Sheri Fay, LMFT, LPC
I am a Dually Licensed Mental Health Therapist with a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology. I have been seeing clients with a wide range of concerns in a variety of treatment settings since 1996. I use a trauma informed and solutions focused style of therapy meaning that I take into account the whole person and their life experiences, not just their symptoms, and work toward solutions that can bring relief quickly while also attempting to get at the root of the concerns. I have extensive training and experience in working with anxiety and narcissistic abuse. In addition, some of the issues that I have helped individuals cope with include stress, depression and mood related concerns, childhood trauma including emotional/verbal abuse, postpartum issues, parenting concerns, relationship issues, family of origin issues, and life transitions. I use a blend of cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness based therapy and somatic therapy depending on what the best fit is for each particular individual. I also utilize education to further your understanding of why you may be suffering and assign homework to do in between session to accelerate change, mainly derived from polyvagal theory and nervous system regulation. My goals are for you to become equipped with several tools that you can use to manage your symptoms as they arise, reduce their frequency and severity and come to a better understanding of what ails you - ultimately leading to a more fulfilling life.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Coping with life changes, Adoption and Foster Care, Attachment Issues, Dissociation, Family of Origin Issues, Guilt and Shame, Narcissism, Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks, Postpartum Depression, Post-traumatic Stress, Somatization, Women's Issues

Sheri is a great listener and helps to challenge my dysfunctional thought patterns. She follows up on plans I make and helps to hold me accountable. I feel like I've gotten to know myself better since working with Sheri and I'm more easily able to see warning signs in myself that I need to do something different.
