Returning home to Louisiana shortly after, Chris received his Masters in Social Work from LSU. During his time back home, Chris worked at LSU as a sports intern therapist. Chris was given the great opportunity to work closely with Olympic level and future professional athletes. In his practice, Chris utilizes Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Person-Centered therapy. Chris is also a member of the National Association of Social Workers and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker associate in the state of NC. He came to Ellie – Charlotte because of our values such as Authenticity, Humor, and, most of all, Compassion.

Chris really appreciates how Ellie takes care of their clinicians to make sure they are able to provide the best care possible to their clients and community.
