Chris Peckham, LCPC

Chris Peckham, LCPC has a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Clemson University, and is a licensed clinical professional counselor in Maryland. He began working in wilderness therapy in 2006 when he joined the Aspen Education Group and began working as an instructor with Four Circles, a program for young adults in the Ashville, NC area. Most recently he provided family, group and individual therapy at a small therapeutic boarding school, the Cherokee Creek Boys’ School. He has thru-hiked (that means he hiked the entirety of–) both the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail. When he’s not at Potomac Pathways, Chris can often be found hiking with his wife, his two youngsters, and a couple of dogs. Chris says, “Outdoor experience has the power to heal and enrich lives. With a little guidance, it can serve as a catalyst for change and the backdrop for extraordinary learning. I came to Potomac Pathways because I enjoy being a part of that change.”
