Christopher Welch, LMFT
Marriage and Family Therapist
I focus on forming a safe and honest relationship with clients. I approach clients with curiosity. I seek to help clients return to themselves and their bodies and begin to trust the profound intuitive wisdom of their bodies. I seek to help clients approach themselves from an understanding and compassionate orientation. I seek to help clients see the coherence in our adaptations and ways of coping. I seek to help clients reconnect and reintegrate their mind, body, soul and live in empowered, authentic, loving connection with themselves and others.
My journey towards becoming a therapist has been a wild trip. Therapy is a second career for me as I have been practicing as a pharmacist for over 11 years. Unbeknownst to me at the time, the seed for a future as a therapist was planted when I had a transformational experience in my own therapy. I remember how powerful it was when my therapist witnessed and validated my story. Through a confluence of many things, I came to realize that my heart was not in the pharmacy profession. I remember the day when my wife asked me the question, “If you could do anything else, what would you do?” I was surprised to hear myself say, “maybe counseling?” Little did I realize that after much time and effort this would come to pass. Just as my story was witnessed, I am passionate about witnessing your story and walking alongside you through the difficult, painful, happy, and joyful times. When I am not working with clients, I am enjoying time with my wife and two children, getting out into nature, eating good food, and reading poetry.
