MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPY

CHRISTOPHER GARCIA

Christopher is a Registered Marriage and Family Therapy intern with the State of Florida and received his Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Nova Southeastern University in 2014. After graduation, he focused his studies on Trauma and completed a 24-week Certified Expert Trauma Professional curriculum with the International Association of Trauma Professionals.

Chris’ expertise lies in understanding and enhancing relationships and the interactional cycles within these relationships as they affect client’s own unique lives and journeys. Chris is passionate in the study of trauma; as it relates to therapy, treatment and recovery for individuals, couples, families and communities who have experienced traumatic events, to help them facilitate the process of healing. Chris believes trauma is an important and often under looked aspect of addiction and recovery and has a unique view of trauma, believing it to play an adaptive role in people’s lives. Chris tries to empower clients into learning how to utilize their trauma and lived experiences to overcome addiction and as a means of personal transformation, rather than a diagnosis of symptoms and heartache. For Chris, Addiction is all about gaining control of who you are, multidimensionally; to treat ourselves physically, psychologically, spiritually, mentally and biologically. Addiction is about how you survived, but Recovery is about how you thrive; by focusing on overcoming how you have adapted based on your lived experiences and learning to reintegrate this new version of you…to become the best version of you.

Chris has presented in Cambodia, China and most recently Iceland where he mixes his love for teaching and educating other’s in trauma with his passion for travel, exploration and experiencing new cultures.
Chris has worked with individuals and families in the addiction and mental health field for over 3 years and appreciates each person’s unique story and path in life. He combines a holistic approach with therapeutic models to help clients facilitate change for themselves.
