Background and Experience
Charlotte was born in Yokosuka, Japan, and grew up living on a Naval base in Japan, and in Florida for
her formative years. Charlotte is fluent in Japanese and English. She has a deep appreciation for other
cultures and applies her multiculturalism in her career and life. While in Florida, Charlotte worked as a counselor with diverse client populations, such as adults and veterans with persistent mental illness, children and adolescents with trauma and mood disorders, and their families. Since moving to Texas, Charlotte has worked for the North Texas Crisis Hotline conducting in-person crisis assessments and currently works as a program therapist with individuals struggling with various eating disorders at the Eating Recovery Center. Charlotte has worked in a multitude of treatment settings including homes, schools, non-profit agencies, treatment centers, and hospitals. Charlotte values personalized care for her clients, and utilizes an eclectic and person-centered style of counseling to best fit the individual she works with.
I believe that in therapy, trust is the crux of healing. As a counselor, it is my mission to create a
trustworthy, caring, and safe therapeutic alliance with my clients so that they are empowered to be their
genuine self, both in and outside of our sessions together. In therapy, I gravitate towards a collaborative
process, where I learn about their unique perspectives and the life experiences that shaped them, so that we
are able to establish solutions as a team. My personal experiences inside and outside of the counseling
field have cemented my belief that when in pain, one must be heard and supported. I am driven by
my passion to help others cope, process, and alleviate their pain so that they are able to live life to their
full potential. I look forward to navigating healing together.
