About Me

If you are struggling with life issues and/or grief you do not have to struggle alone. I offer hope, help, care, and support.

Hi, I’m Char and I genuinely love people and enjoy helping individuals like you on their life journey to become mentally whole and healthy, as well as, offer support to those striving to utilize their gifts, talents, and discover their dreams.

My theoretical orientation is an eclectic approach to Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing, Solution-Focused, and Holistic approach. My own life experience gives me a unique and seasoned perspective. Both of my children have other mothers, so I understand the unique challenges having a blended family can bring. I retired from the City of Orlando and completed my degree while working full time and raising a family to pursue my passion of helping people on their life journey. I have also supported an end of life care for a professional counselor and I am a 2x cancer survivor.

I have experience in helping individuals in the areas of ADHD, Anger Management, Anxiety, Behavioral Issues, Career, Depression, Emotional Issues, Grief, Life and Health Issues/Transition, Sexual Abuse, and Substance Abuse/Addiction.

Remember, if you are struggling with life issues you do not have to struggle alone. I am here to provide hope, help, care, and support, as well as, appropriate coping strategies to help you meet your needs. I look forward to offering support to you as you make positive changes to enhance your life journey. Please feel free to contact me today.

Char is great; compassionate and caring and at the same time practical, with an holistic approach to well -being.

I started counselling with Char to address symptoms of depression/anxiety during lockdown and I can't recommend her highly enough. She's been an incredible help to me and now I feel capable to manage my emotions better and be more self-sufficient when things go wrong. Counseling was quite a daunting prospect for me but she put me at ease and over the weeks we built a good comfortable relationship. Many thanks to her for all the help!

Char helped work through a lot of things that I hadn't properly dealt with in a calm and methodical manner. She was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed our sessions.

Char is really helping me face my demons and work through my troubles in a structured and productive manner. I feel comfortable talking about everything that concerns me and get fantastic insight, advice and guidance on how to make changes for the better. I feel a real improvement and am excited about where I am going

Char has been a very good help for me. She redirected my thoughts to focus more on the positive side of my situation (which I am finding hard to do). She makes me understand my feelings and my thoughts for me to realize the root causes of it and for me to address what really is the problem instead of dealing with my unexplained emotions and thoughts. I have less panic attacks now and find courage again to face my everyday life. I am truly grateful of Char's insights, ways and methods. Without those i won't be able to find better ways to deal with myself. I am glad and thankful i came across with her. She help me in ways that i thought i don't need and i thought that i would never find with someone else. I am grateful to her and to betterhelp.

Mrs. Char has been a huge help in my mental health journey. She understands my concerns and provides ways to overcome my problems. She has a kind and helpful attitude and I would recommend her to anyone. :)

Written by S.H. on Aug 05, 2018 after counseling with Char for 2 months on issues concerning relationship, and intimacy-related

Char is an excellent counselor and was really intuitive about the root of my stress and anxiety! Her advice helped me navigate through some tough times and helped me understand how to deal with similar situations in the future. She helped me a lot with my relationship with my boyfriend and my parents. She was very respectful and tried to understand my cultural values. I am really grateful to her and would highly recommend her!

I came to BetterHelp for mainly my relationship problem, but I also had self-esteem, self-identity, and trauma issues. BetterHelp assigned me to Char. Char was very kind and generous to offer the help I desperately needed. She listened to me carefully with patience and understood my issues right away. I felt very comfortable talking with her. She helped me feel so much better about myself. I totally recommend Char.
