She is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington. Cheryl  provides mental health services for men and women at her private practice; with a specialty in working with women who have a history of trauma.

Therapeutic Approach

I believe therapy is a deeply personal journey that is most effective when treatment goals are co-created and aimed at improving client functioning, relationships, and quality of life. I enjoy working with issues of anxiety, trauma, grief/loss and other life transitions. I work to create a comfortable space for listening, reflecting, and questioning which allows fresh insights to emerge. It is my goal to provide a safe place for the language of your heart. My passion is to guide individuals in the process of defining their healing through the integration of their faith and various therapeutic approaches to mental health.
