She’s really been helpful. I really like working with her. She initiates messages to see how you are doing outside of the scheduled meetings. Very helpful!

Sherri is always here to lend an ear and give thoughtful, personalized feedback. She checks in regularly and supports me in my goals and whatever I want to work on.

I’ve been with Sherri for a couple of months now and I couldn’t be happier that I got matched to her. I’ve heard all of these horror stories about therapist and clients not getting a long but Sherri is amazing. She listens when I want to be heard and gives me great advice. My friends, family and myself have seen an improvement in me since starting therapy. She is amazing and truly cares about her clients.

I’ve only had a couple sessions with Sherri but I feel that she has a genuine care for progress and getting to know me and how she can actually help. She’s not one to just sit back and listen, she advises and guides and wants to get to the root of the issue. Definitely someone I would recommend to others.

Sherri is great. I always feel listened to. I feel like she’s working with me toward my goals, it’s not like someone looking down on me. She’s got practical solutions for coping with what I’m going through as well.

Sherri is a really great counselor. She is attentive, perceptive, timely, and truly caring. She listens and focuses on what you are saying and what you are not saying. She is also professional and courteous. She also has a genuine personality that is relatable. She was there for me during some pretty dark times and has effectively and kindly helped me out. I would 10/10 recommend her.

She’s very knowledgeable and allows me to get to the answers I have questions to, alone. She helps me to critical think and really analyze my situations that I have difficulty with.

Sherri knows when to say with the right words and most of all how to just let me talk and not push. Just experiencing a tough loss and she knows just when to ask questions and just let me say what I need.
