About me

Since entering this field in 2007, I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, addictions, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. Currently, I hold a credential as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I really just want to be a part of the solution. I seek to help my clients develop their definition of success and begin working toward it. I bring enthusiasm, professionalism, and unconditional positive regard to the treatment setting so I can help my clients build confidence in exploring their feelings and fearlessly divorce behaviors that compromise a healthy lifestyle. My intention is to empower them to examine their truths from different perspectives and to challenge their own perceptions. I have worked with adolescents and adults in residential, inpatient, and outpatient settings.

I earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Social Work in 2011 from Slippery Rock University and I obtained a Master’s of Science degree in Counseling Psychology in 2016 from Chatham University in Pittsburgh. My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectic, humanistic therapies. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I believe in the client-centered and meeting clients where they are. Without client input, the treatment planning process is ineffective.

Whatever your challenge, you didn't arrive at this space overnight, and regardless of how you arrived here, together, we can skillfully develop an effective solution to improve your quality of life. I look forward to working with you!

Ms. Cheryl has been great. She’s been helpful sending worksheets and communications through video sessions and text messages. I look forward to growing within myself and all the many hats that I wear in life. Thanks a million already!!!

Cheryl is absolutely amazing and is the reason why I have stuck with going to therapy.

I've seen Cheryl for almost a year now and in that time she has been an invaluable resource for me. Cheryl has helped me identify goals and potential solutions to the problems that I have faced. I feel Cheryl has assisted me in fostering deep meaningful change in my life and emotional well-being. Cheryl's depth of skill and experience is evident in how supported I feel after a session with her.

Only one session in with Cheryl Coney and I knew immediately I was going to get the help I needed. Easy to talk to, relatable, best experience with therapy I've ever had so wanted to put in a good word for her.
