I have numerous areas of specialty and use techniques that I believe will best fit each client. I am committed to helping people heal and grieve. and too help people get through periods of crisis in their lives - either expected or unexpected. 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.

Sherie is a wonderful, empathetic therapist who also has a lot of insight. She has a way of listening and making observations that get past what you think you are saying to what you are really feeling.

Sheri happens to connect with me very well. She is highly skilled and easy to confide in. I never feel judged and always feel supported. Thanks, Sheri.

I’ve only had a couple of sessions with Dr. Sherie and I’m loving it! I had never been to therapy before and from our first session she made me feel understood & safe. Dr. Sherie was recommended to me by a friend and now I can see why. She’s wonderful! I’m truly grateful to have her as my therapist.

Written by M.A. on Aug 09, 2021 after therapy with Sherie for 5 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and family conflicts

Sherie is professional, understanding and helping me to see that I need to make changes in my
life that will help me move forward. She is patient, kind and experienced in her field.

Written by C.A. on May 04, 2021 after therapy with Sherie for 11 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and eating disorders

I’ve been talking with Sherie for a while now and from the beginning she has always been so patient. Even when I have a lot to unpack, we take it slow and work through it all at whatever pace I’m comfortable. At first, it just felt like I was venting, but over time I noticed the things she would tell me were popping up into the back of my head in between sessions. I’ve really started to see a big difference in myself & my mindset!

Sherie is an amazing therapist. I've had recurring depression and anxiety since I was young, with numerous attempts at seeing therapists for help. Due to switching insurance or not feeling like I was getting much out of my sessions, I was never able to stick to therapy. Sherie has been my therapist for ~9 months. I come out of every single session with something new to reflect on, a new perspective or awareness of something I did not notice before; I feel more positive and capable of handling tough things in life than ever. It always feels like she cares, without any judgment. Her "About Me" summary describes her perfectly! I am so grateful to her and truly impressed. I am also so grateful for the option of online therapy and that I gave it a chance.
