Here at the Delta Discovery Center, a health and wellness center on Hilton Head Island, we have created a truly holistic set of services and treatments to help people with stress and anxiety along with the resulting state of dis-ease that often accompanies these chronic experiences. We don’t recommend putting a Band-Aid on the condition. Rather, we seek to find the root cause and ways to heal it.
You’ll hear us use the term ‘self-care’ a lot. That’s what we promote here … specifically for those who are dealing with stress and anxiety.
This self-care extends to the body, mind, and spirit. When we speak of holistic self-care, for us, that means that we understand that we can’t just address physical issues. We can’t just address mental issues. And, we can’t just address issues from a spiritual perspective. We look at the ‘big picture’ and identify the important components of what amounts to wellness.
The Delta Discovery Center is designed to meet you where you are. You can choose from our menu of services to work on the issues that are causing your anxiety and stress.
We’ve created a place for you to plug in … plug in to unplug. We know your time is precious and we honor your commitment to taking care of yourself. In as little as an hour, you can be feeling significant improvement. Whether it’s a class, a treatment, or any of the many other ways we’ve created for you to set aside a bit of time for self-care, you’ll be glad you did!
Charlie Frangos, LPC, CSAT – Co-Founder Delta Discovery Center
Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, Trauma Recovery Specialist
“I work with people who are stuck and want to get ‘unstuck’.”
Trauma and sex addiction often go hand in hand. And where there is sex addiction, there are family members that are also likely to be traumatized. This can have everyone involved feeling stuck and confused.
As a long-time recovered sex addict, I know what’s required to heal the wounds that fuel (and result from) the addiction. In my work as a counselor at an in-patient treatment center, it became clear that most addictions follow a similar pattern. So, my work with addiction includes all substance and/or behavior issues.
Some of the training and certifications that I hold include:
- Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) specializing in healing addiction and trauma.
- Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) specializing in hypnotherapy and counseling skills to heal trauma.
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) specializing in healing traumas and building resilience to deal with everyday life.
- Neurofeedback using ultra low frequency helping with trauma, addiction, anxiety and obsessive thinking (www.eeginfo.com).
In our counseling sessions, I draw from these and other processes to help clients get “unstuck.” My role is to help clients engage their inner healer. It is an honor to see people find their own path of recovery.
Understanding addiction and trauma is key to healing. My wife, Dr. Gala Gorman, and I co-authored books and developed an online program for family members of addicts.

“It’s the business of your life and you’re the CEO.”
When you become a patient, your symptoms will be examined through the lens of overall health and the goal of a full recovery. We believe that progress has to be sustained to be of much value!
It can be frustrating to start over on a health journey you’ve been on for months, or even years. However, to get the full picture and to find the missing link, every piece of the puzzle must be considered. We’re on a journey to discover what happened that lead to this point and life experience.
Your body has taken many hits over the years. Even those that lead an incredibly healthy life are not exempt. While it’s different for everyone, for many people toxins accumulate over time that develop into some chronic condition.
We ask questions and conduct tests that are designed to reveal the root cause. This is done with holistic curiosity.
“The question is the answer.” If you ask the right question, the answer leads to the desired result.
My qualifications include:
- NCCAOM Board Certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine
- Licensed Acupuncturist (South Carolina and Florida)
- Doctor of Naturopathy specializing in reversing autoimmune disorders.
- Specialized training and certification in the use of Frequency Specific Microcurrent and ElectroAcupuncture Medicine to treat issues related to insufficient or malfunctioning bioelectricity.
- Author of the Spiritual Approach Series™ of books focused on practical spirituality.
- Doctoral Ministerial Specialty Degree in Holistic Life Coaching specializing in igniting intentional change.
- BioEnergetic Assessment Technician Certification to evaluate the body’s energy system and bring balance to areas of dis-resonance.
- Certified Public Accountant (licensed but not practicing) for over 30 years bringing a ‘bottom-line improvement’ approach to holistic health.
If you want to be an active participant in your own healing process and are looking for treatment that will provide the support you need, acupuncture is a great option. By educating clients about their health issues, health care options, and lifestyle choices, I help them become their own health advocate.
With acupuncture you’re supporting your body’s own self-healing response. The body wants to repair itself. It’s always healing and regenerating. Always! So, as we stimulate the energy system in the body, we’re guiding and suggesting … giving little nudges … to reboot the brain.
“This is how it’s done! Remember? This is how my body is supposed to function.”
Your body is not supposed to be in constant pain or stress. We’re not genetically designed to live that way. We’re designed for holistic health.
It’s important to understand that your health condition didn’t happen overnight and you will need support and treatment over a period of time to reinforce your body’s healing response.
Multiple treatments that are received closer together are more effective. Even if you’re just visiting Hilton Head for a short period of time, you can benefit from having several sessions during your stay.
