I have a really hard time with therapy, normally I feel like it feels like a waste of time. However, since I've been seeing Sherrie I've seen how truly beneficial it can be. I look forward to our sessions. She has challenged the way that I think about things and the way that I view my behavior and the behavior of others. I'm extremely happy to work with someone as knowledgable, compassionate and honest as Sherrie.

Sherrie is a fantastic therapist as well as a genuine human being. Her care is as vast as her knowledge. For those suffering from PTSD or having martial issues, Sherrie is the therapist for you.

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.

I have only had a few visits with Sherrie but find those visits to have been extremely helpful with my issues. She recommended a book that I read outside of therapy to further help with my issues and its like having therapy on hand 24/7. She also asks if there is anything else I need to touch on before ending the session which makes me feel really good & valid.

Sherrie helps me understand why people act the way the do. It’s very easy to talk to her. When I’m feeling vulnerable she sweetly reminds it’s all okay.

Work with me!
