Bio: Charlie worked for about ten years as a middle- and high-school English teacher before transitioning into the world of individual therapy.

Charlie views therapy as a collaborative experience with the client as the hero of the story. Charlie uses and integrates a variety of treatment approaches to facilitate clients’ journeys of change and deeper understanding. He believes that the time between sessions matters at least as much as the time in the office, so he often encourages clients to complete tasks between meetings.
