One of the most important aspects in our work together is to create a space that fosters safety, trust and openness. When you are in a space where you’re able to access your authentic thoughts, feelings and experiences- that’s where real change and growth can happen!
Throughout our lives we learn ways of navigating the world. Often we don’t have the opportunity or privilege to learn ways of coping and processing that serve us in a beneficial way. We do the best we can with the information we have at the time...and that’s surviving! I’d love to help you move from surviving to truly living! Medication and other forms of intervention can help you turn down the volume on the noise that’s distressing you...but together we can change the channel! I consider myself part of your support team; your cheerleader and someone to hold space for you and your unique experiences.
With the right support, we are able to move through emotions and we avoid becoming stuck. Through a healthy therapeutic alliance and though connecting with yourself, you are able to use what you learn in session to make ongoing shifts in your life.
Engaging in ethical, trustworthy and thoughtful therapy with you is at the forefront of every interaction. I welcome you as you are, however you identify, and in various relationship structures. I am sex, pleasure and kink positive.
Some areas Charlotte enjoys working through with people include sex, sexuality & gender, self-harm and addictions, chronic pain and illness management, crisis responding, relationship breakdowns, workplace stress, emotional dysregulation, child development and issues of parenting,
