I am a Clinical Professional Counselor licensed in Nevada with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including coping skills, anger management, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, sexual issues, OCD, ADD/ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I started my career working with homeless veterans with trauma and addictions issues as well as children victims of severe sexual trauma.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic solution-focused therapy and motivational interviewing. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I love Cheri’s energy
She is amazing! Listen very well and great feedback
I’m beyond thankful for Cheri’s insights and expertise. I have been struggling for years with trauma, anxiety and stress and she has made such a positive impact from day one. My journal entries and weekly call help guide me in all areas of my life. I’m very thankful for her!
I am a parent and found out about teen counseling through a friend. I am glad that I did. Counselor Cheri Sotelo has really been helping my son. Her concerns and expertise have really been a blessing. I highly recommend her.
Simply put, Cheri is Amazing.
I am enjoying the process with Cheri. She has opened up my way of thinking.
Knowledgeable, friendly, helpful. Cheri is an effective counselor who is easy to talk to & I look forward to each session.
Dr. Sotelo really listens and lets us work through the problem. She has helped give us tools to address issues in our marriage and set a great foundation from the get go about how we are going to handle things. We have a long way to go during counseling but I feel we have a great partner to help us through tough conversations.
Working with Cheri for about 4 and half months was the best decision I could have made. I was in such a dark hole I thought I could never get out of. She was so supportive and gave me all new insights to myself and things around me. I feel like a changed person for the better because she gave me the tools to help myself. I was sad to end sessions with her but she had already helped me through my issues and I had no more pressing problems to bring out. She is easily one of my most favorite people I have met, I am so happy I got to work with her.
We have only had a couple of sessions but, they have been enlightening. I feel Cheri not only takes the time to understand but she seems truly care about you as person. So far I am very pleased and would definitely recommend.
I am so grateful that someone suggested teen counseling and that I was connected with Cheri. Starting therapy has been one of the best decisions for me. Cheri makes me feel heard and gives me a safe space to share my thoughts. Her insights and knowledge about why I feel or experience things the way I do are invaluable. I look forward to my therapy sessions every week.
She has guided us to making amazing improvements in our relationship.
She is well experienced in a variety of problems and is very helpful
Cheri has been a really big help, especially for someone who has not had much experience in counselling. Her expertise and background has been a great reassurance and I feel like i l can reach out to her in a comfortable manner. She has been very responsive and has always ensured that the sessions had always been non-judgemental.
Cheri has helped me make some progress after just a couple of sessions. She’s a great listener and has offered some really helpful tips for working on myself and getting through tough situations. She is non-judge mental and compassionate and helps you believe in your ability to grow and stay resilient
Dr. Cheri is an out of the box counselor. She's down to earth, easy to talk to, and very straightforward. I don't like sugar coding or labeling without evidence. She actually listens to you and genuinely work to understand what your needs are. I greatly appreciate working with her and she gives me hope that I can take charge of my own life. Thank you for assisting me along my path.
Cheri has given me a space to be vulnerable and feel safe doing so. I feel cared for, listened to and I feel validated in my feelings and pain. And real ways and suggestions to work through the trauma. I never feel judged. I highly recommend.
Cheri has been both an incredible resource and counselor. She is attentive, caring, and knowledgeable on a variety of subjects. She has been an excellent aid for assisting in our communication struggles. I could not recommend her enough!
Cheri has already helped me so much. I feel she really listens, and gives me strength with her insights & analogies. I trust her & believe I’ve found the perfect fit counsellor to help me through my grief & rebuild me in the other side. I’m especially grateful for her advice on how to comfort & express with my Downsyndrome brother ❤️ Grateful & optimistic
She is a bliss, as if she hears unspoken words and I don’t need to spend a lot of effort trying to convey my concerns. Her advices and comments are to the point, lots of questions have finally found the answer after many years, Thank you Cheri ❤️
