About me

Hello, everyone, my name is Chuck. I have been a licensed therapist for over 20 years. I have a bachelors degree in psychology, a masters degree in social work, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
For the past twenty years, I have been in private practice helping individuals with a wide variety of needs. I have worked extensively with individuals with serious clinical disorders such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, and ADHD. In addition, I have had the pleasure of helping people who struggle with the stressors of everyday life such as family, relationship, career, self-esteem, parenting, and life-stage issues.
I have learned over the years that the most important thing in working with people in unquestionably the relationship. I would describe my counseling style as very warm, collaborative and personal. I look forward to working with you!

I can't explain how much I enjoy working with Chuck. I worked with a couple of counselors before, but we just didn't click. With Chuck, I don't think I could have had a better person to work with. Our weekly phone call was one of the highlights of my week. He always listened to me and helped me through numerous issues I was going through. I can honestly say that I am a happier and better person because of the work Chuck and I did. I seriously cannot thank him enough.

Charles is a great all around guy and someone who is very easy to speak with. He made me feel very comfortable during this process and I recommend him to anyone wanting someone with a patient ear to speaks with.
