We are here for people like you and me. We know there is really nothing "wrong" with any of us, but there are ways that we all struggle with living the fullest life we can. We provide you with mind-body centered counseling, coaching, and psychotherapy for all life and career concerns; guiding you through self discovery and empowerment coaching you to improve your relationship with the world.
We work with individual adults and couples from the late teens into elderhood meeting you where you are, guiding you on your journey back to wholeness and happiness. We all have different obstacles to this, sometimes just feeling like something is off, or not as good as it could be. Sometimes we think we have a label for it, like stress, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, identity questions, relationship or marriage problems, addictions, compulsions, disconnect from our emotions, anger, self-image, our careers, feeling stuck in a rut, the list is endless. But these are just labels for normal life experiences that keep us from feeling, experiencing, and expressing our complete and whole self. We help people break free of their labels, not be defined by them.
Our approach to counseling is mindfulness based, experiential, present moment, positive, and compassionate, helping you explore and discover the parts of you that are in the way of you seeing and being who you really are. We don't just talk. You could talk to anybody for free. Rather we guide you to be aware of and experience what is already happening inside you, which is much more effective than just talking about problems. Chuck has extensive training as a therapist in the Hakomi Method of Experiential Psychotherapy, which has prepared him well to take you beyond talk deeper into your heart, body, and mind - deeper into fully knowing yourself. Our experience and methods will help you navigate a wide variety of life and career challenges helping you discover and transform your deeply held self-limiting core beliefs, which creates more complete and lasting change.
We all have varying levels of suffering which can be caused by life events such as transitions or relationships or just a desire for your life to be different. Most of us try to work through this on our own. We don't need to wait until it is overbearing to benefit from a little help though counseling or therapy. We will meet you where you are and help you to grow into the life you know you can be living.
Call or email us today for a free consultation so we discuss how we can
best work together to improve your life.
Why Inner Life Adventures?
You may be thinking, "Inner Life Adventures seems like an unusual name for a counseling/therapy practice." Well, you are right. We are a different kind of practice. First the most unusual part Adventures shows how we look at everything from a positive viewpoint. The journey of counseling how we approach it - seeing it as self exploration and growth - is an adventure, not a problem or burden. Inner Life comes from our focus on mindfulness and study of our internal world. When we are paying attention to our inner life throughout our day, we become aware of so much happening that it really is an adventure! A lot could be said about what our name represents, but I'll leave it at that for now. And I invite you to embark on your own Inner Life Adventure. Every adventure worth pursuing is made easier with a guide or facilitator. When you are ready for one, we'll be here for you.

At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.

"Pain is not wrong. Reacting to pain as wrong initiates the trance of unworthiness. The moment we believe something is wrong, our world shrinks & we lose ourselves in the effort to combat the pain." - Tara Brach
