Hi, I'm Charisma

Holistic & Stigma-Free Perspective

In 2014, I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from St.Francis College Brooklyn, New York - it was truly a blessing. However, I knew there was more! Being a first generation Student-Athlete & graduate I felt a lot of pressure to perform and always do my best!

In 2014, I took a leap of faith by moving to Atlanta to pursue a Master's Degree in Social Work from the Whitney M. Young Jr. School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University. Like many young graduates, entering the professional world and starting a career; I felt alone although, I was surrounded by family & friends. Graduation day was gut-wrenching as I thought to myself, "Now what?"

A few months later I began working at a Behavioral Health Hospital where I found my passion through group facilitation, engaging with patients and families during family meetings, and finding appropriate resources/discharge planning. From housing, to residential treatment centers, outpatient clinics, or other behavioral health services; my desire was for every person that I encountered to feel accepted, have a deep sense of belonging, and to truly know who they are. Today I am so grateful that my passion + career collided. 

In 2021 officially I became a Licensed Social Worker and I founded Charis Counseling & Wellness, LLC.
