About Me

I call myself a geek therapist. What this means is that I am comfortable and conversant in geek culture, and I believe that everyone is a geek about something. I am a veteran of the US Navy, and I got into counseling on the path to becoming a Chaplain for the military. I have completed the education necessary for chaplaincy, but that is not my calling anymore. I have worked with those in acute psychiatric distress for the past 4 years, with populations from 12 years old and up.

My therapeutic focus is on a combination of evidenced based practices. These include, but are not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which focuses on addressing thinking errors and self-sabotage in an effort to bring about changes in behavior; Dialectical Behavior Therapy which focuses on living in the now and teaches skills to help us do so; and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy which focuses on what we can do right now, in order to heal and move forward. I am very humanist in my approach to you as a client, strongly believing that you already have within you the seed to be the ultimate version of yourself. My role as therapist is to help you nurture and grow that seed, so that you can change your story.

Written by W.A. on Jan 08, 2022 after therapy with Charles for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Charles was very kind, educated, attentive and offered advice that we could implement in our daily lives. His expertise definitely helped us improve our communication as a family and to find healthier, more positive ways of communicating. We'd strongly recommend Charles to anyone.
