Chad Pfeiffer, LPCC

“Life is a journey. Our natural instincts help us to survive. Through this journey, we experience both pain and happiness. We continue to grow, in our mission to live a complete life.”

Health and wellness is achieved through a state of balance; between thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Therapy is an essential component of holistic healing. Through the use of honest and respectful guidance, I find great honor in helping others.

The complexity of life can be challenging, yet also very intriguing. I aim to provide continuous empathy, care and insight for my relatives (clients). Along with the use of Western therapeutic modalities, I also draw upon cultural strength based knowledge to serve clients from historically marginalized communities.

Specialty Areas:

I have experience working with young adults, adults and elders. I have served clients in schools, within outpatient clinic, and clients who are and have been adjudicated. I have provided therapy for clients who experience concerns related to depression, anxiety, trauma (PTSD), personality disorders (Bipolar, Borderline, Schizoaffective, etc.), substance use, family conflict.
