I am very passionate about helping all humans.  I am currently providing mental health and clinical hypnotherapy services both in person and through telemental-health communication.  Feel free to read further through my website, let me know if you have any questions, and feel free to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation.  

You do not have to fight through every challenge on your own.  Mental health and hypnotherapy services are confidential and safe.

 Written by D.E. on Jan 14, 2021 after counseling with Charles for 3 weeks on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and anger management

Charles is very easy to talk to. At times when I get too hard onto myself for things going on in my life, he reminds me of the positive things that I am not recognizing. I always feel much better after our sessions. Charles is down to earth, and I feel that I can speak with him as if he were a friend or close family advisor. He does a good job of putting things into perspective for me, and encourages me to see things from multiple points of view. Overall, it has been a positive experience, and good interaction.

I have been a mental health counselor for more than 20 years, and I have been in Private Practice since April of 2016.  I work with children, teens, adults, and couples.  I provide counseling out of my office in Winter Park Florida, and I provide Telemental-Health Services.

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.

I worked as a mental health counselor within the Orange County school system while working with Devereux. I have experience helping teachers, children, and their families.  I have designed and facilitated after school and summer programs.  I have experience helping children work through the issues involved with the school system today, such as bullying, test anxiety, self-esteem, and community violence.
