Counseling & Life Coaching
Sometimes you need a coach to give you perspective. Life coaching is a practice that involves guiding people away from anxiety and stress and moving them to identify and realize their goals, dreams, and aspirations while breaking through personal barriers. By becoming self-aware you are free to develop your talents and potential.
Chris is actively involved in national and state policy making and implementation and has led the growth and expansion of facilities, as well as the creation and running of the only inpatient substance abuse treatment facility in Baltimore County. He is uniquely qualified with the insights necessary to assist your company or agency.
