About Charlotte

Welcome, seeker. You’re home. I’m Charlotte, a Trauma Psychotherapist, Astrologer, and Psycho-Spiritual writer. Aka the voice you’ve been reading this entire time.

I founded Typically Topical as a creative outlet for the musings of my work. As a Trauma Psychotherapist, I frequently found myself delving deep into all sorts of topics including shadow work, inner child healing, and behavioral psychology as a way to aid my clients’ healing journey.

I quickly discovered many aspects of psychology and spirituality complemented each other. Both fields could help add depth to our complex feelings, thoughts, and emotions, and could help us to express those bigger-picture visions.

As a lifelong believer in the spiritual world, I decided to blend my two passions together, drawing on both the grounded and practical nature of psychology and science as well as the metaphysical nature of spirituality.

That was 3 years ago. Since then, Typically Topical has grown into an award-winning resource with over 300,000 visitors every month.

About Typically Topical

Typically Topical is an award-winning spiritual wellness brand inspiring radical life change through spirituality, angel numbers, astrology, tarot, and more.

My aim is to help you ignite your true purpose, power, and potential and explore what it means to be human through conscious living, healing, and positive encouragement. In a way that will actually get you results.

When it comes to the content I share, my goal is to provide a grounded and balanced perspective of spirituality that doesn’t completely bypass the raw, messy, and chaotic nature of personal and psychological growth.

There’s a tendency in the spiritual world to only want to cling to the light, but no one’s life is only ever shaped by the light.

No matter what has happened in your past, I encourage you to see that you are the creator of your destiny, that you are the master builder, the visionary, the dream weaver, the artist, and that at any point you can choose to spin a new narrative. At any moment you can become the alchemist who uses the dark to their advantage to push through to the light.

From a psychological perspective, Charlotte holds a Master’s Degree in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy from Yale University which she attended on a merit scholarship basis, without which wouldn’t have been possible.

Editorial Policy (A Note on Quality)

I only ever publish original and quality writing. Many sites out there tend to respin work they find on other blogs, unfortunately resulting in a long chain of copycat content.

Let’s face it, you didn’t click just to read the same thing.

As the foundation for all published blogs, I spend lots of time combing through expert sources, such as scientific studies, research (where applicable), and peer-reviewed articles to find up-to-date and vetted information. No cookie-cutter approach here.
