Christopher is currently completing his masters in mental health counseling at the University of Vermont where, in addition to counseling undergraduates, he has enjoyed his roles as a graduate teaching assistant, a workshop facilitator, and an international student mentor.

Dedicated to supporting college students in their emotional and academic growth, Christopher brings sensitivity to diversity and multicultural issues and a commitment to social justice. He invites students to engage in a process that affirms the uniqueness and complexity of identity and life experience, builds on strengths and insight, and ultimately stretches individuals to become more fully who they are.

Originally from New England, Christopher has a BA from Hampshire College and an MFA from Goddard College. Both feminist and queer theories inform his perspective, as well as an emerging interest in family systems. The parent of two adolescents, he serves on the board of Outright Vermont, a state-wide organization supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth, and has presented and led workshops on gender identity.
