When you are struggling, I want you to know that you are not alone. Whatever you are facing – depression, anxiety, pain from a breakup, grief from a loss – I am here to support you. I have worked as a licensed psychotherapist for more than nine years, and in that time, I have helped people move past their struggles and couples rediscover joy in their relationships. You do not need to go on feeling lost and alone; I believe that healing requires a collaborative effort: so let me show you just what I can do for you: together. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Therapist trained to treat individuals with PTSD, Veterans, childhood trauma, complex trauma/adults with trauma, grief, addiction, anxiety, and depression. I work with individuals and groups of all ages and from all backgrounds, stretching my skills and my knowledge for you. I understand how difficult it can seem to manage your life when it feels like you have become isolated, and I am here to tell you that you do not need to go on living in pain. I vow to meet you where you are with; identify the root of the issues while empowering you to find healing and encounter compassion.

Very grateful to have Charisma as my first counselor. She has 100% attention on every second in all sessions. She listens actively, helped me, and challenged me through my thinking. I feel very very safe and comfortable sharing everything with her. More important than her professional service, she got a big loving heart for people. Really enjoyed the wonderful time with her.
Charisma has been an enormous help to me. I would not want anyone else as my counselor unless she was no longer working with Better Help. I feel she understands me, she listens not only to what I say, she also listens to what I don't say. She is wonderful!
I enjoyed working with Charisma. She will challenge you and guide you through doing the work to heal and move forward. She is great.
She is the best therapist I have matched with on this app. Her energy is so wonderful. She actively listens and is incredibly supportive!
The VERY first session I felt a weight lifted. Charisma pushes you to get to the root and then empowers you! I immediately felt safe and comfortable with her to speak my truth. I am so very grateful to her and now I look forward to our next sessions as I am on my way to breaking these chains!!
She is a great listener and seems very focused on helping me.
Charisma has quickly assessed the struggles I’ve been battling alone for too long. She is kind and compassionate but also honest. Her expertise has helped me be accountable to my own goals for participating in therapy. I hope to continue my journey with her as one of the key supports along the way.
She’s a great person to come to, if you need someone to build you up she’s the one.
Charisma is very great at picking up on hidden/suppressed feelings. She often knows me better than myself and is really comforting and easy to talk to. As a POC, I really appreciate that I can connect to her too on a socio-cultural level.
Responsive, professional, supportive
Just started working with Charisma but from the first session she was open and honest with me
I truly love meeting with Charisma. She’s empathetic, and is always willing to help me through my situations that we talk about. I also love the fact that we share cultural similarities I feel like that’s super important. I would definitely recommend her 100 times over
