Chuck loves working in the “Counseling Intensive” format where he meets with individuals or couples for a 1 or 2 day Counseling Intensive. This is due to the tremendous amount of progress that takes place in a very short period of time. Chuck says, “It is so awesome to be able to see people receive freedom in just one day…seeing all the years of baggage totally disappear in just 1 or 2 days is a feeling that almost cannot be explained!” The Local Intensives are done in Lynchburg, and Chuck can also provide a Mobile Intensive where he drives or flies to your area as well.
He has completed Level I and Level II Relationship Training with John and Julia Gottman of the Gottman Institute and he has completed both Level I and Level II Divorce Busting training with Michelle Weiner Davis in Boulder, Colorado. She invited Chuck to be part of her team but he declined in order to increase his focus on the “Counseling Intensives” work with individuals and couples through the Wyndhurst Counseling Center.
He has been married to his wonderful wife, Kim, for more than 33 years and they have a son, Sam, who is in college. Chuck, Kim, and Sam enjoy eating take out from King’s Island and watching Elementary on Sundays afternoon. This has been a great tradition for them.
