Charles L. Solomon II, LPC , MBA-HCA, MA-ABA, LBS, NCCIMG_7421

Throughout a lifetime, we are reminded of our own mortality by a continuous journey fraught with hurdles and complications that cause not only physical, but emotional pain as well.  Often, along that journey, we discover the desired destination is full of stressors that inhibit our strive, accomplishments, and ultimately, our very joy and sense of fulfillment.

My goal is to aid you in understanding yourself and strengthening your self awareness.  This will establish your ability to cope with and surpass life’s many obstacles via various therapeutic techniques.

I have extensive experience utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Approach, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, and Relaxation Techniques.  Each are capable of  dramatically improving quality of life while creating a safe, private environment for you to strive as we navigate this course.

I’ve also had the pleasure of counseling not only Individuals, but Families, Couples and Groups with needs as diverse as:

ADHD
Anxiety
Autism
Depression
Intellectual Development Disabled
Life Skill Strategy Development
Trauma (Physical, Emotional and Sexual)
Traumatic Brain Injury

All of which were collaborative efforts for their unique success.  When witnessing a person closing in on Self Actualization, one can take pride in knowing their services soon will no longer be needed.

My approaches include:

   Cognitive Behavior Therapy 
   Psychodynamic Therapy 
   Behavior Modification
   Rational Emotive Therapy
   Solution Focused Therapy
   Yalom’s Therapeutic Factors (Group) 
   Relaxation Therapy
