I'm Chris Peckham. I've been working with teens and young adults for over 17 years in a variety of settings including summer camps, wilderness therapy, therapeutic boarding schools and intensive outpatient programs.
My true passion in my clinical work is helping older adolescents and young adults make a successful transition to independence. I bring a strength-based approach to my clients with training in cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and solution-focused therapy. I help clients reconsider themselves and their value, empowering them to develop self-efficacy, motivation and self-confidence.
Some say my rare talent is reaching those "hard-to-reach" youths to help them build confidence and competence so that they can move ahead in their lives in a constructive way.
