We offer pre-marital counseling utilizing the SYMBIS assessment. Chris O'Rear enjoys working with a variety of clients with a variety of concerns. He particularly likes working with couples in crisis, but is not limited to only working with couples. Chris has great experience working with clergy and clergy families, but also enjoys working with clients of all faiths, people who have been hurt by their faith, and those with no faith tradition.

What do you love most about your job?
I particularly enjoy helping people who are overwhelmed or who have lost hope to discover hope. It is very rewarding to see a client through a therapeutic process to a new depth of understanding and joy in living.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I began my training at the Pastoral Counseling Centers of Tennessee (now known as Insight Counseling) and was there for almost 20 years. For about half of that time, I was in Executive Leadership of the organization. By the time I left, I was doing less counseling and more adminstrative duties. I missed my time focused on therapy and working with clients. I left that position in 2016 to return to my original calling and my original love - pastoral psychotherapy.
Why should our clients choose you?
I was trained as a hospital chaplain and a pastoral counselor. I have experience with more in-depth psychotherapy, but also have training in marriage & family therapy. I like looking for the deeper roots of presenting problems, but always want to focus on practical application of whatever insight is gained. Because I have my own experience being the client in a therapy relationship, I know what it is like to sit on the other side of the room and I work to make every client feel comfortable in my office. The issues clients bring are not always "comfortable" issues, but I try to help each client grow and develop into a fullness of living. I am a Licensed Clinical Pastoral Therapist in Tennessee and am a Diplomate in the American Association of Pastoral Couselors.
