Chris Paige, LCSW

 Chris Paige, LCSW has been a licensed therapist for over 20 years. He received his Bachelor’s of Arts from Southern Methodist University in 1988 and completed his Master’s of Social Work from Barry University in 1993. He has practiced in a variety of settings including hospitals, schools, and foster homes and has taught at the undergraduate and graduate level. He has presented papers at national and international conferences and appeared on Dateline NBC for his work with children of divorce. He has been in private practice since 1998 and provides trauma resolution coaching to clients across the nation. Mr. Paige therapeutic philosophy is that normal response to trauma are often treated as disorders. He feels that the lack of understanding in the mental health system of the effects of trauma leads to inappropriate stigmatizing diagnoses and, subsequently, the overuse of psychiatric medication. Mr. Paige successfully utilizes a combination of trauma informed techniques including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) in his patients. He believes that effective psychotherapy can significantly reduce an individual’s reliance on anxiety medications like benzodiazepines, as well as many other drugs, and dramatically improve mental and physical health.
