Charis Stiles, LCSW

Therapist in Berkeley, CA

Meet Charis: Hello! I’m Charis Stiles, a licensed clinical social worker. I received my undergraduate degree from New College of Florida and my graduate degree from UC Berkeley School of Social Welfare in 2010.

My Therapy Specialties in Berkeley:
I specialize in working with adults of all ages who struggle with:

  • Body image issues and eating disorders
  • Feelings of insecurity and harsh inner critics
  • Anxiety
  • Grief and life transitions

I also have a particular interest in working with those who identify as queer or LGBTQIA+, and those who deal with feeling “not good enough”.


What drew me to this work: Like most therapists, I come to this work after my own difficult experiences and I use my healing journey to inform my work with clients. I bring my creativity, my commitment to social justice, and my years of experience working in the field as a social worker and educator. I am passionate, expressive, and humorous. My work is centered in Health at Every Size (HAES), and I love helping clients feel more comfort in their own skin. I get so much joy out of helping clients feel gentler towards themselves, and I believe strongly in the power of healing relationships.

My style: Engaged, eclectic, direct, compassionate.

Services I offer: In-person individual therapy and online video counseling for residents of California.
