Chris Goetz, LPC
As a trauma specialist, I understand the deep pain and scars that can result from experiences of severe trauma and emotional abuse. I am committed to helping individuals heal from these wounds and find a path towards a more fulfilling life. My approach to therapy is grounded in empathy, compassion, and understanding. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, and I strive to meet each client where they are at and adjust my approach to meet their unique and individual needs.
Revel the Root, Expose the Lie, and Heal the Wounded Spirit
It is my passion to work with those who struggle with severe trauma and emotional abuse. Based on the comfort level of the patient, faith, spirituality, and prayer can often be a vital part of the therapeutic process. I strive to meet the unique and individual needs of each client and adjust my approach accordingly.
Having survived a traumatic experience of my own, I learned through my training, a way to bring up the semi-conscious and unconscious resulting in a much needed and more thorough inner healing, over and beyond counseling by itself. I continue to utilize this practice to this day.
Chris' Therapy Method
My initial training as a therapist was in premarital and marriage counseling, a vital part of my practice that I continue to enjoy to this day. I have approximately 20 years of experience and am licensed as a counselor and supervisor of interns. In addition to counseling couples and trauma survivors, I also work with persons coming out of the sex industry. I have experience working with major depressive disorders, bipolar I & II, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorders, and personality disorders. I am well-versed and extremely comfortable working with people of different cultures. I utilize a trauma-informed, person-centered, psychodynamic approach in therapy and often incorporate CBT, DBT and mindfulness techniques. I am a certified revisioning practitioner, a technique that simulates re-attachment for grief resolution and ego-integration. My certification through the FBI National Academy in resiliency allows me to train local police departments throughout the Metroplex in critical incident and mental health orientation trainings.
I am an avid runner and enjoy traveling. I have served on the teams of two international inner healing/counseling ministries that travel across the world. I was a Hospice Chaplain for 3 years.
