There was an immediate connection with Cherilyn. She engenders a safe and warm space to dialogue, and offers concise and direct insight. I never feel judged or criticized, only seen and heard, as I slowly realize truths. Sometimes, I wish she would just tell me A, B, and C, versus me having to endure the trauma of arriving at the source of my own foible - which is often me.

She is very kind, warm hearted and considerate. I got a lot of help from her to get through my stress and anxiety. She was a great listener and a good advisor. I wish her the best!
