CHARLIE BULMAN, MPS

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor



Many of our coping skills or “go-to” behaviors develop early in life. Once we find a skill which works, we use it again and again, applying the same coping mechanism to myriad different contexts and often wind up relying upon the skill even in situations where it doesn’t work. As we continue with worn-out behaviors long after they stop delivering  relief, our thoughts similarly trod well-worn neural pathways, limiting openness and flexibility.  Charlie will work with you to identify and find solutions to the mental and physical habits which may be harming your relationships or efficacy.  


What we do matters.  Our actions construct our lives, regardless of our inner experiences. Charlie’s training is in integrated behavioral health with an emphasis on addiction and changing repetitive behaviors. Charlie will help you through:

  • Use of principles from motivational enhancement for understanding how to change.
  • Application of tools from cognitive restructuring to help you re-frame how you see your life and what the “rules” are that you feel compelled to live by.
  • Understanding and adaptation of current research and new findings from neuroscience to help you restructure your thoughts and, in so doing, change the positive functioning of your brain.
  • Teaching mindfulness and relaxation skills to enhance your ability for new thoughts,  new experiences, and new learning.


Charlie has a long history of working to improve people’s mental wellness and promote recovery and participation in community. He is experienced  in working with trauma, depressive disorders, loneliness, anxiety disorders, and behavioral issues.   Be ready to learn and grow through action!
