Charlie has been in the human services field for over 30 years. Beginning as a State
Probation-Parole Officer in North Carolina he became interested in the etiology of
maladaptive and anti-social adolescent behavior and the role that family dynamics and
parenting has on that development. He received a Masters Degree in Counseling from
Western Carolina University and moved to Atlanta in 1980. Charlie spent 18 years working
with adolescents in residential treatment and was, for 8 years, the Executive Director of
The Village of St. Joseph, a residential center operated by Catholic Charities and the
Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta. Charlie has recently retired from Catholic Charities, after
27 years, and continues to focus on his private practice which he has done for 11 years.
Having grown up in a dynamic, loving and well structured family system has set a strong
foundation for Charlie's work with teenagers and their parents. Charlie's approach to his
work with adolescents and their families is focused, long term, on the concept that
adolescents will be the parents of tomorrow and the experience they derive from their own
upbringing will be the primary template for raising their own families.
