Welcome to Chiron's Cave Holistic Services
"Getting started on your counseling journey takes so much courage, and I honor how difficult it is to take that first step. I am so glad you are here. I believe that a good counselor is somebody who has gone through the process of counseling and dove into the depths of self exploration for themselves. As a client of counseling services, who became a counselor, I am aware of the importance of support, compassion, understanding, and unconditional positive regard from a therapist, and I strive to provide that to each of my clients for their individual and unique needs."
-Chris Lombardo, LPC, CADC, CEOLD (they/them/she/her)
Things to know about Chris and their Practice:
Chris proudly identifies as queer, neuro-divergent, and non-binary.
Chris is a clinician that is affirming of neuro-divergence. This means they will not try to "cure" or "fix" your Autism or ADHD. Instead, they will work with you to identify your strengths, support needs, resiliencies, creative capabilities, as well as work towards deconstructing the harmful messages you have gotten from a society that is built with neuro-typical people in mind. Chris affirms that you are not broken, or need "fixing". Chris is excited to get to know you, just as you are, and find ways to make your life more functional for YOU.
Chris is aware of the impact of racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and ableism on mental health, and ensures that the therapeutic space is conducive to unpacking these experiences.
Chris is currently serving as the 2022 President of the North West Association for Death and Bereavement Services, which is an organization they became involved with because of their passion for working with folks in the tender moments at the end of life.
