Hello future clients! Please take a minute and appreciate yourself as this is the first step in your health journey. The initial step of recognizing the desire for change and acting on it, can be the most difficult for some.
A little about myself, I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years of counseling/social work experience. I believe in partnering with each client to reach specified structured goals and I look forward to partnering with you. As a women of color, mother, wife, supervisor and employee I have experienced juggling multiple expectations at a time while navigating through the complexities this may bring.
I consider myself an “Urban Therapist” as I derive from the low-income housing projects of San Francisco. My personal background includes experiences with crime, violence, trauma and other aspects of living in an under resourced environment. I’m proud to say as a native San Franciscan beginning my career in the city’s world famous Tenderloin District exposed me to a variety of counseling experiences with adults including work with historically under-represented groups such as LGBTQIA+, Persons of Color and those from a lower social economic status. Other aspects of my work have included work with adults experiencing depression, work conflicts and relationship stressors. These roots have lead me to provide supportive guidance to adults working through situations ranging from a stressful work environment, substance addiction to the effects of gun violence.
My career including work with the homeless, child welfare, HIV/AIDS, medical social work and my personal experiences have prepared me for these challenges. My formal experiences provided knowledge and skill sets in Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Client Centered Therapy which are the frameworks I most often use. I again want to applaud you for taking the first step in your health journey. I’m looking forward to meeting you where we will work together to map put your journey!

Sherice has played a key role in my growth as a person this past year. I feel safe when I am in a session with her. I feel validated and affirmed during our sessions but at the same time, I am challenged and pushed to continue growing. Her patience, attentiveness, and humor are something that has made me feel safe and seen during our sessions. She is an amazing counselor!
Sherice has been a fantastic counselor over the past few months. She's provided me with valuable insights with openness and a sense of humor and exceeded all of my expectations. I'm looking forward to making more personal growth as I progress thanks to her smart and measured guidance.
Sherice is an absolutely wonderful counselor. She is kind, understanding and supportive. I appreciate that she is so easy to talk to and always meets me where I’m at emotionally. I would absolutely recommend Sherice to anyone!
I think she is amazing and is always thinking the exact same thing I am thinking.
She is very knowledgeable and has provided me great resources and ways to better my everyday life.
Even though I have only had one session with Sherice Youngblood so far, I have never felt more comfortable with a stranger in my life. She has made such a major difference in my life already, and I feel genuinely happy for the first time in a long time. She truly knows what she is doing.
