Charlotte's kind and approachable demeanour make her a hot commodity in the mental health world. A woman who believes that there is good in everyone, Charlotte uses her lived experience raising resilient daughters to bring awareness and support to families living with mental health issues.
As a solution-focused coach, Charlotte works with parents of children struggling with mental health challenges as well as addiction to support, advocate and provide strategies for success and recovery. She talks about the parallel process: when one member of the family is struggling, it affects everyone in the family. To Charlotte, family means whatever family means to them. It is not always family of origin.
Her work in mental health has been recognized with the Heroes of Mental Health award by CMHA as well as hundreds of "thank-yous" from families around the world. Her education, coupled with her track record of helping families find the resources they need, has given her the street cred needed to make a difference.
Charlotte believes wholeheartedly in Family Peer Support and its role in Mental Wellness. It was a huge part of her family's mental health story, and she hopes that others will see the power in their story as well.
When Charlotte is not working, she can be found hiking with her Goldendoodle, Archie, as well as spending time with her partner, Doug and her two daughters.
