Charles is a great listener and I feel like he gets me. We’ve had some really good visits and I always come away with positive reinforcement AND some specific, manageable action items that I feel excited to implement. I’ve found the help I needed!

He’s a great therapist. I’m actually skeptical of this whole process, but I’m loving working with Charles.

Charles Johnson is very personable, open, and good at listening. Helps me feel safe and listened to because he addresses concerns and goals throughly. Also, helps educate why I may feel what I feel and what are things that may help benefit in getting better using worksheets/informational handouts. Would definitely recommend highly!!

Charles has been an amazing therapist! He truly listens, and helped me troubleshoot my plan if it wasn't working. He also checked on me during current events that impacted many lives whether positive or negative.

Charles is amazing. teencounseling.com is amazing. I found them both at a time of crisis, and I plan to continue to have and use these valuable mental health tools throughout my life. I like to think of them like a personal trainer and gym for my mental health. :)

Charles has been amazing. I don't even feel like I'm in therapy yet I get so much out of our sessions. He listens and validates me. He has the knowledge and resources to help me be in the best emotional state I've been in for years despite being in one of the roughest spots in life I've ever been in.

Charles is one of the best people to JP Mobile RV Repair with. He takes time to focus on just me even if he has a family or anything else. He truly is someone that will listen and give his professional opinion.

Written by K.Y. on Jan 24, 2022 after therapy with Charles for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Charles is great! Has helped me a lot so far. I still have things to work though. But I plan on keeping him as my therapist. I'll always need one especially with my job (I'm an EMT) and he understands the day to day struggles as a first responder.

Written by S.A. on Jan 20, 2022 after therapy with Charles for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

Charles is just an amazing human being. He makes you feel seen and validated- all while helping you through everything. I was very wary to try talking to a therapist, but I felt comfortable talking to him immediately! Even on hard days I know that he is there to support in any way he can..

Charlie is easily the best therapist I've ever had. His perspective and approach are the perfect balance of professional and personable. He celebrates my success just as much as I do and leaves me with the confidence I need to make necessary life changes. I honestly wish I could've found him sooner!
