Hi, my name is Sheri Wyatt, I have been a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and therapist for 30 years and my experience includes working with individuals and couples in various settings. 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. 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 transitioning from student role to adult role, individuals struggling with gender identity and transition issues and change, 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!

Sheri is an excellent counsellor who offers genuinely helpful advice and a safe judgement free space to talk about what’s your mind. She also has lots of LGBT expertise which is great!
She's very knowledgeable and very easy to talk to, which is beneficial for a client to have in a counselor. I could see myself working with Sheri for the time I need.
Sheri was truly the counselor I needed to help me turn my life around. I cannot thank her enough.
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!
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.
Sheri is extremely competent and no wet noodle. She will be firm when needed but is no task-master. She is kind and experienced, realistic and encouraging. Highly recommended.
I am dealing with a lot of anxiety and problems communicating in a relationship. Sheri has always been able to first express what I was feeling into a more coherent manner and also give me a different outlook on the circumstances. I highly recommend her expertise.
Sheri is really great. She’s super supportive, attentive, and she provides the right tools to get you through whatever it is you need help with. I highly recommend Sheri.
Sheri is the best. She has helped me a lot; I highly recommend her.
Sheri has helped me a lot, she gave me a fresh perspective on issues I was dealing with and her messages were always comforting and supportive. I highly recommend.
Sheri is a star. She helps in so many ways, in keeping you grounded, to helping you to remember the positives, to just giving you a kick in the butt when you need a dose of reality. Would highly recommend Sheri to anyone.
Sheri is a wonderful counselor and I'm very happy to get her guidance. She continues to follow-up with me regularly and is genuinely concerned about my issues. Thank you!
Has provided me with ways to deal with my internal turmoil.
I don't think there are an adequate amount of words to describe how amazing Sheri is..Sheri has helped me so much, I am truly grateful! She has helped me to do the work I needed to get through some emotional issues I had been dealing with for years. She is kind and works with you; she even checks on you if she hasn't heard from you in a few days. She's the best! I'd definitely recommend her to anyone.
Since I began working with Sheri, I have experienced extremely positive changes in my life. I haven't had a bad day in months and I can barely remember how is feels to be sad - and I am not exaggerating. Sheri has been very observant of my issues and responded with deep insight, curiosity and warmth, which has made the whole experience worth millions. I can highly recommend her to all and everyone.
Sherri is doing a great job with me. She talks to me in a way that is empathetic yet straight to the point. Sherri has helped me a lot in the last few months to get back on track.
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! Sheri has been my supporter, cheerleader, and 'tough-love' advisor - she's also been a great friend to me throughout our time together.
Sheri has been very patient with me. Many times I cannot message her regularly but she always messages me and asks me about things around me. She understood my problem well and I like talking to her.
Sheri is awesome, totally recommended. She gives me great advices and is always there to help me with my daily issues.
I've been in and out of counseling for many years and was quite skeptical as to what my therapist could offer. Sheri has helped me to feel safe and comfortable right from the start. The attention she has given me and her replies and insight have strengthened my will to make positive changes in my life. I look forward to continued work with Sheri.
Sheri has really helped me see some things in a clear way and offered very practical feedback. I appreciate her timeliness and expertise.
Sheri Wyatt was my lifeline in a very critical situation. I would recommend this outstanding professional to anyone facing severe anxiety, panic, or emotional distress.
Sheri is a counselor that is very engaged with her clients. She is understanding, sympathetic, and asks all the right questions.
In my little experience with Sheri I have come to trust her, which isn't easy for me. She is supportive, non-judgmental and seems to genuinely care. I also like that she is intelligent and wise, hard things to find in a counselor.
Sheri is doing a great job giving me constructive feedback that I'm able to utilize and improve.
