northwest marriage counselorDr. Charlesworth will conduct a comprehensive diagnostic interview and then work with you to suggest treatment recommendations that may include a combination of individual, family or group therapy; psychological or educational assessment; biofeedback or relaxation training and wellness and lifestyle changes. Our office is conveniently located in Northwest Houston in a setting that promotes confidentiality, relaxation and a positive attitude toward treatment as compared to the more typical office building. We have private outdoor seating for individual or group therapy.

Our biofeedback lab offers computerized biofeedback for muscle tension headaches, migraine headaches, pain disorders, bruxism, essential hypertension, hyperactivity, excessive sweating, anxiety and stress related disorders. In biofeedback training, instruments provide a person with immediate information about his or her biological condition. The individual learns to alter physiological processes while in a relaxed state. Children can also benefit from biofeedback training as they tune-in to their own bodies and learn about self-control of muscle tension, blood flow and relaxation.
     
We are pleased to work with other professionals as needed and refer to specialists to assist in both diagnostics and treatment. Since we do not prescribe medications, we can work with your family doctor, psychiatrist, internist, cardiologist, or endocrinologist.
     
Our therapy hours are flexible and evening appointments are available for client convenience. Our fees are often covered by insurance, and we participate in several managed care networks. We will help you collect your insurance claims by giving you itemized statements and filling in our portion of the necessary forms. You will receive a full receipt for each visit at the time you are in the office. We accept Master Card, Discover and Visa for your convenience.
