About me

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.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Charles Allen. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

fantastic support, and always so patient and understanding, had been helping em to navigate so many storms throughout the year. It had been very resourceful to learn from Charles a lot of skill set that I didn't know I even have.

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
