Charmagne Westcott, LPC, NCC

You may appear "fine" to those around you, but inside your emotions are intense and out of control. You feel disconnected from your friends, your family and your life. It's overwhelming and you wonder how you got to this place. You desperately want to just, "let it go," but you don't know how. 

It IS possible to feel hopeful about your future again - to find a place of acceptance within yourself and the world around you. I know it's possible because I've witnessed it with my clients and I've experienced it myself. It's time for the suffering to end. I can help.
I've specialized in treating clients with intense emotional dysregulation for over a decade. I’ve witnessed clients who are chronically suicidal, multidiagnostic or otherwise labeled, “difficult to treat,” learn to gain control over their thoughts, behaviors and intense emotional reactions and go on to rebuild their relationships and reconnect with the world. 

For the past 17 years I have had the opportunity to treat a diverse group of individuals - from those who are seeking brief psychotherapy, to those who are seriously and persistently mentally ill - in a wide variety of settings including crisis clinics, emergency rooms, community mental health centers, psychiatric hospitals and correctional environments (minimum to maximum security prisons). 

I am open about my own personal history because I believe we are all in this together. Humor has been an effective coping skill in my own life and I actively (and appropriately) apply humor throughout the therapeutic process. I feel honored whenever a client feels safe enough to share a personal struggle with me. I get as much out of this as my clients do. Every day I witness people take a new step toward a life that is worth living, some of them for the first time. I am grateful to be a part of it.
