Christopher L. Huvos, PsyD

Each of us responds to life’s problems in ways that often reflect our unique histories and cultural backgrounds. When our response becomes one of the problems, a psychologist may help us gain fresh insight into the situation and seek new approaches. My clinical training prepared me to address the full range of human emotional problems, from self-defeating behaviors to serious mental illness. From 1985 to 2009 I worked at a psychiatric hospital and in private practice. I am now in private practice full-time.

I take an active role in therapy and try to engage clients at their most personal levels. I attempt to open up new possibilities through focused questions and interpretive comments. I help clients develop new emotional and cognitive skills with which to take charge of their lives.
