Chris Meehan, M.A, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
As a Psychotherapist and Integrative Trauma Recovery Trained Specialist, I treat the whole person—body, mind, and soul. Life ebbs and flows, and at times, we can find ourselves in the rapids of despair and confusion. It’s easy to fall into the trap of defining ourselves by our struggles, which only leads us to forget our true story and diminish who we really are. As your counselor, I will help you clear the fog of dysfunction and doubt so the light of Christ can shine through you to illuminate your path and guide you to God’s purposes for your life.
Santa Monica – Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri & Sat
I have extensive experience treating clients with a wide variety of concerns, including treatment-resistant clients suffering from severe depression, anxiety, complex trauma, and substance abuse. I have a deep empathy for human suffering, and seek to offer warmth and relatability to each client. I work with teens and adult individuals, and find it very fulfilling to journey with my clients toward healing and transformation through the therapeutic process. I will listen intently to your story with the desire to authentically connect with you throughout the course of your treatment. No matter what you might be dealing with, I would be honored to help you find true restoration and hope.
My Goal as a Christian Counselor
One of my goals as your counselor is to help you become your authentic God given self—to develop and reveal the person you truly are and were meant to be. Through an individualized treatment plan, my aim is to help you find meaning in the midst of your challenges and ultimate relief from your pain. I will respectfully walk with you on your journey, offering proven therapeutic methods combined with comfort and hope from the Lord.
What I Offer in Christian Counseling
I offer a safe place where you can find peace, solve problems, and be challenged when necessary. My primary approach is to treat you as a whole person, not just the problem you’re currently facing. Through our sessions together, I provide space for your true, God-given identity to be discovered and revealed—an identity that is uniquely yours, and not defined by society or your family system. As your counselor, I offer unconditional permission for you to fully exist as yourself, and to delight in the way God designed you to be as His beloved child.
My Approach to Christian Counseling
In life, pain and suffering are inevitable. We have all been wounded in one way or another. At times, we all have our own cross to bear—but the story doesn’t end there. The resurrection is the other side of the same coin. The story doesn’t end on Good Friday. “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:5). As Christians, we have the healing power of Christ. Together we can illuminate the healing power of faith, hope, and love. My clinical experience integrated with faith will help heal and then reveal your full, authentic, unique, God-given identity.
