Dr. Christopher Nahumck
My journey to becoming a clinical psychologist has been thorough. I started my education in Chicago, attending Loyola of Chicago’s School of Social Work and Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary where I earned a Masters in Social Work and a Masters in Divinity. I then studied clinical psychology at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California, earning a PhD. This extensive experience has allowed me to provide psychotherapy with a diverse group of clients from different backgrounds, stages of life, and upbringings.
Over the last 12 years of doing therapy my belief is that healing and wholeness happen when patients are understood and given a place to reveal their deep selves to another without judgment or shame. I work with adults, adolescents, and couples to work through depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, and phase of life concerns. The hope of therapy is rewarded in the initial relief that comes as symptoms improve and connections are made. My desire is to work together to connect with your deeply felt authentic self and claim an abundant and vibrant life.
Therapy might be a good fit for you if you experience:
- A desire to live a fuller, more meaningful life.
- Feelings of sadness or helplessness to change your circumstances.
- Crippling anxiety that prevents you from feeling accomplished.
- Feelings of disconnection from others.
- Major life or career transitions.
- Feeling that you are standing still while life passes you by.
- Excessive worry about work and feelings of inadequacy.
- Frequent anxiety about avoiding situations which remind you of your loss and grief.
- Trouble making sense of your life experiences and how you got to where you are.
A place to be heard and known
Therapy is a place to rediscover and reconnect to yourself, or to uncover truths that have been elusive and hidden from your view. This happens by being heard and seen and deeply known. Sessions are weekly for 50 minutes in order to build momentum and progress that can be seen and reviewed at regular intervals. Sessions can be increased when times become difficult or intense and extra support is needed.
A life abundant and authentic
If you feel like things are preventing you from claiming the life you want, therapy can help you thrive. When you are deeply known it allows you to connect to yourself and others in a deeply authentic, abundant way that brings your best self to the surface and makes life not only manageable but wonderful.
