One of my favorite mentors/authors/ counselors is quoted to say "owning our story, and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we'll ever do." Brene Brown. I firmly believe in this quote and work to apply this to my personal life. Learning to be brave and loving ourselves on the journey we are on brings freedom from the multitude of stress life throws our way.
My counseling approach focuses on finding those moments of courage and vulnerability to tackle life's struggles. I find that when clients can explore their values and strengths and pursue their goals and dreams they find the most success and peace in life. My counseling approach utilizes ACT, Solution Focused, CBT and Narrative Counseling Theories.
I have ten years of professional experience working as a counselor. I have extensive knowledge working with addictions, as well and depression, low self-esteem, anxiety and stress management.

Charlotte has become a trusted adviser for me. I believe that she understands my problem and my personality in a way to help me better understand myself. Me beginning to understanding why I feel and react to issues in my life the way I do, helps me to begin to learn how to protect my body from those reactions. I’ve learned a lot from Charlotte. I truly value her insights.

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ review for Charlotte!
I’m new here. I have had >3 sessions now. I also tried group session. This is my first experience with therapy. I was matched with Charlotte via a survey. I feel more than lucky. I feel like she has taken time to get to know my goals of therapy. She respects my belief system. She also offers advise and guidance specific to my situation.
Charlotte is not a scripted, or canned text therapist. She digs in to the nitty gritty and makes recommendations for my life. She has helped me identify areas in need of improvement.
I recommend Charlotte and her amazing skills. I’m looking forward to more sessions. Fingers crossed she can help me with anticipatory grief and anger management.

I feel validated in recognizing that Charlotte truly listens to what I say. Where some therapists provide blanket responses that can oftentimes feel impersonal, Charlotte responds with genuine respect for my emotions and experiences. I feel like an individual, rather than just another “client,” as I have with many other therapists before. I appreciate her willingness to take the time to respect where I am and meet me there in her responses.
