Sheri is an Associate Professional Counselor who has focused on working primarily with individual adults and couples, who are seeking help with relationships, self-esteem, trauma, chronic illness, anxiety or depression. She also works with spouses experiencing the demands of intense executive life styles. Sheri completed a Masters in Professional Counseling from Richmont Graduate School in Atlanta, with specialized course work in the application of Christian Spirituality in Counseling.
Sheri’s approach in counseling is to partner with the client in a collaborative way to help them grow in self-leadership of mind, body, and spirit. She works with common obstacles which prevent us from growing into wholeness, some examples are traumas of the past, boundary conflicts, negative self-talk, emotional burdens, health issues, and difficult in patterns of relationship. Deep listening and empathy, together with sound clinical knowledge are the tools Sheri uses to provide a safe haven to explore issues interfering with the client’s goals and desires for life.
Believing that each client is a unique individual, Sheri collaborates with them to determine what specific plan and techniques are best suited for them. She pulls from mindfulness techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy, and emotional regulation practices. Attachment and family systems theories are foundational to her work since identities and experiences largely result from our early influences. At the request of the client, Sheri integrates prayer and Biblical principles in the therapy room.
Sheri has been trained and certified with Christian Healing Ministries, has interned with the Amen Clinic, and has assisted at Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
