More about me

Licensing: LPC Years in Practice: 7 State: Virginia

I hold both, a Bachelors of Science degree in Christian counseling, and a Masters of Art , in professional counseling from Liberty University.

I performed my residency at Counseling Alliance of Virginia, in Charlottesville Virginia. I was with them three years before moving on to open my own small business.

I’m well skilled in working with individuals, both women and men, as well as, the elderly. My use of therapy is integrative, although I do have my favorites; which include, cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness grounding skills. I am also equipped to give Christian-based counseling when desired, and enjoy weaving in faith-based counseling for a more holistic approach.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Starting at $65 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I was pretty nervous about seeking therapy (as it was my very first time.) I prayed to God asking and hoping that whoever was chosen to be my therapist was going to be someone HE wanted me to learn and seek council from …that was full of valuable life/spiritual/ biblical wisdom and could help me to better myself as a believer, wife, mother, friend, teacher, etc. I say all of that to say that God not only answered my prayer, He EXCEEDED my expectations with Charlotte. I don’t think she realizes just how much our sessions have drastically changed my life. She has been such a blessing in my life and I am just so very thankful for her.

Charlotte is amazing. She is everything I ever wanted in a therapist and more.

My initial session with Charlotte was great. One thing I noticed right off the bat is that Charlotte is really easy to talk to. She has a very easy going and warm demeanor that makes confiding in her like talking to your best friend. I really like Charlotte. She is calm, warm, and caring. Her ability to listen without judgment and relate it to other real life examples, really helped me feel heard, and supported. I would recommend her for sure!!!
