I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, who has experience working with both individuals and couples. I utilize an integrative approach to therapy by drawing on training and clinical experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Attachment Theory and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT). My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, self-esteem, relationship issues, communication, affairs, pornography, trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, sexual trauma and pregnancy related issues.
I am passionate about working with individuals, couples and families. I believe that providing clients with a safe, secure and empathetic environment is the first step in the healing process. I aim to help individual clients work though their challenges in ways that create new and positive experiences that lead to real change and wholeness in their lives. As a marriage therapist, I look to support couples in improving communication, reestablishing respect, restoring trust and strengthening their connection as a couple.
I hold a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Mental Health from Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio, where I also enjoyed studying Theology. I take pride in being a counselor because I enjoy engaging people to discover their strengths while also empowering them to live their life with passion and purpose.

Cherie is fantastic at listening to my needs and helping me.
Cherie really helped me a lot, she is always ready to listen and understand. I was feeling sad about lots of things, now I feel much better. She is always listening and giving good advice.
She excellent. Not only does she help me gain insight, but she regularly checks in on me, especially if I've been MIA for a few days, and that really means a lot to know that she is still there.
I really like communicating with Cherie. She understands, helps me to reflect on what's going on. Thanks
She’s amazing! If I ever quit and come back again, I would always pick her because he understands what I’m feeling.
Cherie has been a wonderful supportive counselor. She was willing to provide proactive advice and offer a very healthy perspective on numerous situations that was going on in my life. She was quick to respond to any messages I sent her and gave a thorough response that went beyond my exspectations. I have so much graditute towards her and thankful that she has helped with changing my life for the better. Thank you so much Cherie!
I love that Cherie is so understanding. She truly seems considerate and wants to help me with my anxiety. I love having a therapist that cares about my well being. Thank you so much!
Charlie had been incredible! She has gotten me through the hardest time in my life and helped me gain confidence along the way :)
Cherie has gently helped me to overcome a lot and work successfully towards goals and a fulfilling direction in my life.
Having never done any sort of counseling or therapy I was really nervous going in to this. I was pleasantly surprised to find I felt comfortable with Cherie's approach immediately. While we haven't had any verbal contact, her message responses are very prompt and supportive. I've felt zero pressure to discuss anything I'm not comfortable with which has helped me open up more than I ever have before.
After a few weeks of treatment with Cherie I find myself feeling less like I'm hopeless and helpless and more like I might have hope for myself and my future. I would highly recommend her service to others.
Cherie is great, kind, patient and caring!
Cherie does a great job getting to the heart of an issue. She provides great counseling, and recommendations or strategies to improve my situation.
I reside in a small rural community and confidentiality is essential. The freedom to be engaged in a safe, productive counseling activity is amazing. Cherie, has responded to me on evening and weekends with kindness and thoughtful homework assignments. I am grateful to her.
