She is amazing, responds in a very nice manner, very fast. Listens and gives amazing feedback. I love a therapist that will listen and give you the most honest truth. And that’s exactly what she does…:)

I have had nothing but a positive experience. Provides me with a variety of worksheets to allow me to see that there are reasons for my depression. Explaining the reasons for the depression. The education that is provided with this process of revisiting traumatic experiences to help me with my depression. Providing a safe space to be open and honest about my past, and present. Helping me with my future, improving my outlook on becoming a better, happier person.

Charity has the patients of a Saint. She doesn't tell you what she thinks you should do. She guides you into the answer you already had in your head. She is very good at what she does.

So far she has been amazing. I haven’t gave her much to go on during our first few sessions and she has worked so well with me. She is easy to converse with and she explains why she says and does or what she thinks. Which is so reassuring on so many levels. She makes it easy when it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever tried in my life.

She’s awesome

Written by V.A. on Apr 09, 2022 after therapy with Charity for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

I’ve been through 3 or 4 other therapists with other companies just trying to be “heard” and Charity is the first one who cares about MY goals, not what someone else wants me to do. And she is relatable because she is a real person and shares certain things she has learned to deal with. The more I talk to her the more I want to schedule more time because she is the accountability person I’ve needed.
