MORE ABOUT DR. CHAPLINE
I enjoy my work! I love the field of psychology. I truly care about helping people navigate their lives toward psychological wellness and to motivate and inspire them to reach their goals. I consider psychotherapy to be a valuable component of the walk of one's inner journey toward Self completion. As a psychotherapist, I prefer to use psycho-education with my clients so that they can understand the basis for the personal changes they experience. When clients operate from a more educated knowledge base, they can consciously choose positive, life affirming, emotionally-sound choices in the any of the major areas of their lives.
I began counseling in 1991 as an intern in a residential substance abuse
treatment facility. Throughout the years I've counseled in a hospital
setting, domestic violence treatment center, several residential treatment
settings (for adults, teenagers, and the chronically mentally ill) a family
counseling center, and an outpatient treatment center. I've counseled the
continuum of general human problems as well as those of the chronically
mentally ill. My experience and training includes counseling adults,
couples, families, children, adolescents, and the elderly for a broad
spectrum of human health-related problems. At the present, my counseling
work is dedicated to an Adult population, via telehealth only. I no longer maintain a physical location for in-person counseling.
