About Me

I consider it a sacred honor and privilege to walk with people through life difficulties, identify strengths and find solutions, all through a caring and supportive relationship.

My work experience started with military service. I have 15 years’ experience teaching college psychology courses, all while helping individuals achieve life goals as a life coach. The past four years have been most satisfying career years as I transitioned to full time counseling.

I earned a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology in 2009. I also have certificates in family systems dynamics, life-coaching, and I am a nationally certified diabetes coach and trained in EMDR therapy. My counseling style interweaves wellness, solution focused, acceptance and commitment, and cognitive behavioral therapy. I’ve worked extensively with individuals through various levels of mental illness, families, and couples.

he has a very good balance of professional and fun. He wasted no time in trying to come up with ways to help me achieve my mental health goals. He is also very patient with how scatterbrained I am! :)

I really appreciate his care in listening to whatever is on my mind, his ability to ask me questions that apply to my situation helps me to process my spiritual life with the events happening around me, and helps me vet out my thoughts and clarify things. I also value and appreciate him praying with me afterwards!

Dr. Sperry was extremely professional and courteous. As it turns out, he had personal experience with my dilemma, so his observations and suggestions were very appreciated...and successful! He's a great guy to talk to and very calming.
