Meet Chris Rensch, MA, RCC
I practice therapy for kids and teens in Fort Langley, BC
I have a lifelong passion for helping kids overcome hardship—abuse, trauma, anxiety or just the daily stress that comes from living in a divided home.
I take a person-centered, humanistic approach as I help children and adults become the best version of themselves. My goal is to give new hope to kids (and to their parents) as I help them step into daily life with security, certainty, and joy.
I have a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology (MACP) and a BA (Hons) in Psychology with a minor in Sociology, and a Human Services Certificate from Trinity Western University. Much of my practice deals with trauma, and I have specialized training in two specific trauma therapies: Lifespan Integration and Observed and Experiential Integration.
I’m driven by a desire to see healing at every stage of life, to help people move forward in healthy, full relationships—no matter what happened in the past.
My Approach to Therapy
I work with children and adults who feel stuck—like they can’t move beyond the abuse or trauma they’ve experienced, even if it took place long ago.
My approach is not to treat symptoms from the top down, but to create lasting change from the bottom up. It’s a highly client-centered approach, rooted in my belief that we all have the inner ability to help ourselves.
For adults and older children this usually takes the form of talk therapy. For acute, intense memories and backgrounds I use specific trauma therapies. For children I use play and art in a mostly child-led approach.
These approaches help you or your child break out of unhelpful relationship patterns that undermine your inner strength, so you can move forward with healthy attachments and firm relationships.
