More about me

Licensing: LPC
Years in Practice: 15

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia; with over 15 years of experience helping individuals. I have worked with adults, families, and children. I have experience with a wide variety of concerns such as serious mental health issues, trauma, marital/relationship issues, depression, anxiety, anger management, and grief and loss. I have worked with individuals with a variety of diagnoses (Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, and PTSD to name a few). Other areas of concern include : adjusting to life changes (careers, relationships, parenting and life changes/transitions). My goal is to provide the best possible support, guidance and clinical intervention to enhance the lives of each individual and family I serve.

My counseling style is welcoming, interactive, relaxed and non-judgmental. I believe in equality and treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I believe in honesty and not focusing on stigmatizing labels. My therapeutic approach is personalized to you as I am eclectic in my approach. I combine person centered approach, cognitive-behavioral and solution focused therapy.

It takes strength and courage to get here, and I look forward to the opportunity to assist you in reaching your goals, helping you make changes and begin your healing process.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I’ve been working with Sheryl for the past ten months and have made so much progress. I look forward to our calls each week and always feel more clear and calm afterwards. Sheryl is very skilled at listening and knowing exactly what I need from week to week, day to day. She’s really helped me reduce anxiety and challenge negative thought patterns, while also offering suggestions to guide me in my personal relationships. Sheryl is always there for me via text message, too, in between phone sessions and checks in on me during difficult periods. She’s also just so warm and fun to talk to!
