More about me

State: VA

Hi there, I'm Cherie! A licensed professional counselor, Navy Veteran spouse, and new mom. I'm so glad you're here! I graduated with my Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in May of 2016. Prior to completing my masters program, I worked as a Case Manager for several years, so I've been in mental health for awhile. Helping & supporting others through life's difficult challenges is a passion of mine and I truly feel it is my calling.

I've worked with a multitude of diagnoses from depression, anxiety, trauma-related disorders, self-harm, personality disorders, and more. My counseling style is very relaxed and eclectic, as I use many different therapeutic approaches, primarily client-centered. I base my approach off my clients specific needs. I'm warm, compassionate, and friendly. I also like to think of myself as very down to earth and real, not robotic or "by the book." Therapy can often be intimidating and scary at times, and I work hard to assure that I provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere for my clients and their families. I believe in respect, compassion, and understanding. I'm a firm believer in listening to hear and understand, not just to respond.

Remember, it's OKAY to not be okay and seeking therapy doesn't always have to mean something is "wrong." Sometimes you just need to process general life frustrations and challenges with someone who has an unbiased, outside looking in perspective. It takes great courage to seek support and I'm thrilled that you've taken this first step towards a happier and more fulfilling life! When you're ready, I'll be here to encourage, motivate, and help guide you in the direction you're seeking. I look forward to working with you!

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 Cherie for about a year now and she has been instrumental to my improvement and coping with the loss of my father and my general anxiety. She is patient, compassionate, thoughtful, and provides tangible ways to cope and manage anxiety and depression. Very grateful to have Cherie as my therapist and would strongly recommend her for those going through a tough transition, dealing with loss and the challenges of anxiety/depression.

I always feel heard and validated with Cherie. She is an amazing therapist and I appreciate her approach. Having experienced a therapist that I did not feel comfortable with previously it is amazing to feel so comfortable in our sessions.

Cherie has been essential in preserving and improving my mental health. I am so fortunate to have been paired with her. She has given me a space to dump my figurative load and figure out how to approach the challenges in my life. THANK YOU!

Cherie is attentive, personable, supportive and friendly. I like that she asked me what are my modes of communication and what are my needs. Still building a relationship so can’t speak to how effective therapy has been with Cherie, but I can say, it’s off to a great start.

I am new to therapy and counseling, and Cherie Ditmer has been the best guide into this. She is respectful, caring, and so very helpful while we tackle my problems and helps me grow through the anxiety and depression.
