About me

I am a professional counselor, licensed in both Wyoming and Oregon, with over 15 years of experience. I have worked as both a residential substance abuse treatment counselor and as a outpatient mental health counselor with an employee and family assistance program. I have worked with clients with a broad range of issues including substance abuse, depression, anxiety, relationship concerns and sexuality. I have also worked with first responders who have experienced trauma.

My counseling style is warm and supportive, with a little bit of humor thrown into the mix. All clients will be treated with respect and compassion, regardless of where they are on their life's journey. I strongly believe that the client is the only expert of his/her/their life and it is my job to help each one reach their full potential. We enter counseling to change something in our lives; whatever we are currently doing isn't working. But we must change how we think in order for our new behaviors to have lasting change.

To this end, my approach combines cognitive-behavioral, rational-emotive, dialectical-behavioral and client-centered counseling. Just as each client is unique, each treatment plan must be as well. We will work together to create a plan that meets your specific needs. I look forward to our first session!

Written on Mar 12, 2024 after therapy with Charles for 1 year and 10 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Charles is an excellent listener and a supportive, realistic yet optimistic person to have in your corner. Thank you for helping me through one of the toughest times in my life.

Charles helped me during a very dark time in my life late-2022 when I went through multiple layoffs and was going through relationship troubles. I can struggle to hear things in a very blunt manner and operate better through a nurturing system where someone helps you find the answers on your own and Charles does that to a tee. One year later and I can confidently say that 2023 has been the best year of my life because of a stable social life, blossoming career, and most importantly feeling more confident in my own skin.

A lot of that was through the help of Charles.
