For more than 27 years, Christopher has helped patients with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, life transitions, grief/loss, pet bereavement, men’s issues and relationship problems. He especially works with those who are looking to resolve childhood issues that may have lingering effects in current adult relationships and even impact success at work. He usually works with both sets of concerns at the same time, leading to new skill-sets and improved quality of life.
Depression often involves loneliness. With many male clients, Christopher focuses on breaking down barriers–often through relationships with animal companions–to reduce that sense of isolation. He has written extensively about men’s psychology and the importance of companion animals, most recently in his book “When Man Meets Dog” (Hubble & Hattie, 2016). His newest book is “Clinician’s Guide to Treating Companion Animal Issues: Addressing Human-Animal Interaction,” co-edited with Lori Kogan (Academic Press/Elsevier, 2019).
