Psychotherapist, Spiritual Counselor, & Couple's Counselor
Welcome to Chris Engler Counseling! I'm happy you're here. I appreciate your visit and hope to provide you with a clear picture of the services I provide for individual and couple's/relationship counseling. Finding a trusted therapist you're aligned with is the first step to successful treatment. I invite you to take this first step with curiosity by exploring my story, approach, and philosophy on mental health wellness; while also, trusting yourself to decide if you'd like to take the next step for scheduling a free 20 minute consultation for further inquiry,
You (and yours) can schedule consultations and therapy appointments by visiting the Scheduling & Rates page. In addition, you can also find my contact information at the bottom of the home page.
I look forward to hearing from you and wish you well on this journey of mystery, healing, and exploration of self and relationship.
