Hello, and thanks for reading my therapeutic profile. I have been a mental health counselor for 17 years, and I am very passionate about what I do. I am a firm believer that we must do our best to address the needs of our Soul, Body, and Mind, and when one feels one area is suffering, it is really a reflection of how all three may be.
I use various techniques within the way I provide counseling, but with someone who has the ability and know-how to seek therapy this way, it is safe to say that we will be operating on a more cognitive level. Let's work to challenge the negative distortions that are stopping you from feeling good about yourself. Let's challenge the memories associated with others telling you what you can or can't do. Let's embrace what is in your control and do our best to at least take a small step in a new direction without worrying about any type of correction from others. Let me know if I can be of assistance to you.
As I stated earlier, my style varies based on what your needs are, and I will do the best I can to make sure you are aware of your personal strengths that can assist you with making positive changes in your life.

I am very grateful for my counselor. Charles has provided to me a caring sounding board or listener then professional guidance, tools, and suggestions to help. I am grateful. Thank you.
Great counselor. Trusted advisor.
Charles is very easy to talk to. At times when I get too hard onto myself for things going on in my life, he reminds me of the positive things that I am not recognizing. I always feel much better after our sessions. Charles is down to earth, and I feel that I can speak with him as if he were a friend or close family advisor. He does a good job of putting things into perspective for me, and encourages me to see things from multiple points of view. Overall, it has been a positive experience, and good interaction.
Great person and excellent advice!
Charles made me feel comfortable right away and asked the right questions to dig deeper into where my healing is needed. From there I was on my way to feeling so much better and on a path I have needed to be on for years. I’m so grateful.
In just a few sessions I have made some great progress. Charles has been very helpful, listens to everything that needs to be talked about and offers great insight. Definitely recommend him!
Charles offered some immediate tools to help me diffuse depression. He reframed the negative thoughts I had about myself and gave me a different perspective. His focus is about problems I am having today, not digging into the past. Very helpful.
He is a good counselor. He listened before judging or suggesting anything. Also was very comfortable talking to him about intimate details a a female.
Charles Mendler has helped bin just the little time I’ve worked with him. I feel his perspective runs along the same as mine and is able to help me understand what he’s saying when I’m confused.
Charles has been great. He really understands and gives you the help you need when you need it. Highly recommend him he’s a great guy.
Charles is extremely easy to talk to and super down to earth. He’s introduced a few techniques early on and they’ve been amazing.
Charles Mendler is awesome. He always responds to me in a timely manner and he let's be voice my concerns and works with me towards the goal. He does not use generalizations, rather he listens to my individual needs. Also l particularly like that he doesnt tell me how to feel, he validates my feelings, explores my previous coping mechanisms and l always feel better after an appointment. He always gives me an assignment to work on and it is not always something too challenging that l give up. With baby steps l am in a better place . Thank you!
Amazing therapist! Highly recommend.
I’ve been seeing Charles for a few months. Really grateful to have stumbled onto him! I always leave my sessions feeling good. Hes helpful and knows just the right amount of advice to give while also giving room to air thoughts out. I struggle with anxiety and he’s given me some really helpful tips on how to deal with that, mentally and through different practices. Very easy to talk to. Thank you Charles !
I swear he’s the best therapist I ever had. I know I’m a person who talks a lot but he lets me talk, he actively listens, and he relates to me a lot. He understands my situations and provides me with excellent advice when it comes to how to respond to my difficulty situations. He always gives me assurance and support and I truly appreciate him. He is a strong support for me right now when it comes to my mental and emotional issues.
Charles makes me feel important, seen, and heard. It's been clear from the beginning that our sessions are about me. It feels completely unforced, too--his entire demeanor, methodology of listening, and manner of responding make it so clear. His genuine priority is my wellbeing.
Charles is a fantastic therapist. He is very easy to talk to and knowledgeable about the issues being discussed.
Charles is great at what he do. I feel safe and comfortable talking to him about my issues.
I’ve only just started working on myself but I really like how the conversation is going and find it helpful to be able to talk things out. The conversation is always good and attentive to my thoughts and feelings.
I really enjoy working with Charles. It has only
Been 2 weeks but from our first session I feel so much progress. I feel seen, heard and in a safe space to share. I feel zero judgement or shame which is important to me dealing with my trauma. Charles is a true expert and I feel so grateful to be able to work with him.
Professional, well-manured l, and very polite. Great listener who provides insightful feedback on a variety of issues. Helped me with many concerns.
Cares about his work, gives lots of options.
So far so good! I’ve been extremely busy so haven’t engaged as much as I hoped but I think the service and platform is excellent
I sent my sister to him and she’s my favorite person in the world. So you can imagine how much he has done for me.
Charles really spent the right amount of time just listening to me at first, all in an effort to determine how he can best help me, rather than coming across as a know it all who if you'd only listened to them you'd have done well at whatever. I've dealt with a couple counselors who all acted as if they knew better than me right off the bat without listening to what my struggles are. I did not once feel like Charles was being condescending to or just humoring me. Basically, he treats me like a real person and as an equal, unlike the previous counselors I've dealt with. Would highly recommend him to others! (Btw I tried to hit 10 for that question but my finger slipped and hit 8!)
Strong supporter, divine listener and I love the perspectives he uses. For sure a great life coach. I’m inspired.
I’ve been just recently started therapy with Charles, but feel I’m already feeling better. I feel in a few months and more sessions I’ll have solved and learned how to deal with the issues I have.
So far I’ve really liked doing counseling this way. I’ve done it both the traditional way and now tried this. Makes counseling more accessible with a busy family life.
On top of being very professional and tact, Charles is a very down to earth person who makes himself very approachable and relatable. He is very good at reinforcing new, good habits and helping you celebrate small wins to make progress towards your ultimate growth and life goals. 10/10
Still new at this, but AWESOME experience so far. Love the positive feedback & suggestions.
Understanding, smart, and helpful. Best decision I’ve made this year!
Charles is a really awesome therapist I feel like he really does understand where I am coming from we have only been working together in therapy for a few weeks but I’m excited to see what the future holds. I am very grateful for this.
Charles is one of the best counselors I have ever had. He’s one of the few people that can listen to me and understand what I’m trying to say. He’s helped me when i needed a neutral third party to help guide me into being in a better place. He is one of the best and I would strongly recommend him.
Love working with Charles, not only is he approachable but effective. Had no idea what to expect coming into counseling, but to be honest I wasn’t Expecting all these positive results.
Charles was a phenomenal counselor and I appreciate all that he has done for me. He taught me alot and helped me learn more about myself. Thank you Charles!
He has truly been helping me with things I’ve been holding onto while providing plenty of advice on how to move forward and got me thinking about so much. I have tried other counselors on here and I wouldn’t trade him at all.
Charles is a phenomenal counselor. I am so glad I have him!
Charles is a very valuable part of my team of people I have to help me through life. He really helps me find the answers (and I’m always the guy with the answers) when I’m at a loss. By providing helpful new perspectives and always remindIng me of what’s most important. I would really hate to try to accomplish everything I am without the support of someone like Charles.
For a few months Charles has been helping me with anxiety. He actually listens to everything I say, seems to genuinely care, and I always feel more at ease after our sessions. He has given me multiple ways to cope with certain situations, and he has taught me the difference between facts and anxious thoughts. Charles is extremely easy to talk to and he knows when to be serious and when to add just the right amount of humor. I highly recommend Charles Mendler.
Charles has helped me immensely since starting counseling. I have seen my life improve in all aspects as he has helped me through the issues that I have communicating with my love ones.
Charles has a very good take on those situations which commonly frustrate us. His sessions are packed with clever insight, because he is truly paying attention and responding in constructive ways. I really like his approach to therapy.
Charles is a great listener. He made me feel like I was talking to a long time friend and not a counselor. I felt comfortable opening up to him. His feedback helped me to gain perspective on my issue.
Chuck is a real down to earth guy that can relate to my issues. He has be a tremendous help.
Charles is an awesome counselor. He makes the hard topics easy to talk about and helps me understand why I feel the way that I do... In the midst of a storm it's very helpful to have the guidance of someone who has a clear unobstructed view of what's going on so I can make the best choices for myself. Charles guidance makes it possible for me to begin doing this...I'm tremendously grateful for his help.
I have been so very pleased with Charles. He does not push me to respond right away, which I need with my busy schedule. He has offered me insights on my issues that click and make me view things in a better way.
I appreciate how Charles takes time to address the different topics and thoughts I’ve shared with him to help me feel more at ease about my situations. This also helps bring clarity and perspective to the issues I encounter on any given day.
Charles has been a great help to have an outside party to speak with. His advice is logical and he listens to understand your problem. Charles has made me change my viewpoint about getting outside help. Before him I was skeptical, but he has made me see a whole different side.
Charles has been an invaluable part of creating my new self. As a survivor of lifelong narcissistic abuse, I had grown accustomed to being unheard, invalidated and blamed.
Charles listened to me on my own terms by typing all of my sessions (which I preferred) and went over the key traumas of my life with me. He has not only been constant in his contact, he more often than not initiated it to check in on how I was if I had been quiet for a time.
Charles never at any point rushed me away from a pain I was feeling toward a "let it go/get over it" approach. He has stayed with me and my issues for as long as I needed to grow. He has never at any point said I should move on/I was obsessed/I was fixating. However long I needed, however many times I needed to repeat a problem is precisely what Charles allowed me.
He is an attentive, proactive, affirming and comforting professional who embodies all I had hoped therapy could provide. His words have empowered me and helped lay to rest decades of suffering.
Wonderful counselor! He has the perfect balance of being a great listener while also giving feedback and suggestions when applicable. Very thorough, friendly, understanding, and helpful! I'm so happy to have a counselor like him!
I’ve only been working with Charles for a few weeks, however he’s been extremely helpful and supportive of making the right decisions on what’s best for my healing. He keeps it real and doesn’t sugar coat! If I’m wrong he’ll let me know, but also guide me on ways on becoming a better human being. Extremely thankful for his knowledge and patience! Therapy has really done a number on me in helping me!
Charles has been an excellent counselor and overall supportive friend on my journey to overcoming my issues. He’s been there to listen and offer advice during the tough times and the good times too. He’s understanding but also firm and doesn’t let me get away with excuses, and I am grateful for that. He encourages me to constantly push forward into unknown territory and become the very best person I can be.
Charles Mendler has been amazing. I was worried about the efficacy of the help I would receive from the app but my experience with it has been amazing. Charles Mendler has been able to address every single concern I’ve had and was able to break things down in a way I could understand and grasp in order to see what steps I could take to make progress. Within the first week of receiving help I saw a huge difference in my health. As a result I saw myself continuing to use this service and continuing on with my counselor as it made a tremendous improvement upon my life. I can’t believe I waited this long before I reached out on here.
Mr. Mendler is an excellent counselor. He's very attentive and addresses your issues no matter how trivial they may seem. Listening is very important and he does just that. He has a very positive approach to counseling, but will definitely call you out if need be. I've learned that you have to work for your own happiness, but Mr. Mendler is certainly an asset if you're trying to find it.
His calm demeanor makes it very easy to communicate. He is very professional and supportive.
Charles is attentive, a good listener, and gives good advice. He knows how to relate to your situation and empathize.
Absolutely amazing counselor and I highly recommend!
I have been through the worst months of my life in the last few months and I reached out to Charles to assist me and teach me ways to alleviate my grief. I have been able to move forward and work through my pain with Charles advice. He’s a wonderful counselor and very easy to talk to.
Charles Mendler is attentive, understanding and responsive. I feel as if I can talk about anything with him. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone else having career issues.
Charles is wonderful and gave me the confidence I needed to take charge of the issues I was having in my life. I would highly recommend him!
I am completely satisfied with Mr. Mendler's services. He gives great advice and is very encouraging. I feel like a very lucky person gathering advice from him. I definitely recommend Mr. Mendler over any other counselor.
He is very patient and very understanding and compassionate. He is brilliant at helping you work through problems and he has a way of introducing the truth that's simply brilliant. He's simply amazing!
He has been amazing, his words has helped helped me so much. He doesn't just listen or reads on what you are saying or writing about, but actually helps you, give great advice, and helps you to understand.
I was paired up with Charles Mendler when I signed up with BetterHelp when my daughter died in November. He was always there for me and helped me get to a place where I could deal with my grief on a daily basis.
Charles really listened to me, he patiently helped me work together through my story. He suggested things I could do at home to help myself and encourages healthy mind, body and soul. He even includes help I can give for my child. He doesn't rush through treatment or judge at all. And he answers my messages even if I write twice a day. Great counselor!!!
He truly is great at this! This is my 1st time seeking therapy and he was so enlightening and compassionate of my emotions, not to mention spot on when it came to what could be the root of some issues. You can tell he loves what he does for sure!
Charles Mendler is amazing specialist and just brilliant at his job. He helped me with my issues and anxieties so I can avoid prescription medicine and substitute it with natural ways of feeling better. He is very understanding and supportive at all times. I am very happy and satisfied with him.
He couldn't be a better match for me with therapy. His insights and way of wording things are brilliant. He is patient, compassionate, kind, consistent, truthful, insightful and funny; all of this and more with just the right timing!
