Cheryl has an MA in Counseling from Spring Arbor University and is a LPC in the State of Michigan. As a professional counselor, she is passionate about helping individuals and couples find insight into themselves and develop new skills and tools to overcome life’s challenges through a faith based perspective. Her therapeutic lens helps to identify specific areas of struggle for her clients and empowers them to move toward a healthier, more fulfilled, and happy life. Typically, Cheryl helps clients presenting with issues related to varying levels of depression, anxiety, trauma, disordered eating, and/or complex family dynamics as well as grief. Using faith and spirituality as the catalyst, she helps them discover and establish resilience as well as purpose.
In addition to working with adults, her experiences include counseling children ages 10 and up dealing with life transitions, anxiety, depression, relational issues, anger management, and grief or loss. Cheryl is also co-founder of Dunegrass Healing Outdoor Therapy, which offers outdoor therapy programs for adolescents.
Family life is a priority for Cheryl and keeping up with her twin boys keeps her busy. When she’s not working with clients, you’ll likely find her out kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing or out on a hike or run with her boys.
