Sherrie listens to me and respects my feelings/thoughts/and personal choices/issues. I feel heard. She allows me space to process and helps me work through complicated stressors.

Sherrie has helped me change my life. I feel like i am a completely different person. In just 5 months I’ve been able to be the person I’ve always wanted to be. She’s not only helped me with ways to cope with things, but also how to implement those exercises :)

Sherrie took the time to help me feel comfortable. This was my first time reaching out for therapy. Sherrie made me feel listened to, and like my problems were valid and that I could and would overcome them. She gave me so many resources and tools to succeed and life skills that I could use any time I need to, as well as real insight on myself

Sherrie is an understanding therapist who focuses on helping you understand more about your interactions, and perception of others in your daily life. She keeps you focused on what’s important instead of tacking on labels such as disorders, and knows how to assist you in making sense of how people operate and how you can improve your life based upon those interactions. I couldn’t recommend a better therapist, as I believe this is the best that is available.
