About Me

Hello.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and a Certified Biblical Counselor. I have a passion to help individuals and couples find their way to wholeness and good mental health. I have over 8 years of experience working in the mental health industry. I earned a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling Psychology.

There comes a time in everyone’s life when they really need someone safe to talk to. They need someone who will not use their pain against them. So often they end up holding that pain inside, masking it with a smile or adherent behavior. I can provide a safe place for you to empty your pain and take off the mask so that your quality of life can improve.

Every client needs something different; I use various evidence-based approaches that will fit my client’s needs. I am skilled in cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic, mindfulness, solution focused therapy, narrative therapy, positive therapy, and biblical counseling. I will utilize my skills to treat and support clients with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, family conflict, and grief. I also help clients who are experiencing challenging interpersonal relationships, shame, and guilt by improving communication skills, setting boundaries, and understanding the power of “no”. I walk with my clients through the gardens of their lives and help them identify any unwanted weeds and uproot them, so that they can regain their voice and move forward.

I enjoy working with adults, couples, and families to resolve their issues through a client centered approach offering empathy and a non-judgmental environment to support clients in establishing their goals so that they can identify and develop their inner strengths.

If you are ready to do the work, I am ready to support you to be the person you desire to be. I’m looking forward to working with you.

I've been meeting with Cheryl for about a month and she is truly a blessing and couldn't have come into my life at a better time. I know I have a lot to work on and a long road ahead of me to fully experience healing, but she is constantly giving me the tools and motiviation to do so. I'm excited to get to a better place in my life so that I can be a productive, strong woman and love myself and also be a better mother/daughter/parnter/friend/employee etc.

I love Miss Cheryl! She’s amazing and dives right into the hard stuff. She’s like a friend you’ve known forever with amazing Godly council. My “Garden” in life is already looking better with some weeds gone!

If you got this far to read this review..you probably do need therapy lol BUT IT’S OKAY! We all do and it truly is a game changer. Not only is Cheryl bubbly and refreshing, she’s also thoughtful, wise, full of faith and attentive. She makes me feel comfortable and seen and calls out the root of my issues or discomforts clearly and lovingly. If I could invite her to thanksgiving dinner, I would. Cheryl is lit.

I graduated today! Cheryl Williams is an amazing therapist, prayer, coach, and confidant! She has made me aware of and courageous to use the strengths that I already knew I had! Cheryl has helped me heal in areas that I was afraid to address and kindly talked some sense into me. She always made me feel heard and I especially appreciate how she held the space for me to just talk some things out.

Written by R.I. on Oct 08, 2020 after therapy with Cheryl for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and anger management

Right from the start, I knew Cheryl was going to be a great therapist for me. I appreciate her willingness to really get down in the dirt with you, in the place where you are experiencing the most trouble. She surely helped me out of the mess I was in and gave me a fresh perspective of myself and tools to help combat the issues I was dealing with. She’s amazing and I will forever be grateful for her help!

Cheryl is a blessing! She is insightful, extremely responsive, and guides me to make the best decisions for my life. I have made so much progress in learning how to love myself, forgive myself, and communicate effectively. I could not have made this much progress without her: she is the most efficient therapist I’ve ever had!

Written by S.I. on Sep 18, 2020 after therapy with Cheryl for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, parenting issues, and coping with life changes

Cheryl was truly a God send. I prayed over a counselor to be sent me that would be a good fit for me and Cheryl fit the bill perfectly. She was readily available to offer a listening ear and support and always directed me back to scripture. She really helped me stay on track with my goals of establishing and keeping my boundaries with my soon to be ex. Thank you Cheryl so much for your time and patience. I appreciate you so much.

Cheryl is wonderful. I am usually one to keep things to myself and not easily open up to people. Within the first conversation with Cheryl, I found myself opening up to her as if I've known her for years. She's extremely personable. I love that she ties our conversations to scriptures and prays for me at the end of every session. Thankful to have been matched with her!
