Hello, my name is Chris Coleman, and I am the owner and Clinical Supervisor of Liberation Counseling & Consultation, LLC, licensed in The Commonwealth of Virginia. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Substance Abuse Treatment provider, Certified Substance Abuse Counselor, Master Addiction Counselor through NAADAC, a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, National Certified Counselor through NBCC, and a Substance Abuse Provider with Department of Transportation. I have Master's degrees in Addiction Counseling and professional Counseling through Grand Canyon University, and I also have attended and completed a degree in Biblical Studies.
My primary theoretical approaches are Cognitive Behavioral, Reality (Choice), Motivational Interviewing (Enhancement), Solution Focused. I am also certified through PREPARE/ENRICH working with families or couples. I utilize the evidenced based approaches from the scientific training, yet, my base and strength of therapy, come from a faith and biblically based model, which means, the approach is from the inside out. I will never push my faith and convictions upon anyone, nor do I shy away from who I am and to Whom I belong and live for.
I will always pray for you; however, I will ask for your permission to pray, with you. John 10:10 provides a clear understanding of what I do, and why: "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus the Christ) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." Our vision in Liberation Counseling & Consultation is, to proclaim liberty, to the captive", with the spiritual understanding that substance use, co-occurring and mental health disorders take people's live captive, and that is not what the plan of God is for you. I thank you for the opportunity to work and walk with you, assisting you on your walk out of captivity and bondage, into a life of joy, peace, healing and deliverance. Amen!

Chris has immediately met me where I am at and speaking to the truth of who I am in Christ. He is unwavering in his insistence that I am justified before God and encourages me to shed my sinful fleshly desires. He ministers to me and listens just as well. I only wish I had more time to really grind away at certain points in our conversations, no fault of his, I’m just a little more long winded than a half an hour session can contain. My time with Chris is well spent however, and I can see the direction he is taking me leading to truth found in Jesus Christ alone.
