Professional statement

Charity is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and an Associate Clinical Addiction Specialist in the Charlotte area. She works with individual adults, adolescents and couples of diverse identity. She specializes in trauma and healing around family dysfunction. She takes a psychodynamic approach to see how history has contributed to their poor coping. She incorporates CBT, DBT, Mindfulness and EMDR, as well as a number of other treatment modalities into her practice. These approaches aid clients who have a pattern of unhealthy thinking that often makes them feel "stuck" and unable to cope with their most basic daily functions. She helps them break away from old thoughts and habits in which they currently operate to begin to identify other alternatives of thinking and living.

Charity has worked with clients with a variety of problems and concerns in a number of clinical and social settings. She has worked in partial hospitalization, community mental health, in the juvenile and adult correction system, in shelters with men and women, with those living with and challenged by substance abuse disorders and those who are severely and persistently mentally ill. She has also served clients across the lifespan who experience challenges related to mood, anxiety, interpersonal difficulties, identity and addiction.

Charity's greatest reward is being alongside her clients on their road to healing and discovery. Seeing clients emerge from the lowest points of their lives, to engaging and being an active participant in their own lives is what continues to inspire Charity to do this very gratifying work.

At this time due to the crisis with COVID, Charity is practicing and seeing clients virtually to provide comfort and safety and to show care for her clients.

Message to clients

Therapy is work that affects the mind and heart of a person. It can be challenging to admit that what people see on the outside is not reflected on the inside. This incongruence often leads to anxiety and depression, in addition to other unhealthy coping. My role is to be readily aware of this discrepancy and help you facilitate changes to improve and restore you to optimal health. I pride myself on creating a culture where clients feel my compassion, warmth and support that cultivates open, honest and trusting relationships.

You are the expert of your life and I am here in collaboration to help you identify themes and patterns that inhibit you and develop skills and insight that will lead to making healthier choices. The fact that you are here, illuminates your self worth and desire for change. This motivation is a brave and great start and remember you do not have to do this alone; I am here with you.
