I want you to feel comfortable with yourself and rise to your full potential. I have worked with children, adults, couples and families as they navigate obstacles and together we create solutions.

I strive to create a warm and friendly and supportive environment where you feel heard and understood.

I have been seeing Sherie for close to 2 1/2 years now and she has truly helped me in many aspects of life.. The times that we talk I am able to reevaluate my negative thinking process. She is truly a life saver when I am having anxious episodes.

Sherie is a kind, compassionate therapist who listens and understands my problems. She always has some insight and suggestions that I find to be very helpful in dealing with my anxiety and panic disorders. I am so glad that I found her on Better Help and would recommend her to anyone who is seeking therapy for anxiety/panic or depression.
