Chris Bartkowiak Practice Description
I create a safe, nonjudgemental, confidential, zen type environment. My speciality is assisting you in finding your true reality by stepping out of your story and viewing it with curiosity and non judgement and then you can make true choices that allow you to process through the pain that has been stored up causing anxiety/anger. I am a divorced parent of adult twins, and have over 25 years of experience as a counselor / life coach with a wide range of life and work experience ranging from military, law enforcement and sales experience, coupled with a solid educational background. In September of 2015 I had a pulmonary embolism coupled with A-fib which caused me to spend 7 days in intensive care. That experience allowed me to reevaluate my life. Within the last couple of years I have experienced personal loss of my brother , my business partner since 1998 and several close friends along with a very painful divorce. Through all that I learned to have meaning and purpose in my life and am exploring the wonder of the micro and macro of nature. It was not an easy road . I believe I am an excellent therapist and now more then ever I enjoy working with clients and assisting them in finding reality , meaning , purpose and wonder in this crazy world.
