For over 15 years I have been helping others heal, grow, connect to themselves and evolve their consciousness and or spirituality. I use any number of a multitude of modalities including therapeutic counseling, energywork such as Reiki and shamanic work. I have an uncanny intuition and an acutely high perception that allows me to see behavior and energy patterns (patterns sourced from family of origin, culture, or inherent to the person's soul) and to know what to bring into the work that will assist my clients to improve, transition, and transform.
I help my clients see their patterns, develop their own abilities and teach tools helpful specifically to their dynamic. I include trans-personal psychology, spirituality, mysticism and leading edge information in nutrition, fitness, in my work.

Comments from clients:

"In my time working with Chriss, I have been continually amazed at his remarkable ability to sense energy and respond to my specific needs as a healer. His awareness works on many levels . He has a huge heart. He is able to penetrate the sufferings and roles imposed by culture and conditioning. Chriss's work is powerful on a personal level and has had an enormous impact on me. I am eternally grateful to have found him at this time in my life."

"When I met Chriss, I was in a dead end job, in a deep depression and very blocked. I felt my life would not ever be able to change. Now, I feel very powerful. I have not been depressed for over a year. Chriss helped me develop abilities unique to me and very rare. Now I have found that I am able to help others. My life is happy and fulfilling. I am very thankful for our work together."

“Working with Chriss is like having an exceptionally skilled and capable mirror in my life advocating for me. I felt held in compassion and safe within to share myself because of the safe space he held for me to be heard. Experiencing his energy medicine was like the sensation of being enveloped back inside the womb and I felt I could see, feel and experience being in an experience of Divine Love. He is the most powerful mirror I have had of what true unconditional love really is and through him, I learned to really love and respect myself and hold compassion for who I am, instead of living in shame, regret and judgment of myself. I am able to really understand and know myself and frame my “story” in a light of the beautiful being that I AM because Chriss helped me to realize and live my truth. Chriss is a true healer, compassionate heart, and friend on my journey through life.”
