I am 65 years "young" and a man with much experience in life's matters. My MA is in Professional Counseling and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) I am single and live alone. I have been working for 13 1/2 years in Dallas at a Retirement community with over 20 years working with Active Aging Adults. I have a lot of experience in helping you with any of the issues that go with aging for yourself and how to help you out with aging parents and loved ones. Grief / sense of loss from moving / isolation/ abandonment are issues I work with daily. Spouses caring for a sick and dying husband/wife are situations familiar to me.
I forgot to mention that I am 1st a fitness professional and have embraced exercise and good nutrition into my life for years. Here is my website if you need to check me out www.agerciseme.com I have been teaching group exercise for 38 years. I would like to help you with your issues related to Your Aging/Aging Parents and Family/ Nutrition/ Physical Fitness/ self esteem/ Motivation. With COVID19 and all the isolation that is going on with everyone I have developed coping skills that I would like to share with my clients. Keeping yourself up and going and functioning fully in your life through this pandemic is a daily task and you WILL succeed and have a fulfilling /meaningful life despite the pandemic.

Charles is easy to talk to and is comfortable to either give advice and ideas or to just listen and gather information. He is disarming and easily underestimated with his skill. I always enjoy the sessions and find that I discuss core issues without expecting it.

It has been a real honor and pleasure chatting with Charles. I feel we have a established a real good rapport. I always look forward to chatting with Charles, it’s always nice to talk to someone who shares Christian beliefs and values, it means a great deal to me to be able to share my deepest spiritual thoughts and feelings with someone who knows how to graciously respond to someone who is dealing with issues that are to deep for words. Thank You so very much for choosing Charles to be my counselor.
