Welcome to the website for Christopher Chiochios, licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) and board certified art therapist (ATR-BC).   I provide a wide range of counseling and therapy services to best meet your current needs.  I have worked extensively with children and teens, parents, and families over the past 15 years, and have treated a variety of concerns, issues, needs, and struggles.   Pertinent areas of expertise include attachment and relationship concerns, family discord, aggression, anxiety, depression, impulsivity and attentional difficulties, social relatedness or isolation, behavioral, social, emotional, academic, and other school-related difficulties, and the impact and treatment of trauma and abuse.

Life presents a multitude of challenges and opportunities for us to wrestle with, embrace, resolve, and overcome.  This is an inherent part of living.  As we make progress and move forward, achieve, we also find new challenges and roadblocks.  Yet, for some children and teens and their families, these are not always easily dealt with, mastered, or overcome.   The course of life, of developing and growing, of the many transitions that take place from birth to starting school,  moving into adolescence and on to adulthood, to becoming parents and having children, all require us to make adjustments, master new skills, and take on new roles and responsibilities.  My hope is to help you, your child, your teen, or your family to better navigate and relate with the current struggles, issues, or hardships that are leading you to seek additional resources and support for you and your family.   My experiences have led me through working with children and teens in foster care, with parents, guardians, and caregivers, in residential care, within school systems and out in the community, and in a day treatment school program.   I have assisted these children, teens, and families in finding solutions to their struggles, identify new skills and strengths to better cope with their difficulties, see new perspectives and understanding of their current situations and relationships, and better ways of relating with each other, themselves, and their world. 

I encourage you to explore my site further to learn about me and my background, my approach with therapy, and the services that I offer, which include therapy and counseling for children, adolescents, parents, adults, and families.  Contact me to set up an initial meeting or inquire with specific questions or concerns you may have.  I look forward to assisting you further.
