Kris Chudacoff


I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services from California State University, Fullerton, followed by earning a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Massachusetts Global. As an Associate Clinical Social Worker, I am privileged to collaborate with individuals confronting a range of mental health challenges.  My experience includes supporting individuals with adverse childhood experiences, trauma, homelessness, substance use, as well as persistent and severe mental illnesses. It is an honor to walk alongside those navigating mental health challenges, offering compassionate support throughout their journey.


Practice Philosophy

At the core of my practice philosophy is the commitment to personalized care, utilizing evidence-based modalities tailored to each individual’s unique needs. I believe in fostering a compassionate partnership between patient and clinician, grounded in empathy, understanding, and respect for their diverse experiences. By blending evidence-based and culturally sensitive practices, I aim to guide clients on their healing journey, nurturing emotional safety and empowerment. I integrate elements such as music, mindfulness, art, gentle movement, and somatic processing to support clients’ resilience and well-being, viewing their progress through a strengths-based, humanistic, and person-centered perspective.
