Charis work with clients who want to improve their mental health, build and strengthen healthy relationships, process and overcome obstacles in their life, and learn about themselves on a deeper level so that they can live their best lives. Issues her clients can address include depression, anxiety, trauma, mood instability, family or relational conflicts, considering career options, questions about parenting, exploring identity, culture, or overcoming societal barriers and oppression.
