Utilizing empathy and a sound knowledge base to assist others in their recovery.
Hi, my name is Christopher Sheets and I have had the pleasure of working in the field of mental health for 20 years in varying capacities. This includes memory care, acute psychiatric inpatient hospital units, and outpatient medication management settings. In addition, I have two years of experience providing Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy in a consultative role. I prefer to utilize a combination of natural remedies, pharmaceutical medications, and brief psychotherapeutic interventions depending upon the client's preference. Outside of the clinic I enjoy hot yoga, weight lifting, outdoor activities, food tours, and of course traveling to learn more about the world we share. I was born in sunny Southern California and moved to the beautiful Pacific Northwest as a teen, where I have resided since. My formative years were spent amongst a diverse population of people, influencing my perspective and approach to life and later aiding in my ability to relate to those I serve.

I believe in utilizing medication management, adjunctive therapy, and spiritual awareness to support a robust approach to mental wellness.
The majority of my practice revolves around typical pharmaceutical medications. I use an evidence-based approach and always offer several options for treatment according to your preferences.
Utilizing aspects of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in combination with motivational interviewing and medication management to help you gain insight into circumstances and identify healthy thought patterns/skills practices to mitigate stressful situations.
The word spiritual does not necessarily mean religious, though for some it can. It encompasses our beliefs and the way we interact with each other and with ourselves. I will help you develop a more regular meditative practice with a focus on mindfulness based stress reduction in addition to recognizing how thoughts can influence our emotions.
