CHRIS FRANKLIN

THERAPIST

M.S., LMFT

Christopher has lived in Washington State since the early 1990’s and loves the Pacific Northwest. He earned his Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Seattle Pacific University in 2006 in Seattle, WA. He then moved to Northern Idaho and provided therapeutic treatment for adolescents struggling with behavioral and mental health issues for 4 years. He returned to Washington State in 2010 and has been working with many mental health issues in private practice since then.

In Christopher’s own words:

“I have specialized in helping individuals overcome shame and improve self-worth, which lies at the root of many mental health symptoms. I help clients to learn to access and express emotions in ways that don’t create internal struggles. I have also helped hundreds of couples resolve conflicts, improve intimacy and learn to solve problems in ways that are helpful to the relationship.

I also have extensive experience helping clients heal trauma, overcome addictions of all types, overcome codependent tendencies and learn to find life-fulfilling passions.

My overarching goal is to help you get in touch with self-worth to such a degree that you find the internal solutions waiting for you in the problems you deal with. Therapy is about helping you to achieve fulfilling results and not about pursuing my agenda. I will be your non-judgmental advocate and help you to see things within that you may have not noticed before. I will also provide guidance, advice, and solutions that resonate for you.

I am married and have 3 children and 2 dogs. I love art, I love making things, I love inspiring people and I love being in the outdoors with my family.

Should we work together, I look forward to meeting you and helping you find the best of what you are looking for in counseling.”
