About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor with over 15 years of experience.

I love establishing a cooperative relationships with clients by listening carefully to their concerns and understanding those concerns clearly. As I gain understanding I will bring my professional knowledge and experience to the process and respectfully offer direction toward helping you resolve your presenting concerns.

I have no single approach to counseling but utilize a number of appropriate and time-tested approaches as useful tools. Cognitive Behavioral approaches can often be helpful in gaining insight into self-defeating behavior patterns and negative self-messaging issues. Meditation practices can also be helpful at times to find one's real values within the confusion of life and transition.

I'm aware of how daunting it can be to open your heart and life to another person even a practiced professional, but when you are ready, it is an empowering and joyous journey. I hope we can work together.

Charles has consistently coached me through a variety of issues and life changes I've had. He has given me a variety of useful coping tools. Although extremely supportive and attentive to unique needs and issues, at the same time he holds you accountable to ensure that your sessions are as effective as possible. I highly recommend Charles.
