Charisse Staine
Self Pay Rate: $99

Charisse Staine, Resident in Counseling, NCC

Philosophy of Care

Charisse Staine is a Limited Licensed Professional Counselor (LLPC) who specializes in treating low self-worth and confidence, depression, anxiety, and insomnia in adults of all ages. Many of Charisse’s clients could benefit from mindfulness, goal setting, and a number of modalities that support optimal cognitive functioning. She also works with college students who are having adjustment issues in college, may have imposter syndrome, or are finding it difficult to connect. Charisse’s clients over 60 years old feel isolated, depressed, or lack the support that they need. They want to become active again, but are not motivated like they once were. Charisse also works with Christian clients who desire to integrate their Christian faith as a part of the therapeutic treatment. She has 30 years of experience in the mental health field.

Charisse completed her Master of Arts (MA) in Psychology at the University of the Rockies and her Master of Education (M.Ed) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Lamar University. She is a Certified Trauma Professional (CPT). Charisse specializes in an eclectic approach to therapy and leans heavily on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). She believes that cognitions can be restructured to produce outcomes that can impact a person mentally, emotionally, and somatically. Each client is unique and has specific needs that can be addressed by a customized intervention that addresses areas for optimization. Charisse uses a holistic approach addressing non-traditional contributors to presenting issues by working with the client to improve psychosomatic issues through diet changes, gentle exercise, and relaxation techniques. Her superpower is motivation. Charisse enjoys helping move people beyond a place of being stuck and gain a sense of being in a world that can seem intimidating.

Counseling creates an empowering relationship between you and your therapist. Counselors collaborate with you to find solutions to current issues in your everyday life, helping you set goals and develop a strategy to reach them. In the process, you learn methods of improving your confidence, emotions, behaviors, and coping skills. Counseling is designed to help you succeed on life’s journey. You may want help addressing major life events or changes, such as the death of a loved one, a divorce, a new marriage, or parenting issues. Counselors can help you find new ways of dealing with stress, depression, or anxiety in a productive, confidential, and supportive way. Counseling can help you move beyond being stuck and become motivated for optimal functioning. Counselors help you explore your own history to understand and change personal behaviors that are unproductive, discover and enhance your unique strengths, and learn coping strategies for self-improvement.

As your counselor, Charisse is committed to treating you like a person, not a diagnosis. She will work with you to design the best plan of moving beyond where you are to where you desire to be. Equipped with a therapeutic background that is tempered with faith, Charisse hopes to help you gain hope for change. Her holistic approach incorporates fortifying your mental health, personal goals, and other components that impact it like sleep, nutrition, and meditation using evidence-based treatments and solutions.
