Michael Charnley, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Sometimes issues grow unmanageable over a long time or sometimes it happens quickly.   No matter how these issues happen it helps to have someone to listen to and support you through those times.  My goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for my clients where they can slow down and start to take apart those issues piece by piece so they can be better understood and dealt with.  I use many different counseling styles but, ultimately, I want my clients to feel like they are just having a conversation about the struggles in their lives.

I started working with teens and their families 24 years ago.  Helping them work through their issues, separately or together, to bring understanding and acceptance back into the relationship. I also work with people of all ages, in both the public and private sector when it comes to issues listed on this profile.

People often ask about being a counselor.  I always answer the same way it is always interesting and it is a privilege that people allow you into their lives.  Just know when those issues arise there are people ready and wanting to help.  I hope you will give me that privilege.
