Christopher Whisnand, MA, LPC-S

Licensed Professional Counselor

Hi, I am Christopher Whisnand.

 

I grew up in north central Texas. I started my education and career path working toward being in the business world. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and started working in very diverse jobs. I have worked in retail, real estate and had my own construction company for about 8 years. I felt there was more I was supposed to do and returned to school and earned a Master’s of Art in Marriage and Family Counseling from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

For the past 10 years, I have been on the journey of meeting people, like myself, who have everyday challenges.  Together we build pathways toward a healthier and happier life.  I have worked in inpatient and outpatient settings, with adolescents and adults. I have had the privilege of managing several intensive programs, working with youth and their families individually and in groups.

 

My approach focuses on building a positive working relationship that is client led and collaborative. I hope to assist each client with finding their voice and making sure they feel heard.

 

I have experience working with:

 

  • Anger Management

  • Anxiety

  • Self-Esteem/Self-Worth

  • Grief and Loss

  • Mood disorders

  • Depression

  • Abuse/Trauma

 

I incorporate Mindfullness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and my counseling is built on a Biblical foundation.

 

I look forward to having the privilege of being able to work with you,

 

      Christopher
