About Me

Hello, parents and youth!

I have had more then ten years of experience working with youth of all ages covering a wide variety of issues including self-esteem, depression, divorce and anger issues. I believe that there are a lot of demands and pressure that youth face in the world today. I love that technology like this can help those in need.

One of my favorite mentors/authors/ counselors is quoted to say "owning our story, and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we'll ever do." Brene Brown. I firmly believe in this quote and work to apply this to my personal life. Learning to love ourselves and embrace the journey we are on brings freedom from the multitude of stress life throws our way.

My counseling approach focuses on finding those moments of courage and vulnerability to tackle life's struggles. I find that when clients can explore their values and strengths and pursue their goals and dreams they find the most success and peace in life. My counseling approach utilizes ACT, Solution Focused, CBT and Narrative Counseling Theories.

I have a Bachelor Degree in Psychology and Master degree in Mental Health Counseling.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

Written by R.A. on Oct 23, 2020 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 weeks

Charlotte is wonderful and understanding. I have had inpatient therapy with a psychologist before, but feel like one session with Charlotte has done just as much as months of therapy with my psychologist did. Charlotte using the Bible to help explain some things and help me see things in a different way is also wonderful. Thank you, Charlotte!

Charlotte was very knowledgeable and personable when counseling my husband and I, I really appreciated how approachable and easy to talk to she is!

I have been talking with Charlotte for a short time now, but so far she does a very good job at listening to me and I feel like she understands me well. As time moves forward I would love to update my review

Charlotte has been a great counselor. She understands my concerns and gives me tools to use to help my situation.

Written by C.H. on Sep 04, 2020 after counseling with Charlotte for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and anger management

Charlotte has been such a massive help in dealing with my daily stressors and really listens to what I say. I told her from the get-go that the thought of verbally talking to someone about my mental state made me paranoid and she never once pushed the subject. She messages me regularly and somehow keeps up with all of my mood swings and stress level changes. She's extremely supportive, even with my health issues. If something brings me down, I know I have a safe place to vent about it and I also know that she'll reply back with something I need(ed) to hear. I'm all over the place when it comes to stress management and dealing with life in general and she keeps up. I would probably be in a terrifying state had she not come into my life when she did. I remember reading several counselors profiles and there were 2 that stuck out to me and needless to say, I definitely made the best possible choice for the type of person I am. She slows my thinking process down and she does it in this tough-love type manner and I absolutely LOVE that about her. 10 Stars across the board and a thank you that I couldn't even begin to put into words (and I'm a very wordy person if you haven't noticed, haha!)

It has been nice to be able to chat with someone about my concerns and get it off my chest. The counselor understands where I am coming from and makes recommendations or gives me ideas of how to approach my issues. I appreciate her services.

Written by J.E. on Jun 16, 2020 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

Charlotte is very knowledgeable and easily understands what I am feeling, sometimes to a level that she can articulate it better than I can. She has good suggestions for things to try implementing in daily life that might help with specific struggles. I also feel very comfortable talking to her.

Charlotte has a way of unravelling life’s knots and has helped me work on coping strategies

Helpful and calm, she doesn’t make any of my fears seem silly or foolish.

Charlotte is always in good spirits and easy to talk to. She offers good alternative ways of thinking and going about things.

Ms. Charlotte Carlson has been the most amazing support person! I came to her in a very, very dark time. She treated me with compassion and understanding. She helped me see there is light in the most caring and knowledgeable ways. I recommend her to any woman facing their own dark time. Blessed to have her in my life!

Written by M.A. on Apr 05, 2020 after counseling with Charlotte for 6 months

Charlotte has been a wonderful help to me over the past few months. I know she truly listens to and hears what I have to say. She gently guides me where I need to go and lets me think about and set the direction of my therapy. I consider myself blessed to have found Charlotte when I needed help most.

Written by C.L. on Mar 01, 2020 after counseling with Charlotte for 4 months

I really appreciate Charlotte! She has helped me to manage anxiety and depression. She is great at remembering things that I tell her and she is awesome at connecting the dots and problem solving. I am so grateful to have been connected with her on this app! She is an outstanding counselor, the best counselor that I’ve ever had. She has taught me the importance of self care and has empowered me to face my mental health issues instead of avoiding them.

Written by M.M. on Feb 01, 2020 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, and career difficulties

I have benefitted greatly from Charlotte’s approach to helping me address the issues I have faced both personally as well as professionally. She is fluid, and allows me to discuss these issues as they arise in my life, and is respectful of my comfort level as I push to address matters outside my comfort zone. I look forward to every visit with her.

Written by A.M. on Nov 14, 2019 after counseling with Charlotte for 1 year and 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Charlotte has been there for me in the past and now in the present. Life constantly changes sometimes you need someone that isn’t an a friend to listen, understand and give great advice and that Charlotte has done that for me, that’s why I have come back.

Written by L.I. on Sep 09, 2019 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, and anger management

She really listens to me. I feel like I’m talking with a friend but one that has the knowledge and know-how to help me navigate through my feelings.

Charlotte Dore is attentive and consistent.

Written by L.I. on Nov 26, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, eating disorders, and self esteem

Charlotte was quick to be in touch, explain her services, and respond to messages. She has a warm, friendly personality and is very easy to talk to. Thanks, Charlotte!

Written by L.C. on Aug 03, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Charlotte is the first councilor I've ever had and she definitely puts in the time and thought in the "why" behind the problems which is fantastic. Due to my work schedule and traveling picking up around this time of year, I had to end my counseling after a month since I knew I wasn't getting the most out out of it if I was only able to respond once in a while between breaks in my schedule. This was a bit of a test run to see how I liked counseling since I've never tried it before. I do plan on resuming counseling with her at a later date. Thanks Charlotte!

Written by R.H. on Jul 24, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, self esteem, and bipolar

She is very understanding and easy to talk to.

Written by J.A. on Jun 21, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, and family

Charlotte helped me get through a very difficult time in my life. I would highly recommend her she is very understanding and honest.

Written by K.I. on Jun 07, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and eating

Working with Charlotte has not only helped with accountability for the positive changes I want to make in my life, but has taught me how self-compassion is different from making excuses. I also love the fact that I have 24/7 access to her via the private website. She has really helped me gain clarity and focus and dismantle my limiting beliefs that have kept me stuck. Great counselor!

Written by D.O. on May 26, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

I find comfort in expressing myself to Charlotte with no worry of being judged. I've carried issues inside for so long, it is nice to have a person to unload with. I am always working to better myself, and I don't ever feel she is out to FIX me. Rather she is a great sounding board. I love the ability to write out everything I feel at anytime. She is always prompt in replying. Even when I was pretty wrought with anxiety one evening and needed her immediately. She was right there. She is my safe place:)

Written by D.I. on May 23, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 1 month

Simply wonderful! She is so understanding and kind. She listened to every concern I had, and offered solutions so as to overcome my concerns. She is very responsive and flexible. I really appreciate her support and expertise!

Written by A.S. on May 02, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I enjoy being able to tell her my thoughts and concerns with my relationship and things I see in myself. She is able to talk back to me in a positive way and help me work though things. I am excited to be able to continue to work with her on both myself and my relationship.

Written by A.N. on Apr 27, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 months

Charlotte has a clear understanding of my schedule and needs which is comforting her answers are always filled with hope and answers!

Written by J.E. on Apr 04, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 3 weeks

Charlotte was a great aid in helping me to understand what the root of my hurt was. She was patient, gentle and kind in her encouragement and guidance. I would recommend Charlotte without reservation.

Written by E.R. on Apr 03, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 months on issues concerning depression, relationship, family, and self esteem

Charlotte is AMAZING - there is no other word to describe her. She goes above and beyond to help me. I was not sure about the “online” therapy but honestly I have gotten more from her than I have anyone I have seen in person. She is so willing to talk/video call. I have nothing but GREAT things to say about her and this program. THANK YOU!

Written by C.O. on Mar 17, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and anger

Even though I have never met her in person Charlotte was a big help. She gave me advice that once put into practice began to reshape my thinking and my relationship with my wife. If time and/or money are an issue but you still need professional guidance/support, then you need to check out teen counseling and look up Charlotte Dore.

Written by E.R. on Mar 01, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, parenting, and self esteem

Charlotte is a great counselor for me. She is giving me tips and helps pull me out of my bad days by asking questions to learn more about what's going on in my mind.

Written by G.R. on Feb 02, 2018 after counseling with Charlotte for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career

I was going through a lot of ups and downs while I was communicating with Charlotte, and her responses were always encouraging and supportive. I felt like I was really being listened to, and that my anxieties and fears weren't being dismissed. I also really liked the questions she asked me, they helped me focus in on what I was really looking for and wanting to work toward.

While I wasn't with Charlotte Dore long due to other circumstances, during the time I was she was able to isolate exactly what was bothering me, and quickly gave me things to consider that helped me to begin addressing the issues. I hope soon I will be able to continue talking to her.

Written by N.J. on Jun 22, 2017 after counseling with Charlotte for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, and intimacy-related

I sure have appreciated and respected Charlotte Dore's expertise, kindness, encouragement and motivation with helping me. Thank you so much.

Written by G.R. on Jun 08, 2017 after counseling with Charlotte for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, intimacy-related, parenting, and self esteem

I've enjoyed communicating with Charlotte. She is responsive and has given me some good advice. It's nice to have someone to reach out to during difficult or lonely times. That's one of the things I have enjoyed about teen counseling. I like that I can followup or text anytime I feel like it, day or night. Also, being an introvert, it reduces a lot of the anxiety being able to communicate from the comfort of my home.
