Hi, I’m Charlie.

Sometimes it seems that at some level many people’s lives have been affected by addiction, either through one’s own personal struggle or watching a loved one struggle with the disease of addiction. If you are currently having concerns about your use, or maybe wondering how you can help a loved one that is struggling with addiction, I can help.

Maybe you are questioning if you are drinking too much on a daily basis or you are having “too” much fun on the weekend with recreational drug use. Maybe you have taken a moment to wonder how your friends are able to stop after one or two drinks, but you continue to drink to excess. These are all questions that we can explore together.

I specialize in helping individuals who are not only struggling with addiction, but are also experiencing a mental health issue. This is sometimes referred to as “dual diagnosis.” For example, often my clients are experiencing anxiety or depression and substance abuse at the same time.

I primarily utilize Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and sprinkle in existential concepts in my practice. I keep my approach patient-centered and provide a non-judgmental, empathetic environment to address your personal issues and goals. Regardless of where you are in your journey to recovery, I am here to help.

A little bit more about me–I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Maryland and have 2 master’s degrees, one in education and the second in applied psychology. I currently work in community psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Hospital and have several years of experience working with young adults, teens, athletes, and college students as they work through various issues related to substance use and mental health.
