Wyatt Okeefe

LPC, LMHC

About me

Hi, my preferred name is Wyatt. My pronouns He/They/His. I am a transmasculine human. I carry my professional license under the name Sheri Wyatt. I have been a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and therapist for 36 years and my preference is working with adults. I do not work with couples or families. I have specialized in working with adults who have experienced childhood abuse and who may have trauma recovery needs, intimacy and relationship issues, depression and anxiety and LGBTQ issues, especially transgender/nonbinary related issues. I have extensive experience with telephonic counseling and therapy in addition to face to face therapeutic interaction. My interpersonal style is interactive and I am fully engaged with my client during our sessions. Into every interaction I bring respect, humor, kindness, honesty and a true desire to help my clients meet their life goals.

My therapeutic style is flexible depending on the needs of my clients. I am always friendly and kind and have a person centered approach with an existentialist leaning as I believe we as humans strive to find meaning in our lives in everything we do and in every interaction we have. We need meaningful relationships, work and social activities in order to be healthy and when we don’t have meaning we become unhappy, overwhelmed, depressed or addicted. In addition to my existentialist toolkit, I have many other therapeutic tools I can use to help clients achieve their mental health goals including but not limited to, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy and some Jungian concepts as well. I tailor my style and focus based on my client’s needs and interpersonal style.

Much of my work is with individuals who are undergoing significant life changes such as gender expression/identity physical, social and emotional transition, navigating significant live changes such as moving from student role to adult role, coming out, marriage and divorce, changing careers and other major life transitions. I know that even good change can be stressful and can bring up long forgotten issues or old coping skills that are no longer useful to us, so one of my goals is to help clients identify what old mechanism is being triggered and help them develop newer more useful coping skills so they can successfully navigate all the current aspects of change and develop skills that can be used when facing life’s next challenges.

If you are interested in taking the next steps in your journey I am here and looking forward to hearing from you!

Wyatt has helped me through many big life transitions and in understanding who I am. I've learned and developed useful skills to help with anxiety and any negative feelings that arise so that I can tackle them.

Sheri has helped me so much. I always feel uplifted after talking to her. She is like a friend, but says it like it is, even if it is something I don’t want to hear. She seems to think of things in a way that I’ve never considered. I appreciate her so much.

Written on May 25, 2021 after therapy with Wyatt for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

I'm so happy and so lucky to have found Sheri. We've been working together for just a few weeks and I feel like a painful void in my life is coming together and filling in because of Sheri's support. We talk through messages and on video and it's a great balance to know that she's there in between video calls. Our dialogue just keeps on movin' and I never knew I could really feel like chatting online would be therapeutic but it truly truly is for me. I have a new feeling of hope and a new will to push forward ... I have Sheri to thank for helping me find that within myself. I still have a lot of work to do but I have Sheri by my side and on my team to get me to my personal finish line.

Written on Aug 18, 2020 after therapy with Wyatt for 2 years and 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, and bipolar disorder

Sheri has been an invaluable help to me in times when no other therapist was able to help me. Her approach is individual, caring, thoughtful, insightful, compassionate, reasonable, informative, well-informed... She is patient, she is great at shifting your perspective. and taking away what you need to process in order to see your situation differently. Her insight into LGBTQ issues is also an incredible resource, as is her knowledge in general. Sheri has always been so attentive and in times when I needed someone to sternly tell me I needed to do better, she wasn't afraid to be honest about it. I always look forward to receiving her replies -- she is so insightful!! And it's clear she really pays attention to each individual client and their specific life and needs. Thank you for everything, Sheri!!

Coolest therapist I’ve had (and I’ve had A LOT!). The right person for me at this time, who’s willing to read my super-long texts and address every issue from the most existential to the most mundane. I’m totally grateful and I’ve discovered so much about myself in the past few months. Totally recommended!

Written on Dec 09, 2019 after therapy with Wyatt for 5 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse

She is really helpful. She listens but I think most important she asks the right questions. I think other therapists I've worked with put blame on me on some level for abuse I've been through... Not purposefully but I don't think the had the right training. Sheri has really been great with me. She is really great and I'm grateful to have found her.

Written on Nov 13, 2019 after therapy with Wyatt for 2 years on issues concerning depression, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

After being diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorder and social anxiety, leaving the house to speak to someone face to face was the LAST thing I wanted to do. BetterHelp allowed me to meet and talk to Sheri in the comfort of my own home. Sheri has helped me battle my anxiety and show it who's boss!
