It Takes a Village: Charles Thomas, Renaissance Man

Charles Thomas

Where would Watershed Voice be without Charles Thomas? The definition of a 21st century renaissance man, Charles is a licensed psychotherapist, a published author, a columnist for not one but two local publications, a member of our board of directors, and a loving husband and father. The guy has it all, and we’re lucky he’s on our team.

Full Name: Charles D. Thomas

Occupation: Psychotherapist 

Your connection to the City of Three Rivers and/or St. Joseph County (Including how long you’ve lived or previously lived here): While I currently live in Portage, I lived in Three Rivers for 12 years, and my daughter is a former student of the Three Rivers Public Schools.  TR will always have a special place in my heart and I have many happy memories of my time there.

Tell us a little bit about yourself: I work as a mental health professional and write for Watershed Voice and the Three Rivers Commercial-News. I have a daughter who has also written for WV. In addition to serving on the board of the Watershed Voice, I also serve on the board of the Portage Parks Foundation and own a small psychotherapy practice.   

Why is this project important to you: Watershed Voice is an important part of the Three Rivers community.  It provides a voice to those who would not otherwise have one in addition to providing local news and information. Watershed Voice is also a place for local artists to share their work. There isn’t another publication like it in the entire region and I’m proud to be a part of it.
