Chris Paredes, M.A., LMHCA

Psychotherapist / Emotionally Focused Couples Counselor


When your relationships suffer, your entire can feel like a struggle. At times it can seem that even though you desire rewarding and fulfilling relationships, countless obstacles prevent this from happening. We can all find ourselves stuck in this place at times, unable to change personal situations or navigate difficulties in relationships. Change can begin by talking with a supportive therapist, and I work with both couples and adult men and women seeking change, support, and growth in their personal lives.

I provide evidence based care using Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help couples connect rather than continue in a cycle of unresolvable conflict. I am currently working towards certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy, and I have also completed training in Gottman Method Therapy through level 3. In addition to working with couples, I work with individuals to help navigate depression, anxiety, grief, loss, life transitions, and the impacts of substance addiction.

I provide a complimentary twenty minute phone consultation to prospective clients, and would be happy to schedule a time to discuss your hopes for meeting with a therapist and to answer any questions you may have.
