Ian Charnley


About Me

With 7+ yrs. as a licensed therapist and 12+ yrs. working in the human services field, I have assisted many individuals, couples, and families through life’s challenges. I have extensive experience working in a variety of settings. Settings have included private practice, non-profit organizations, in-home therapy, therapeutic group homes, and juvenile & adult detention centers. In each setting, I’ve assisted clients through life’s positions that are not planed on being in, and yet find ourselves in.

I believe in a holistic approach to wellness in which a healthy mind, body, and soul lead to a happier, more fulfilling life. I look to strengthen the core of each individual and couple to be able to strive, not just survive, through difficult moments. I provide tools and resources for short-term and long-term growth. The hardest and yet one of the more alleviating steps a client can take is the first step to reach out. As a partner in the therapeutic process, I meet each session with support and commitment.

Written by L.E. on May 14, 2020 after counseling with Ian for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and adhd

I appreciate Ian's help a lot... As I have been in a dark hard place for some time and so I'm happy to take this first step on seeking a counselor / Therapist to dig in deeper and help me understand these issues I have been battling with. It has not been easy. I hope to be able to build the tools and better understanding of where all of this stems from. We are still in the first steps and so I think I need more time to be able to give a better answer to this. But i am willing and very eager to dive in deeper and do the work/changes/acceptance for me to move on and grow. I need to become a bit more confident and stable to be able to achieve my goals—get past a bad break up/heartache and find a sustainable job/work).
