Charlotte Collins MSW, LCSW
Charlotte Collins is a counselor specializing in helping adults with anger management, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Charlotte has been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which is a specialized therapy method that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Previous clients suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms have benefited greatly from EMDR and have successfully addressed past trauma.
Through empathy and positive support, and by using the Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) structure, Charlotte helps her clients look at their experiences in new ways. By helping them choose tools and ways to measure their progress, she helps her clients meet their mental health goals.
Charlotte generally uses an integrated approach (Rogerian and/or CBT) to help provide a warm and supportive atmosphere for her clients as they work together. Her goal is to help those who are suffering or who want to enhance their quality of life. She does this by listening to her clients with empathy and concern, helping her clients set goals he/she chooses, and helping them discover new options or ways of thinking that will lead to better results/choices in their life.
