Greetings! My name is Cheryl and I am glad you are here. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to introduce myself to you.
I have over 25 years of experience counseling and educating individuals, couples, and groups. Prior to moving to Franklin County and Hampshire County here in the Pioneer Valley, I maintained a private practice in the Greater Boston area for over 20 years as a psychotherapist, pastoral counselor and community educator. I find it a privilege to sit with others.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Education from Georgia Southern College, a Master of Divinity from Duke University and a Master of Social Work from Smith College. Hypnosis, Focusing, Reiki, EMDR, and various Shamanic practices are among the trainings I have received.
I have trained in psychodynamic, behavioral, and systems theories. My approach is eclectic, holistic, and practical. I offer a healing environment for therapy and mentoring to ease difficult life transitions.
My spiritual journey has been universal, spanning the Judeo-Christian realms, mystical teachings of the East and West, and several Earth-centered traditions.
The people with whom I sit are often seeking a bridge between psychotherapy, spiritual development, and their daily lives. I will meet you wherever you are on the twists and turns of your life journey. I will listen deeply and join you in a place of stillness where you access inner resources to learn, grow, and thrive.
