Charlene is a provider I highly recommend to see for individual counseling. She is what I call a professional. Her preference is adults but she is also able to service adolescents, covering various topics such as depression, anxiety, medical co-morbidities, stress management, dual diagnosis, trauma, grief, mindfulness meditation, DBT, CBT, and cultural issues.
