I’m Char, Mental Health & Trauma Coach. I help people take control of their lives to find the peace, balance, and happiness they are craving. After 30 years in the healthcare field and 25 years of nursing service, I am now dedicated to teaching people how to overcome mental barriers that keep them from achieving life goals. I coach individuals to mend their minds to change their lives and through evidence-based coaching strategies help them produce personal and professional results beyond anything they dared to dream of before.
My personal mental health story began at the ripe old age of 15 when I became an EMT for a local volunteer ambulance service. I experienced a critical incident that triggered a severe episode of PTSD with a side of major depression & anxiety. Mind you, mental health was not really talked about back in the early 90’s. I was blessed to have a mentor that recognized my symptoms and took steps to get me the help I needed.
Fast forward several decades, many years of formal education, respective fancy degrees & certifications, 25 years of nursing experience across the entire healthcare spectrum, a husband, 3 kids, and many more opportunities for life to challenge my personal mental health and I arrive where I am today. A passionate advocate for those who experience anxiety, depression, ADHD and PTSD. It is my mission to stop the stigma of mental health, help heal those living with it and offer compassionate support to every person who is ‘stuck’. Life is too short to not go after your dreams!
