Message From Christopher M. Parada MA, LPC

Hello and thank you for investing the time to familiarize yourself with my psychotherapy practice. What I offer is a person-centered approach to care that is informed by 21 years of clinical experience in a vast array of treatment settings, delivered in an empathic, non-judgmental fashion. Our journey will begin with a comprehensive review of your developmental history, focusing specifically on current thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that impede the quality of your life, ambitions, and growth potential. I hope to provide an empathic, calm environment that facilitates your inward journey, unbinding the chains that anchor you to unhealthy patterns of feeling, behaving, and relating.

My theoretical and clinical approach to therapy is highly individualized, and especially applicable to the following conditions: depression, anxiety, OCD, trauma, grief, loss, and crisis management. I welcome the opportunity to discuss your specific needs in a free phone consultation as a first step on your journey. Where applicable, I will also make referrals to other specialists (for example, psychiatrist) whose collaboration will be critical to your treatment.
