Her Story

IMG_FE60E035BE9F-1.jpeg

Charlotte is a writer, survivor, and therapist.

After fleeing California due to domestic violence, Charlotte traveled and moved around to avoid being tracked. Writing became her primary healing source as she could take a journal with her everywhere. On her journey to heal her own heart, she discovered what felt like her calling – supporting other survivors on their journey.

With over a decade of direct service work spanning from the education field to domestic violence shelter management, her expertise is working with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Charlotte went on to pursue her Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology, specializing in Psychological Trauma from Antioch University Los Angeles.

Charlotte Jarvis is fully trained in EMDR and working towards certification. In practice, she utilizes EMDR, Queer Narrative Therapy and Somatic Experiencing. Holding a strong belief that through the process of challenging one’s internal narrative, and developing the right tools to cope, quality mental health services can be a key to personal liberation.
