Char is an adjunct faculty member of IPS and an Illinois licensed Clinical Psychologist. She has maintained a clinical practice with adult individuals and couples in Aurora, Illinois since 1986.

Char trained for two years at the Family Institute of Northwestern University and did her clinical internship at Cook County Hospital. Char is part of the spiritual formation teaching team in her faith community. Her passion in ministry, relative both to her clinical work as well as her participation in her faith community, is focused on clarifying and articulating the nuances of healthy spiritual and relational connections that facilitate transformation and healing across one’s life cycle.
