Greetings. I am a professional counselor with over 18 years experience working in the areas of grief, trauma, anticipatory grief, caregiver stress, end of life issues, depression, life changes, stress, and chronic illness. I am certified as a grief counselor (GC-C) and as a grief counselor specializing in children and adolescents (GCCA-C). I am committed to assisting you with identifying the changes you want in your life and then exploring different strategies to help you achieve your goals.
I would describe my approach to therapy as eclectic. I work with the individual to find the approach that best meets their needs and work to provide the tools that are needed to effect change and promote growth.
Finally, I view the therapeutic alliance as a partnership requiring mutual trust, respect, honesty, communication, and commitment to do the work.
Hopefully, what I have shared here will help you choose a therapist that best meets your needs. Should you choose me, I look forward to our journey together.

Sheryl has been amazing with me. She's given me a space I feel free to express myself and talk about what impacts my day to day. I was not ready for therapy when I first met her, but when I came back, Sheryl was so welcoming!

I like Sheryl as it feels like she isn't jumping just trying to speed through things but to actually get to the root of my problems and helps me with ways to work on those problems.
