Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #LMFT 110872

Char has worked with couples, families, and female and male individuals with a variety of issues and in different settings including private practice, a non-profit counseling center, the San Diego Rescue Mission and a counseling office for missionaries and ex-pats in Kenya, East Africa.

“I believe that we all have had difficult and/or painful experiences in our lives that may cause us to hide and become stuck in our personal beliefs and growth.  I also believe that we all have the capability to find healing and to grow from these experiences; sometimes we just need a little help!  It is my desire as a therapist to meet and accept my clients just as they are, without judgment, and walk with them as they break through their own facades, find healing, and experience growth.”  

Char works with couples, families, children/youth, and female and male individuals experiencing a variety of issues, including:

  • Marital and Relationship Issues, including Betrayal
  • Anxiety/Depression
  • Grief
  • Boundaries
  • Trauma
  • Identity Issues
  • Spiritual/faith-related issues and growth
  • Ministry or missionary issues (adjustments, re-entry)

I specialize in several different methods of treatment, including:

  • Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for marriage and relationship issues
  • EMDR: A therapeutic approach that facilitates healing from current symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of traumatic experiences in the past
  • CBT – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
