Charlie has been very helpful in my navigation of how traumatic events in my past have affected my ability to form connections in the queer community. Charlie has been a great listener who offers wonderful advice. I am so grateful to have started this therapeutic connection.

Charlie has made me feel extremely comfortable with therapy. I haven’t had the greatest experience with therapy in the past, but I feel very safe with him and he definitely has the experience to back it up.
