More about me

Licensing: MSW, LCSW
Years in Practice: 17

I believe that it takes strength and courage to ask for help when we are vulnerable. Sharing your challenges is not an easy task and can feel very unsettling. My goal is to support you in your journey with compassion, respect and kindness. I have had many times in my life when I have needed that supportive listener to help me process and reflect on what choices are in front of me. I want you to have an experience that is productive, fruitful and leaves you feeling better about yourself and your life. I want your to feel powerFULL, not powerless, in your life. And I work in ways that I think help people do just that.

My primary modality is Cognitive Behavior Therapy which helps us to see how our thoughts impact our actions and how we can shift this. In my own life I use mindfulness techniques to help me cope with life’s stressors and I try to share those methods with others so that they may benefit from this well researched way of remaining calm and centered. Focusing on the solutions is another way that I try to support a forward-thinking approach in therapy. I am strengths based and feminist in my approach with clients as well. That is to say that I recognize the good that people possess but also recognize the reality of things in the world around us, especially the disparities for women.

The areas that I have the most effectiveness include anxiety, challenges of parenting, self-esteem issues, women's issues. communication in relationships, family dynamic challenges, military life challenges and more. I have a BA in Psychology from Boston College and an Masters Degree in Social Work from University of Southern Maine. I am licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in the State of Virginia. I am married with 2 kids and 2 dogs. I look forward to helping you find the opportunity that often comes when we are faced with difficult times in our life.

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 really appreciate Sheri's honesty. If I am facing a problem and there is something I can do to fix it, she will always help me work through it and find a solution, as well as help me create a plan to get to my solution. Her advice is very valuable and has proven to be useful every time I follow it.
