Charnell Benjamin-Carter

About Me

Hello and congratulations on making the first step towards your new journey! My name is Charnell Benjamin-Carter. I’m a born again Christian and licensed mental health counselor practicing for over 10 years now. I graduated from Nova Southeastern University and completed my Internship at Hyde Park Counseling Center, an Inpatient Residential Facility for women specializing in Eating Disorders and Substance Abuse. My advanced training in Trauma Informed Care and Addictions is beneficial to healing and restoring the family unit.

If you have been having problems in your relationship, I’m sure you’ve received lots of advice from friends, family and maybe even other counselors and wondering why things still seem broken. For years counselors have taught couples to "fight fair" and have active listening skills. While these tools are helpful, it’s not just that simple. I believe in addressing not only the symptoms, but the core issues. I use a multifaceted approach including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Informed, Solution Focused Therapy, Reality Therapy, Conflict Resolution and Family Systems among others. My professional training is backed by over 10 years of experience working with couples and families exploring our faith, reducing depression & anxiety, exploring what makes relationships work, how to navigate through rough times and repair from trauma and infidelity. I apply some of the same principles taught in the 12 Step Program to treat addictions adding insight on the Disease Model of Addiction. I have assisted individuals and families for over 10 years, and I would like to help you!

Charnell is helping me to process some major relationship trauma, and working through this with her guidance is very helpful. Rather than going round and round in my head, I am learning to examine specific issues and move past them.

I feel so relaxed around Charnell. I'm quite an awkward person so the way I feel I can talk about anything really puts me at ease. Thanks Charnell!

Charnell is absolutely amazing. I went through a few different counselors on this app and didn’t mesh with any of them but I clicked with her right away. I love that I can speak to her about anything and how knowledgeable she is, whether it be about relationships, family, work, religion, etc. I can tell her all aspects of my life and she is able to give me meaningful feedback that I can actually use. The advise she’s gives is realistic and practical. There are also times where we may not agree but she steps up and challenges me in a positive way. It’s been beneficial to my growth and I’m thankful for the relationship we have. Overall, my experience with her has been great.

I've only had one session with Charnell, but she already pointed me to a root issue which was making me contradict myself and stay bound in an unhealthy relationship. She helped me see the parts of myself that I need to see in order to get free. That's everything I was hoping for!

Charnell has been the best therapist I've had, she really understood my problems and gave me practical solutions to fix them I would recommend anyone to give her services a go.

Charnell is very helpful and is helping me through a tough time. The app allows me to feel like I always have support and instant messaging allows me to get things off my chest and have my counselor help me when I need it.
