About me

As a therapist, I specialize in serving adult, children, adolescents and families who are dealing with trauma, substance use disorders, mood disorders, anxiety, delinquency, ADHD and other related behavioral health issues. I offer individual therapy and draw from my extensive experience as a social worker in the public sector where I worked with Drug Court, Juvenile Courts and Juvenile Justice Services. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice from Weber State University, and later a Master degree in Forensic Social Work from the University of Utah.

Finding a therapist that you can connect with and feel comfortable with can take time. Being aware of this, I was pleasantly surprised with how quickly I was able to feel that Charlie cares deeply and is undoubtedly passionate about helping others. He listens well and has the expertise which I believe can help me in the best ways possible. He is easy to understand and he is easy to communicate with. I'm very lucky and so thrilled to have him as my therapist!! I am excited to continue my journey in learning and progressing as an individual with Charlie's help. Great things are yet to come!
