I am a masters level mental health therapist/Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner (LIMHP), sole proprietor. I have earned 2 masters degrees; one in community and one in clinical counseling. I complete evaluations for diagnosis then treat clients accordingly. I have approximately 13 years of experience in mental health therapy, many of which entail severe mental disorders such as: schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, RAD (reactive attachment disorder), PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), major depressive disorder (MDD), anxiety disorders, ADHD/ADD (attention deficit disorder), and developmental disorders. I have experience in marriage/couples, family, children, teen, and group counseling and have treated clients from 4 to 80 years of age.
As a therapist, most of the time I use the CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) approach which challenges negative thinking of a person and helps to view certain situations more positively/differently in order to respond in a different way. Another type of therapy approach I may use is SFT (solution focused therapy) which entails focusing on future goals and finding solutions rather than focusing on current problems or issues from the past. This therapy can be brief, but not always. Sometimes clients just want to talk and that is it, just to help sort things out and put their lives into perspective. For this type of therapy, I may challenge with questions and reflect what is said, but in a different fashion. I am pretty eclectic and flexible in terms of treating clients, meaning therapy can entail approaches that use a variety of methods that match the needs of the client, as I believe that one approach will not work for all clients.
I truly have a passion for helping others. I love making a difference in peoples' lives and feeling a sense of well-being and purpose. When listening to clients, I feel I am very empathetic and have a great understanding towards their situations. I want to help clients along their journey of change through therapy and make a difference in their lives.

Great experience about Bipolarity.
With Charlotte's insight there have been a number of major emotional disturbances that have been either relinquished or diminished substantially after getting me on the right medication and the right amount. After working for so many years with so many other medications that didn't work, for me it was something of a miracle.. There is another side my issues that medication won't be effective. Where working to see if we can find a way to reduce or alleviate the problem.. She is competent, sincere and has provided me with several means by which to deal with the problem. Sometimes I'm not us dogged in exercising her suggestions and that of course is my own doing or undoing as it were.
Charlotte has been fantastic to work with. She has a lot of empathy for her clients and uses her personal experiences to provide perspectives.
I’m very happy, and it’s just getting started.
