I’m passionate about working with clients in both individual and in group settings. I specialize in dual diagnosis treatments and educate using the CBT and DBT skills.

Born and raised in the Nashville area, he has been actively involved in the recovery community for over a decade, and understands the importance of empathy and compassion towards people seeking recovery.–
The best way to describe Charlie is to say, he is relationship driven. Charlie believes everything in life is about relationship. We all have a relationship with ourselves, the question is, are we aware of it? We are always interacting in some kind of relationship, whether it be with our families, social life, ourselves, who we work with and how we spend our resources.
We areall in a spiritual relationship and that is a personal journey of discovery for every person. Charliealso believes the only thing that exists outside of a relationship is isolation and dis/ease, or the lack of peace and contentment. As a therapist helping others discover what their relationship with themselves and others looks like, and how they want to improve those relationships is the main objective.
Charlie has been in recovery for over 20 years and have discovered that without a good value system to guide his own recovery, it is very difficult to maintain long term sobriety. Mr. Clemence has a degree in the field of psychology and is certified in dialectical behavior skills.
Charlie feels strongly that if someone is motivated to improve their life, they can and will if, they are able to discover a system of values and a community of relationships that will encourage them to continue in their journey.
Charlie been a musician most for most of his life and uses music as a way to help communicate the message of recovery and to encourage the people that he works with, to not give up on themselves. Charlie believes that recovery is about learning growing and practicing. Charlie is quoted as saying “I have spent much of my life in the outdoors and as an outdoorsman, I believe in being creative to help my clients use different adventure types of experiences to help them discover metaphors for their recovery, that will give them lasting memories.”
“It’s not about the destination, although the destination is important, it is really about the journey. Because the journey teaches us how to find contentment in every trial through every relationship.”
