Many young people struggle
Mental health issues often complicate the path to adulthood, and many young people struggle with anxiety, fear, and depression in silence. These things can often complicate transitioning into adulthood successfully. For young adults ages 18-28 is a critical stage of independence and responsibility and for some it's a hurdle that can feel insurmountable. I facilitate clients moving from the problem into the solution. I provide accountability, ensure consistency, provide structure, support, and empower you to reach your short term and long term goals while taking into consideration your values, passions, and mental health struggles. I approach my sessions methodically and with a sense of humor and compassion.

The answer that repeatedly plays in your head that you are afraid to say aloud, “I have no f**cking idea.”
You’ve graduated high school or college and the dreaded question, what’s next for you is constantly asked by your parents, friends, family members, professors, and advisors. It can be a difficult question to answer.
But you can’t say that so you reply with a “safe” answer instead. All the while you're thinking “what is the plan for the rest of my life, I don’t even know what I want to eat for breakfast or what I want to wear most days." You become paralyzed with the fear of making the wrong choice so you become stuck and don’t make any choice at all. Feeling stuck can result in a sense of hopelessness and lack of control that makes it hard to even take one step forward. You continue to stay connected to your friends via social media and see the highlight reel of their successes and become depressed, stressed, and can’t get no damn rest!! Good news change is possible!!

let's talk about it
Hi! I’m Charlene. I am a mental health coach, licensed therapist, and altruist. I am passionate about helping young adults in areas of life transitions, relationships with self and others feel empowered and live freely and authentically. I provide culturally competent coaching with an emphasis on mental health for the Black community. I want to help you discover your purpose in life and experience healing and change that you didn’t think was possible. How do I know this is possible because I have experienced it myself. During young adulthood I was confused, misguided, and an all around hot ASS mess. I was in a constant state of anxiety because I was trying to live up to family standards or societal standards of what success and relationships should look like.
As a result I changed my major like 5 times and ended up in relationships that didn’t serve me or were beneficial to my growth. It wasn’t until I implemented the strategies that I provide in my signature framework that things started to shift for me and I began to live MY LIFE on MY TERMS and understand the true meaning of FREEDOM….experience true TRANSFORMATION….AND healed from perceived expectations and could move forward in my life doing what I loved.
I provide you with the guidance I wish I had when I ventured into adulthood.
If you have ever wanted to know what it feels like to fly, allow me to be your pilot so you can fly freely and without the weight of judgement.
Mental health is not a 'one-off' fix, but a continual launchpad for growth. After experiencing the power of these concepts for years, I've developed a framework that I'd like to share with you.

Are you experiencing
depression, anxiety disorders or other mental health issues?
Mental health coaching is different from therapy in that it's short-term, goal-focused work. Therapy is generally more intensive and long term. Therapy involves a mental health diagnosis and involves an understanding of past issues through the use of assessments, interventions, and treatment planning. Additionally, therapy focuses on identifying and reducing symptoms.
I offer both services, but I think mental health coaching may not be the best fit for you at this time. If you have been diagnosed with a mental illness, are dealing with extreme sadness and overwhelm, or healing from past trauma. Therapy would be a great resource.
