About me

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.

I conduct 45-minute sessions, beginning on the hour and ending at a quarter till. A "No Show" is considered to be fifteen minutes past the hour. So, the next step is to hop onto my calendar and schedule your first appointment. We'll take it from there. Talk soon!

Charlie is such a direct voice. She knows my history and issues well and uses subtle techniques to help me face up to them and break through. She doesn't use psycho-babble, it's just a conversation between the two of us and she is very attentive to timeliness and frequency so always checking in if I haven't rescheduled. A rock and a rockstar.
