About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor licensed in Florida with over 13 years of experience working as a mental health therapist. I have worked with civilians, Veterans, and active-duty military personnel with a wide range of concerns including posttraumatic stress, depression, anxiety, stress, relationships issues, career challenges, social isolation, and anger. As a Navy Veteran, I also help people who have experienced combat trauma.

My counseling style is empathetic and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with kindness, respect, sensitivity, and I don’t believe in stigmatizing. My approach is a combination of cognitive behavioral, humanistic, interpersonal, and supportive. I will tailor our dialog and we will tailor your treatment plan to meet your specific needs as there is no one size fits all for counseling.

You are very brave for being here and taking the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take it a step further, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

It’s been really beneficial to work with Cheryl in the past several months. I see a drastic difference in my thought processing and the way I react to situations that are difficult or unpleasant. Thank you so much for helping me out!

She is great! No judgement and understands where you are coming from! Couldn’t be more happy with the time I spent talking with her. She got me through a really tough time and I could not be more grateful!

Cheryl is a wonderful therapist. She’s helping me work through specific issues, which we remain focused on throughout the sessions. She is supportive while at the same time holding me accountable to my own actions and words. Highly recommendable.

Cheryl is great! This is my first time with a mental health specialist and she has made it easy to share my thoughts in a safe space. I can thank her enough for being my voice of reason when I need redirecting or reassurance.

I am extremely happy that I have had the opportunity to have Cheryl Parker as my therapist. She is completely professional and I feel she offers me a safe and understanding platform to voice myself. I would not hesitate to recommend her, in fact I already have.

I've been trying to become consistent with mental health appointments but in all honesty, it's been a struggle. While I have had a good therapist before, I havent shared all of my feelings. This time I decided to try an audio only session to see if that helped and that, along with her professionalism and care, I was able to feel comfortable in the first visit. I look forward to learning and growing with her.
