Chris Hancock, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Brentwood
If you're feeling overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, or just stuck in an unfulfilling pattern of living or loving, I can probably help. My approach is professional but laid back, conversational, exploratory, relational; real. Rigorous NYU training plus nearly 20 years experience on both ends of the therapist-client relationship has prepared me to respond effectively and compassionately to most any human struggle. I offer a FREE 30-40 MIN CONSULT. My office is on the DAVIDSON CO / OAK HILL edge of Maryland Farms, right off 1-65 & OHB.
I work with a variety of people on a wide range of issues. My background in music lends itself to approaching therapy as a co-creative process. And I believe walking the talk is essential. No therapist can safely take you where they have not gone themselves.
My practice is mainly adults and older adolescents in individual therapy and group formats. My work has broadened to include those in psycho-spiritual crisis or having potentially Spiritually Transformative Experiences (STE's). Please VISIT MY WEBSITE to learn about my approach and what others say about working with me.

Chris Hancock's Groups

Support for Extraordinary Experience (NOT a group)

Support for Extraordinary Experience (S.E.E.) is a sub-specialty offering a range of individualized consultation, therapeutic and exploratory services for people trying to discern, cope with, and integrate potentially Spiritually Transformative Experiences (pSTEs). STEs can come in many forms, such as (but not limited to) Near-Death Experience (NDE), Out of Body Experience (OBE), After Death Communications (ADC), Kundalini Arousal, or Spiritual Emergency. Such phenomena are often mislabeled and mistreated as mental illness (psychosis) by the mainstream religious and psychiatric community. If this sounds like something you're experiencing, see my website or contact me for more information.
