise on this crazy journey we call “life”.

Christopher Lopez is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who believes in honoring and validating the inherent wisdom each individual carries along with them as they embark on a journey toward healing.

Chris’ experience spans a wide range of practice settings, while providing psychotherapy to individuals, families and groups. Areas of focus surround, but are not limited to, depression, anxiety, life/relationship transitions, trauma recovery, personality disorders, addictions, and LGBTQIA2s+ issues.

Chris pulls from a variety of evidence based treatment modalities such as Mindfulness, Brief Psychodynamic, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Hypnotherapy to help guide assessment and treatment. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to treatment, so Chris will collaborate and meet you where you are at to determine what the “best fit”, and course of action is to assist you on accomplishing your goals.

They are a certified Dialectical Behavior Therapist, and are currently undergoing certification in Heart Centered Hypnotherapy. Chris offers tele-therapy sessions only at this time.
