Christopher Shea, MA, CAC-AD, CRAT, LCC, Drug & Alcohol Counselor in Leonardtown
*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* Feeling depressed, anxious, unsure how to cope with recent life changes? Are you struggling with addiction? If these, or other issues, are of concern, counseling is for you. My approach to counseling is to be a guide, working with you to identify thoughts and behaviors which are healthy and unhealthy for daily living. I guide people who are suffering from daily hardships, stress, anxiety, lack of direction or goals in life, addictions, relationship issues, and simply life in general. I offer either in office or flexible and economical ONLINE sessions. Book a session:
Are you in need of life goals or path toward the future? Maybe life isn't the way you expected so aren't sure how to cope. If so, life coaching is for you! Life coaching involves guiding people to identify and realize their goals while breaking through the barriers.
I'm also trained in pastoral care, spirituality, and life coaching, using these disciplines in a holistic approach, enhanced with cognitive-behavioral therapy. I'm also a professor at Towson University and McDaniel College. I speak nationally at professional conferences and seminars.
