Cheri Sotelo

(MS, CPC)

About Me

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 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.

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.
