Hi. My name is Christopher. Most people call me Chris and people who know me by my Tibetan name call me Lhakpa.
I’m married to Nancy my beautiful wife for what will be 26-years. We have two beautiful children; Marissa who is about to be 24 and Stephen, also known as Kujo who just turned 20.
We live in North Tonawanda, NY. “NT” as it’s known to its residents is a city of about 34K people. It’s a bedroom community tucked in between Niagara Falls and Buffalo. Nancy and I have lived in “NT” our entire lives. Trust me, that’s a blog post in and of itself. We also live here with our favorite dog “Jack.” Jack is a Cock-a-Poo, or at least that’s what we were told when we picked him out from a questionable country breeder. Oh well, we still love him.
I have been a professional social worker in NYS since 1985. Since that time I have had an opportunity to make proactive impact on the lives of thousands of individuals, couples and family’s. Social Work is my profession and my passion. I recently formalized my private therapy practice and opened the doors to Namaste Counseling & Wellness. and am working on a book about how we allow fear to lead us down a path of emotional difficulty.
Enjoy reading and thank you for reading.
Chris, Christopher, Lhakpa
