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.
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. He has a degree in the field of psychology and is certified in dialectical behavior skills.
