About me

Adolescence is the most difficult time of all. Kids are not little kids anymore and yet they are not quite adults. They are searching for an identity separate from their parents and it can be quite a bumpy road. I studied a master theorist, Piaget. He wrote volumes of information on "Adolescent Egocentrism". During this time, kids feel invincible, that nothing will happen to them, and they are the center of the universe. It takes understanding parents to allow their child the room to find their unique identity without totally disrupting the entire family. I believe that I am particularly good at helping with this childhood developmental issue. Working together, we can help your young adult emerge as a well-rounded and fully functioning individual.

I conduct 45-minute sessions, beginning on the hour and ending at a quarter till. A "No Show is considered to be fifteen minutes past the hour. Now ... the first step is to hop onto my calendar and schedule an appointment. We'll take it from there. Talk soon! Charlie

Written on Nov 07, 2022 after therapy with Charlie for 1 year and 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and trauma and abuse

Charlie responds so quickly. She would be the one to speak when I couldn't find the words. She helped me build my self-esteem and get better at setting and enforcing boundaries. She helped change my life. If it weren't for her, I would still be stuck in an abusive relationship. What she does is a really big deal. She is changing lives for the better and I am appreciative.

Charlie has been a great help. I started with her at one of the most challenging moments in my life and she helped me pull through. She’s kind, funny, insightful and so understanding. Best decision I ever made.

Written on Sep 14, 2022 after therapy with Charlie for 8 months on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Sharla (Charlie) has changed my life. When I started in therapy 9 months ago I didn’t know who I was, I was heartbroken and completely lost. She listened to my concerns every week without failure and guided me through positive thoughts, affirmations, provided me with the tools to find my self esteem and love myself. I feel so much happier today and hardly recognise the person I was when I first started.
I am so grateful for everything she has done for me and honestly can say she is the best therapist I have ever worked with.

Written on Aug 12, 2022 after therapy with Charlie for 2 weeks on issues concerning trauma and abuse

Charlie has a very kind yet professional demeanor. I appreciate the personal messages each and every day I journal. She provides a lot more responsiveness than I would expect form a therapist! It's been nothing but a blessing seeing the messages pop up from her throughout the week. I really feel comfortable unpacking everything I have to say because she keeps the conversation going in a very personal way. I could not recommend her enough!

Written on Mar 31, 2022 after therapy with Charlie for 3 months on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Working with Charlie has been one of the best investments I have made in myself. She is both sympathetic and direct. I sought her help after a long, difficult chapter in my marriage. Following each session, Charlie provided action items; all of which were helpful and will be put to good use time and time again. It feels so good just to be grateful to be in my wife's presence again. Thank you Charlie.

Written on Mar 21, 2022 after therapy with Charlie for 1 year and 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Charlie has truly changed my life. Before seeing her, I was very hard on myself and not in a good place in life. After each session, she gave me the tools to help me heal myself. I felt my concerns were valued and she really empathized with me to help me get a new outlook on the things life has dealt me. Without her help, guidance and expertise I don’t know where I would be today. I am very proud of the progress I have made by seeking therapy with Charlie. Charlie I can’t thank you enough, you’re amazing! Much love
