Christopher Butler, LMHC

I am a counselor with over 20 years of experience and a military veteran who has worked with adolescents and adults, couples and families struggling with addictions, mood disorders, trauma issues, and marital and family discord. I am experienced in providing many evidence-based approaches to include CBT, EMDR, and Cognitive Processing Therapy.

I understand how hard it can be to reach out to others for help (especially sometimes for men).  Deciding to begin therapy is the first step toward healing. I want to work with that momentum, and provide you with a safe space to process, rest, and find renewed strength to tackle life’s challenges. I believe change is multi-faceted and it is my goal to see you thrive emotionally, relationally, mentally, and spiritually.

It is my joy to be able to walk with couples through some of their darkest times, helping them to find transparency, intimacy, better communication, and emotional healing in their marriage. My passion lies specifically in helping those that are recovering from betrayal trauma as well as working with spouses of sexual addiction. I truly believe for you, that what has been broken can be made new.

Working together through whatever you and your family are facing in a supportive, respectful, and collaborative manner is how I approach every individual and their goals for treatment. I am an expert in many areas, but you are the expert on you. I want to work with and use your strengths and resources to find a path forward through obstacles and difficulties. Together, we will work to discover ways to experience a more satisfying life and better relationships. Whatever you are facing, you don’t have to do it alone.

I received a Master’s degree in Counseling from Regent University in 2000.
