Charlie says he gained his greatest fulfillment as a counselor in running a long-term men’s therapy group, Transitions, a program based on the assumption that change is what happens to us and transitions are how we handle change. He states that he repeatedly watched men grow into more accountable, compassionate persons who learned to develop more honest and intimate relationships.
Charlie is a co-author of Stop Hurting the Woman You Love: Breaking the Cycle of Abusive Behavior. He has presented on approaches to therapy with men in numerous settings, and has assembled manuals and worksheets for treatment providers in their work with court-referred clients and substance abuse.
Charlie practices in Petoskey, Michigan. There, he conducts phone counseling, facilitates a men’s group, and sees clients at the The Men’s Counseling Center of Northern Michigan.
