About Me

Hello, my name is Charles Goodson. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of South Carolina with over 19 years of counseling experience. Throughout my career I have worked with adolescents, families, at risk youth, and individuals struggling with mental illness. I have helped a diverse array of clients dealing with concerns such as: stress and anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, family conflict, grief and loss, and anger management. I am also a Christian Counselor with a passion for helping couples and families, and I am well versed in scripture.
I believe that everyone is endowed with innate strengths to help us through our life struggles. As a counselor it is my job to come along side of each client, and help them to discover their own path to utilizing those strengths . I am eager to listen to you, and assist you in finding a plan that is structured to fit your own personal needs. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, family systems, narrative, and solution focused therapies, and is designed to create an alliance of mutual trust wherein you and I can strive together to successfully navigate the obstacles that you face .
I know it takes courage to make changes in your life, and it is even harder to ask for help. When you are willing to take that step, I am here to help you in your journey.
Remember," Different isn't always better, but better is always different."
