Chris Brearly, LGPC, MA

Chris Brearly

Chris has always had a deep desire to see others flourish and to care for those who are hurting. In the counseling room, Chris naturally provides space for the unburdening of the heart and mind, offering insight and hope for life's circumstances and movement forward. He trusts the Holy Spirit in guiding each person's process and learning to rest in faith through whatever life may bring. Chris knows that therapy can be daunting at times, but that it can also be a place of re-connecting, finding meaning, and forging lasting change. He has a passion for engaging in this transformational process and witnessing others heal and thrive.

Chris received his M.A. in Counseling from the Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, FL. There he conducted therapy in an outpatient clinic and facilitated groups through local churches and community organizations. Chris also has experience providing counseling support to those in crisis, having worked as a counselor in a residential psychiatric crisis facility. His therapy focus includes cases of depression, suicidal ideation, various forms of abuse, anxiety, career decisions, men's issues, life adjustments, relational issues, and couples counseling.

Chris initially studied civil engineering in college, but eventually decided to take a turn and work with the campus ministry, Reformed University Fellowship, at Clemson University. After his time there, he made his way into the field of counseling, finding a congruence of personal gifts and passion that has guided him since. Outside of the counseling room, Chris enjoys creating things with his hands and traveling the US, visiting family, friends, and national parks.
