About Me

Hello! If you are exploring Better Help, it is likely that you are struggling with something significant in your life. Finding the right person to help you through these challenges is very important. If you don't have a good relationship with your counselor, you won't make the progress you are hoping to achieve. I want to provide you with some information about me in order to help you decide if my experience and style is the right match for you.

I am a professional counselor licensed in Wyoming and Colorado and a National Certified Counselor. I have been counseling individuals since 2003 when I graduated with a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology. In 2018 I graduated with a Ph.D. in General Psychology, which added to my knowledge base. Throughout the years, I have worked in a variety of settings including private practice, community mental health centers, and schools. I have worked with people of all ages experiencing a wide variety of struggles, from everyday issues to depression and anxiety. My approach is client-centered and I use theory and techniques from humanistic therapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. I understand that each person's experiences and needs are unique and I will tailor our work to fit your goals.

We can interact in the modality that is most comfortable to you - live chat, live voice, or live video. In between live sessions, we can use the messaging system to discuss scheduling and outside assignments, share thoughts and questions that come up between sessions, and share and discuss journal entries (if you use that feature). My availability is primarily in the evenings and on the weekends.

I know finding a counselor can be difficult and I would be honored to take this journey with you.

She's awesome. Empathetic, patient, kind, and friendly. She's really eager and focused on moving forward with you as a client/patient, and really good at productive and constructive dialogue.

She’s amazing. Unfortunately I am in a situation where I need 24/7 support. Better Help can’t provide that.

Written by S.U. on Apr 15, 2022 after therapy with Sheri for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, career difficulties, and coaching

I have been so grateful for Dr. Wester’s guidance and partnership these past many months. She is receptive and attentive, supportive and insightful, a sounding board when I need it, or a mirror. She offers proactive, actionable advice at every session. I have made so much progress reorienting my viewpoint and accepting myself with Dr. Wester’s able guidance.

Dr Wester is very helpful and engaging.

Written by A.M. on Dec 28, 2021 after therapy with Sheri for 1 year and 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, and career difficulties

Dr. Wester had been a wonderful help for me. I worked with her a year ago and then took some time off for life and picked up again with her the end of this year. It was beneficial to not have to start all over again and to work with someone who really helps me out in so many ways. I have recommended her to friends who need this type of support.

Dr. Wester is extremely thorough on helping me understand my situations and how to approach them. She responds to messages as quickly as she can and is very accommodating when adjusting scheduled sessions.

Written by P.A. on Mar 21, 2021 after therapy with Sheri for 4 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and anger management

Dr. Wester is great! She’s kind, thoughtful, very understanding and truly listens. She has helped me tremendously with my anger and inability to deal with high distress situations and not only helped me to understand, but also gave me the tools to actually work through and become better. My life has literally changed bc of how she has helped me. I couldn’t be more grateful.

Dr. Wester always makes me feel heard and normal. Even when I’m anxious to talk about it before a session I always feel better afterwards. I don’t feel judged when I talk to her and it’s refreshing to have a safe space to talk and learn and grow.

Dr. Wester is quick to respond to scheduling appointments, very flexible with appointment times, she keeps the conversation on track, and gives excellent tools for coping!

I love Dr. Wester so much, she has helped me immensely and we have only had a few sessions. I look forward to our meetings and know that I can share anything with her.

Written by A.M. on Nov 28, 2020 after therapy with Sheri for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, and coping with life changes

Every session, Sheri really understood my issues and gave me helpful advices on how to approach them. I was going through a very tough period in my life when I started my sessions w/ her, but she helped me through it. Thanks again!!

Written by A.D. on Nov 13, 2020 after therapy with Sheri for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, parenting issues, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I have appreciated her suggestions. Another perspective on the little things in life has been helpful.

Written by J.E. on Oct 01, 2020 after therapy with Sheri for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

I came to Dr. Wester in a bad point in my life and she has given me exercises and journal entries to do. She’s there on the weekends if I need to talk and doesn’t belittle me about how I am feeling. I truly appreciate her.

Written by K.E. on Sep 15, 2020 after therapy with Sheri for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, and grief

Dr. Wester gives me a lot of confidence that I’m with the right person. I feel I’m able to connect with her, and at the same time feel like she has the exact expertise and knowledge to give me advice, coaching and understanding that I absolutely need. She is professional, but I also feel a level of connection that I require to feel comfortable. Which for me is a necessary level of comfort I need from a person to feel understood. I feel like she’s there for me. And she has deep experience in a lot of areas. And this gives me confidence that she understands human struggles, methods to truly dig deep into discovering core struggles, and tactics to overcome challenge uncertainty and hurt.

Work with me!
