In certain ways your life is great; yet at the same time you feel like you're faking it and peace and contentment are forever fleeting. Are you stifled in your deepest yearnings to freely choose, be present, belong, feel, know, and grow? Charles Yin can help.
Charles Yin is a therapist, consultant, and coach with 10 years of expertise using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) modalities--including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, mindfulness-based and somatic (body) quieting/relaxation skills. Considered the "gold standard" for a variety of mental health issues, CBT effectively treats myriad health problems (both mental and physical suffering).
His specialities are:
Stress and Coping Skills
Positive Psychology (Flow/Gratitude)
Grit, Resilience and Mindset
Mindfulness and Mental Health
He considers it an honor collaborating with his clients, tailoring effective and proven tools to create greater meaning, feeling, fullness, and joy in their lives.
Charles's therapeutic approach is nuanced and holistic. He considers all facets of a person (thoughts, feelings, relationships, spirituality and meaning-making, physical health) in catering the counseling to what best suits that individual– there is no one size fits all approach. Helping others successfully manage difficult life situations, gain insight, grow and thrive beyond the situation energizes Charles. He uses compassion, respect, humor and authenticity to foster an empowering environment encouraging people to maximize themselves, developing resiliency in the process.
