"Therapy? What? Me?" If you've ever thought or uttered those three words together, then you are at the right place in your life to seek a well-deserved change. I’m a person-centered counselor who aims to make it convenient for couples who struggle with life’s challenges to get help, anytime, anywhere. I’m a licensed clinical social worker in the great state of Wisconsin with over five years of experience working with client couples in situations where a good, healthy lifestyle involves paying attention not only to physical health, but also to habits, behaviors and emotions. My role as a couples counselor is to help you, to help me, to help yourselves. Initially, we'll want to be successful at targeting any problems that have come up in your relationship at this point, and the success in counseling lies solely within your grasp. My duty as a couples counselor is to NEVER assume that I have the answers for you. Your inherent resilience and resolve are going to be your most powerful allies once they are allowed to flourish. I applaud any couple for the effort and courage to seek out help, and I believe that an ethical, culturally attuned, collaborative counseling relationship with my client couples is at the foundation of what I can do for them.
Because your relationship and needs are unique, I will employ a counseling style and approach that will utilize a unique set of counseling techniques that I believe will best help you reach your goals. To do this, I’m going to spend time with you to get a snapshot of your lives; what’s working well and what’s not working so well. We’ll take that information and together we’ll come up with a set of recommendations that seem doable. The recommendations might be things you try on your own like reading some self-help material and practicing various kinds of skills on your own. Or, we may decide to continue our relationship further if we think we can develop some positive momentum on specific skills by doing so.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to help support and empower your union.
I look forward to working with both of you!

Carrington makes me feel confident in myself and he’s easy to talk to also he is helping me better than most of the other therapist I went to in the past.
We haven’t been working with Chatham long, but so far he has helped us with some very big hurdles in our relationship. We have a long distance relationship so it is refreshing and relieving to have a therapist who is willing to work with us and a place where that therapy can take place.
