"The world is full of suffering, but the world is also full of the overcoming of suffering."  This is one of my favorite quotes from Helen Keller.
My name is Charles Allen, and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida.  I am also an active Christian in my church.  I find that the Bible and prayer are very powerful resources in well-being and in over-coming any problem that we may face.  My view of life is that it is a journey toward the heights of well-being.  It is true that this journey will include times of stress, conflict, despair, and various problems, but we can overcome those problems with the help of our faith, our family, and counselors such as myself.  I would love to be on your journey to well-being with you!
Counseling is an active process of change.  It is sometimes a struggle and usually gradual as a life-changing experience.  I will be there with you to develop five life tasks:  Spirituality, Self-Direction, Work and Leisure, Friendship, and Love.  This journey to well-being becomes a way of life in which body, mind, and spirit are integrated for you to live more fully.
Life is not always easy.  Sometimes we need a little bit of help to work through some of the more challenging problems that come our way.  We all have hurdles to overcome at some point.  Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, or any other mental health issue, you should know that there is hope for a better tomorrow. 
My approach is to provide a safe and supportive environment for you understand your values and treatment preferences through self-care planning and activities.  Discovering your signature strengths and abilities will also provide you with tools for coping with challenges and setting goals for growth.  The healthy life will include connectedness, hope and optimism, a positive self identity, new meaning and purpose in  life, and empowerment to have control over your life and fulfill personal responsibilities.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about my counseling philosophy and approach.  I think that Psalm 23 from the Bible will sum up the security we have with God as our Good Shepherd.  He provides all that we need.  He makes us to lie down in green pastures and leads us beside the still waters.  He restores our soul.  Surely goodness and mercy shall overtake us all the days of your life.  I look forward to working with you soon!
