Professional Information:

Chris is committed to and understands transformation processes - at the individual, family, group, organizational, and community levels. He has a strong foundation in the theoretical and practical elements of the change process, and tends to ground his work in trauma-focused, critical, and person-centered approaches. Relationship-building, authenticity, empathy, and explicitly anti-oppressive frameworks are at the core of his personal and professional identity, while a commitment to the values of social justice, dignity and worth of all people, service, integrity, and the centrality of human relationships frames his professional work. As a social worker, Chris finds himself most influenced by oppression-focused and decolonizing approaches to mental health and social work practice, which are grounded in the principles of narrative engagement, collective trauma assessment, culturally meaningful intervention planning, and transformation (individual, family, group, community, and society). Chris has extensive experience integrating advocacy and anti-racist strategies into his practice. His work has consistently demonstrated a strong commitment to dismantling the oppressive systems and barriers that moderate opportunities for transformation among vulnerable, marginalized, and oppressed communities in Michigan. Prior to working with Partners in Change, Chris worked as a faculty member in the Department of Social Work & Youth Services at Saginaw Valley State University    

Personal Information: 

Outside of work, Chris enjoys pursuing social justice, being super nerdy, and spending time with his wife and their three-footed wonderpup, Trinity.
