About Me

Hello, my name is Charles Goodson. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of South Carolina with over 19 years of counseling experience. Throughout my career I have worked with adolescents, families, at risk youth, and individuals struggling with mental illness. I have helped a diverse array of clients dealing with concerns such as: stress and anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, family conflict, grief and loss, and anger management. I am also a Christian Counselor with a passion for helping couples and families, and I am well versed in scripture.
I believe that everyone is endowed with innate strengths to help us through our life struggles. As a counselor it is my job to come along side of each client, and help them to discover their own path to utilizing those strengths . I am eager to listen to you, and assist you in finding a plan that is structured to fit your own personal needs. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, family systems, narrative, and solution focused therapies, and is designed to create an alliance of mutual trust wherein you and I can strive together to successfully navigate the obstacles that you face .
I know it takes courage to make changes in your life, and it is even harder to ask for help. When you are willing to take that step, I am here to help you in your journey.
Remember," Different isn't always better, but better is always different."

Charles is heaven sent! He’s facilitates a safe environment with open and honest conversation. He empathizes and is just as vulnerable as I am. I feel like I have a true partner to come alongside me and work through what I need to work through. I cannot thank god enough for bringing him into my life.

Mr. Goodson is always there to respond to my messages as soon as I'm able to send them. I'm not able to get on a lot, and he has the patience to wait on me until I respond. He also messages me throughout the week, hoping that I have a good week or weekend....which is nice of him :)
