Written by J.A. on Jan 09, 2022 after therapy with Charles for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I worked with Charles for about two months. Charles was a Godsend for me. It's funny, I originally thought that things would not work because he did not fit my requested description (a woman of color etc.). But, he turned out to be everything I needed and more. Charles was real, honest, relatable, helpful, and respectful to my faith (which was extremely important to me). He helped me to get through some traumatic situations in my personal life as well as microagressions in my career field. He helped me reach a level of forgiveness and insight I probably would not have reached without him. He helped me to develop new perspectives, helped me to reach a healthier mindset, and has helped me to improve my overall life and boundaries. i would HIGHLY recommend this therapist to you. He makes you feel seen even if you never take a look at his face.
I ran into financial strain and will have to end sessions for a while, but I leave feeling stronger and better than before, lighter than before, healthier than before.
When the time comes for me to go to therapy again, I know who I will be requesting! Thank you Charles, for all you have helped me to reach internally in such a short time!

Mental Health Counselor within a group home foster care setting

August 2006 to June 2016

This position is what kept me from pursuing private practice sooner.  I simply loved working as a mental health counselor for the teenaged boys' cottage at a downtown foster care facility. It fed my passion and desire to help teens both survive their trauma while having a clear plan for independence and success later in life.
