Are You Faking It On The Outside,
But Dying on the Inside? Counseling Can Help.
People looking at you from the outside might think you have it all… a family, a home, a career, and yet on the inside you are dying a slow death. If anyone really knew you they would see that you are “completely faking it.” Your sex life is lifeless; you hate your job; so you isolate, watch too much TV, look at porn and drink more than you should. Perhaps you have even have had an affair (or just thought about it). You do whatever it takes to distract you from that inner-pain because at a core level, you are terrified of being found out….So you just go on pretending like everything is just fine…until you explode. If this is you, counseling can help.
If this sounds like you, guess what? You’re not alone, and there is hope. It is possible to become a better person, a better parent, and to like even who you see in the mirror.
Hi, my name is Chuck Chapman. I am a counselor working with people just like you in Portland Oregon and the surrounding areas. I work with men and women, helping them find ways to shed the guilt and shame and overcome feelings of anxiety and depression that is holding them back.
But finding the right counselor is important; seeing a counselor can feel daunting because exposed emotions can be painful. We work together to create a safe space where you can share what’s going on without feeling judged or shamed. We collaborate to develop a plan that works for you. Whether you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, grief, addiction or communicating with your partner, seeing a counselor can be a powerful way to explore and find solutions for overcoming barriers that keep you stuck. I’m passionate about what I do because seeing people grow, change and live from a place of authenticity is amazingly gratifying. My hope is that you walk away from the counseling experience with tools that will help you have a better life.
My sole purpose and hopeful intentions in counseling are to contribute toward helping people live better lives.

I am a licensed professional counselor who serves Portland and the surrounding areas. I wasn’t always a counselor. In fact several years ago I found myself in a dark place full of pain. I had built a house of cards that quickly fell apart and when I looked in the mirror I loathed the guy looking back at me. I was hiding my true self from the people who love me, I felt alone, I felt afraid, and I felt like a fake.
Through my own therapy and recovery, I found there were reasons behind my behaviors. I learned ways to overcome my character flaws, and slowly I began to forgive myself and even came to the point where I liked who I had become. This experience was a gift and I dedicated myself to helping others and passing that gift on. My hopeful intent is to help people find freedom from guilt and shame and live from a place of authenticity and truth.
Today my life is amazing! I found the love and acceptance that I had longed for all my life. I am truly grateful to be living my dream and hope to help others come to the same place.
