Licensed Professional Counselor | MA, LPC
My name is Chris Andersen, and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the northwest Phoenix area. My primary passion and focus is assisting men in pursuing purity and overcoming sexual addictions and compulsive sexualized behaviors (such as pornography addiction, masturbation, lustful thinking and fantasizing, etc). I also have extensive experience working with couples on recovery from affairs and infidelity. My desire is to help men not only clean up the “outside of the cup” (their behaviors), but more importantly, to be truly clean and pure on the inside (the mind and heart). My definition of purity is desiring to have the “eyes, mind, and heart of Jesus” in all things, including all aspects of our sexual lives.
In addition to purity issues, I also assist couples in recovery from affairs/infidelity, and I enjoy working with couples, pastors and ministry leaders.
At NWCC, our motto is “dealing with life’s challenges in positive, healthy, and God-honoring ways.” As a Christian counselor, I want to make sure that all the counsel and feedback that is provided to clients is aligned with Biblical truth and teaching. I believe, both personally and professionally, that being an active follower of Christ is the best “starting point” for creating change and addressing whatever issues or challenges we face.
I did not grow up in a church family or Christian home, but I first discovered Jesus by attending a Christian school (from K-8th grade). I invited Christ into my heart at a young age, but looking back, in my younger years I was more of a “believer” than a true “follower.” I wandered in my faith during my high school and college years, but, like the Prodigal Son in Scripture, I knew how to find my way back to the loving Father that was waiting for me to return. I recommitted myself to Christ in my mid-20’s, began growing in my faith, and, for me, “the rest is history!”
