Charlie Smerz, MSW, LCSW

Sometimes, people are like volcanos.  When the pressure builds up, they eventually erupt.  It helps to vent.  Charlie is a child and adult therapist with four years of clinical experience working with clients.  Prior to joining River Birch Counseling, he worked with teens and adults in crisis on a hospital inpatient unit, as well as in schools and the community as a crisis outpatient counselor.  He specializes in depression, self-esteem, anxiety, grief, and family conflict.  He especially likes helping people discover and build their inner strength to overcome life’s many challenges. When Charlie’s not at work, he revels in playing guitar, getting in a round of disc golf, and playing the Settlers of Catan board game with friends.
