About Me

Hello and congratulations on making the first step towards you new journey! My name is Charnell Benjamin-Carter. I’m a born again Christian and licensed mental health counselor practicing for over 10 years now. I graduated from Nova Southeastern University and completed my Internship at Hyde Park Counseling Center, an Inpatient Residential Facility for women specializing in Eating Disorders and Substance Abuse. My advanced training in Trauma Informed Care and Addictions is beneficial to healing and restoring the family unit.

If you have been having problems in your relationship, I’m sure you’ve received lots of advice from friends, family and maybe even other counselors and wondering why things still seem broken. For years counselors have taught couples to "fight fair" and have active listening skills. While these tools are helpful, it’s not just that simple. I believe in addressing not only the symptoms, but the core issues. I use a multifaceted approach including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Informed, Solution Focused Therapy, Reality Therapy, Conflict Resolution and Family Systems among others. My professional training is backed by over 10 years of experience working with couples and families exploring our faith, what makes relationships work, restoring intimacy in marriage, how to navigate through rough times and repair from trauma and infidelity. I apply some of the same principles taught in the 12 Step Program to treat addictions adding insight on the Disease Model of Addiction. I have assisted couples for over 10 years, and I would like to help you!

Charnell effortlessly employs various professional resources to deliver the most effective sessions. While she guides us to reason in the most empowering way, she’s got a safe mom-like shoulder my partner and I have leaned on lately.
We love you, Charnell - Aby & Abraham
