Charles Allen, LPC
Thank you for stopping by and taking time to learn a little more about me!
I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor who is in private practice in Georgia. After spending 40 years in church music ministry, I resigned from full-time ministry and returned to college to earn my master's degree in Psychology. After graduating from Argosy University in 1995, I worked in Public Mental Health for 15 years, and in 2010 left that venue and opened my solo private practice where I continue to work today.
My primary area of interest is working with couples who plan to be married, or with couples who need help restoring their marriage to a healthy status. I am a Level 3 Gottman Therapist. I believe in traditional marriage. I am blessed to have been married to my wife since 1965. We know what it's like to have marriage problems and to work through those problems. I believe there is no problem so great that it cannot be conquered if there is just a little bit of "one more try" left in both of you. I am also a Court Approved Counselor who works with individuals who have been court ordered for anger management counseling. I also work with individuals who are not court mandated but who want to work on their anger issues.
I look forward to speaking with you about your specific needs.

I’ve had two sessions with Charles. He is a good listener and seems to care. My main concern is I feel I need some guidance from him. I need more than listening. Hope that will come more in future sessions

Charles has indeed been the professional clinician, wise and gentle councillor and the mentor figure that I believe I've been missing for so many years. Underscored with sound Christian principles makes me leave our sessions thoroughly thought provoked and enlightened that I have no choice but to go away to think and research. And I'm just getting started
Thank you Charles
