About Me

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. In addition I have strength in addressing grief and loss as well as career issues. I have a Bachelor Degree in Psychology and Master degree in Mental Health Counseling.

I have benefitted greatly from Charlotte’s approach to helping me address the issues I have faced both personally as well as professionally. She is fluid, and allows me to discuss these issues as they arise in my life, and is respectful of my comfort level as I push to address matters outside my comfort zone. I look forward to every visit with her.

Charlotte has been there for me in the past and now in the present. Life constantly changes sometimes you need someone that isn’t an a friend to listen, understand and give great advice and that Charlotte has done that for me, that’s why I have come back.

She really listens to me. I feel like I’m talking with a friend but one that has the knowledge and know-how to help me navigate through my feelings.

Charlotte Dore is attentive and consistent.

Charlotte was quick to be in touch, explain her services, and respond to messages. She has a warm, friendly personality and is very easy to talk to. Thanks, Charlotte!

Charlotte is the first councilor I've ever had and she definitely puts in the time and thought in the "why" behind the problems which is fantastic. Due to my work schedule and traveling picking up around this time of year, I had to end my counseling after a month since I knew I wasn't getting the most out out of it if I was only able to respond once in a while between breaks in my schedule. This was a bit of a test run to see how I liked counseling since I've never tried it before. I do plan on resuming counseling with her at a later date. Thanks Charlotte!

Working with Charlotte has not only helped with accountability for the positive changes I want to make in my life, but has taught me how self-compassion is different from making excuses. I also love the fact that I have 24/7 access to her via the private website. She has really helped me gain clarity and focus and dismantle my limiting beliefs that have kept me stuck. Great counselor!

I find comfort in expressing myself to Charlotte with no worry of being judged. I've carried issues inside for so long, it is nice to have a person to unload with. I am always working to better myself, and I don't ever feel she is out to FIX me. Rather she is a great sounding board. I love the ability to write out everything I feel at anytime. She is always prompt in replying. Even when I was pretty wrought with anxiety one evening and needed her immediately. She was right there. She is my safe place:)

Simply wonderful! She is so understanding and kind. She listened to every concern I had, and offered solutions so as to overcome my concerns. She is very responsive and flexible. I really appreciate her support and expertise!

Charlotte is AMAZING - there is no other word to describe her. She goes above and beyond to help me. I was not sure about the “online” therapy but honestly I have gotten more from her than I have anyone I have seen in person. She is so willing to talk/video call. I have nothing but GREAT things to say about her and this program. THANK YOU!

Even though I have never met her in person Charlotte was a big help. She gave me advice that once put into practice began to reshape my thinking and my relationship with my wife. If time and/or money are an issue but you still need professional guidance/support, then you need to check out BetterHelp and look up Charlotte Dore.

Charlotte is a great counselor for me. She is giving me tips and helps pull me out of my bad days by asking questions to learn more about what's going on in my mind.

Written by G.R. on Feb 02, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career

I was going through a lot of ups and downs while I was communicating with Charlotte, and her responses were always encouraging and supportive. I felt like I was really being listened to, and that my anxieties and fears weren't being dismissed. I also really liked the questions she asked me, they helped me focus in on what I was really looking for and wanting to work toward.

While I wasn't with Charlotte Dore long due to other circumstances, during the time I was she was able to isolate exactly what was bothering me, and quickly gave me things to consider that helped me to begin addressing the issues. I hope soon I will be able to continue talking to her.

I sure have appreciated and respected Charlotte Dore's expertise, kindness, encouragement and motivation with helping me. Thank you so much.

I've enjoyed communicating with Charlotte. She is responsive and has given me some good advice. It's nice to have someone to reach out to during difficult or lonely times. That's one of the things I have enjoyed about BetterHelp. I like that I can followup or text anytime I feel like it, day or night. Also, being an introvert, it reduces a lot of the anxiety being able to communicate from the comfort of my home.
