About me

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years of experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I have worked with clients dealing with a wide range of concerns including spiritual issues, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, stress, career challenges, and divorce recovery. I have also done a lot of premarital work, communication training and have counseled women struggling with eating disorders.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is eclectic and includes cognitive-behavioral, paradoxical, empathic listening and family of origin work. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs, working to find a pace that both challenges you to reach the goals you desire to achieve, while also helping you to feel heard, understood and as comfortable as possible.

It takes a great deal of courage to reach out for help in order to have a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take those steps, I am excited to help support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I've been with Cheryl for about 10 months now, and wow. She has helped me through so much that I never thought I would encounter. It's been so calming knowing I can go to her for any issue I'm having. She helps me think clearly and gives the best advice. I really feel like Cheryl listens and cares about me. Between sessions, she periodically reaches out to check in as well. Overall, a very loving, caring, and gentle person. Highly recommend Cheryl.
