Everyone calls me “Charlie.” It is a nickname I have had since high school. I have a Master of Science Degree; I have a Licensed Professional Counselor Certification and am a National Certified Counselor as well. I feel that counseling is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. When you are in a time of crisis, it is difficult to think rationally. A good counselor will help you navigate those choppy waters so that you can go on to live a richer life. I have studied a great deal about trauma. I have been on a Crisis Response team and worked with victims of natural disasters. I believe that I would be a good fit for you if you have issues in any of these areas. I have found that there is one main issue in life, “I’m Not Good Enough.” A wellspring of difficulties can erupt from this one thing. So, allow me to put my education and my life experiences to work for you. I believe that this is my gift. I want to share that with you.
My treatment approach aims to help individuals develop coping skills, provide emotional support, encouragement, and feedback to help individuals address changes, challenges, and issues they are facing. Change and challenges are a part of life; however, sometimes, we need a little help getting through issues we are experiencing. I frequently draw from motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and solution focused therapy to help clients set goals and overcome their challenges. I use a variety of methods and techniques to provide a personalized approach; using what is most helpful for each individual given the challenges he or she is facing. Through understanding and compassion I help individuals resolve a wide variety of concerns, crisis, psychological issues, and personal changes. Together, we will work to find techniques and solutions that will be the most beneficial to you.

So nice and cares about my mental health
Sharla (Charlie) has been so insightful and helpful as she assists me on my journey of self healing. She uses humor and grace as she gently makes me confront those voices in my head that make me feel not good enough.
She is relatable and easy to talk to. Also, provided great ideas to help me cope with my anxiety
She is absolutely wonderful and helpful!
Sharla, or “Charlie” is wonderful! I look forward to talking to her. Her positive attitude is comforting, and she is nonjudgmental. Highly recommend!
By far one of my favorite people on this earth. Very real and raw and just upfront never condescending. I look forward to chatting every week with her and just exploring the depths of my brain as well as just opening the new and exciting worlds our conversations develop. Definitely has opened my eyes to a lot and i believe helped me further my humbleness and confidence in my everyday life.
I have enjoyed "Charley's" personality and recommendations. I felt listened to and genuine commiseration.
Very helpful and easy to talk to. Had a great first session.
She is great
