My name is Charles and I have been practicing therapy for over ten years. My approach is strength-based and solution oriented. In our work together, I help clients identify their strengths, even if they feel like they don’t have any, and utilize them to overcome any barrier. I believe that changing an aspect of your life takes practice, and I provide the space to do just that. I have worked with adults, teens, and young children who experience depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and anger issues. Currently, many of my clients include families and couples who are going through a transition and need help managing stress and anxiety.

You know the potential your child has, and living in a world where you can better help them navigate their development is possible.
Parenting can be tough. You wonder if your child will ever grow out of their excessive worries, meltdowns, or tantrums, and you become exhausted and feel guilty for being frustrated with them. The nightly battle with homework and reports from school are wearing you down. The power struggle with your spirited toddler or your strong willed adolescent may leave you overwhelmed and wondering what you can do differently. Communicating and feeling unified with your partner or caregiver may be difficult or your styles may be different, creating a state of uncertainty or chaos in the home.

Whether it's a child and parents conjointly receiving treatment together, or a couple being seen together by one clinician and separately with their own clinicians, there are many benefits of collaborative therapy, which has a strong prognosis.
In 2020, I opened a private practice. I was blessed it grew to full capacity but dealt with sadness of turning people away due to no space. Frequently people shared their difficulties with finding therapy. I am tired of people and families, who are suffering emotionally not getting the help they need. So, I put together a group of several skilled clinicians. We operate by providing a therapy environment that is confidential and emotionally safe. We’re dedicated to making people feel comfortable and understood when discussing the most sensitive issues. Our goal is to ensure support that is empathetic and non-judgmental.

Do you worry if she is making the right choices? As a parent, you want the best for your child . Perhaps it was easier when they were younger. Now that she is a teenager, things are more difficult. These days the world is complicated. Children are influenced by their peers, the internet, and the media. Maybe you are feeling like you used to have a close relationship and now your teen is more distance. Many parents who come to see me ask "Why is she so angry?" At times you may feel like you don't know what to do?

Is your child or teenager depressed or acting out in ways that have you concerned? Are you worried about your child or teenager's behavior and emotional well being following a divorce? Is the lack of communication and intimacy in your relationship so exhausting that you feel like giving up? Are you a woman in the midst of life transitions and need some help moving forward? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, there is help. I have been in private practice for 25 years, actively helping my clients to put problems into a workable perspective and create a realistic plan for a healthy and balanced life.

I've worked with adults, as well as infants, children and teens.
Working through difficult times makes us, and our relationships, stronger. Making the decision to begin therapy isn't always easy, but sometimes it's just what you need to get your life back on track. Despite the stereotype of a therapist being someone who will, "tell you what to do," my role is to listen and help you toward hearing your own answers. It can offer you insight and perspective so you can achieve what you are striving for in your life. Together, we can explore what is getting in the way of you living a happier life.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
