I have experience in helping teens and young adults with trauma and abuse, coping with grief and loss, parent issues, depression, anxiety, and many other issues that can pop up. Being a teen can be difficult sometimes and I want to help you get to a happier place in your life. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

I look forward to working with you!

Sheri’s services are unmatched of any counseling services I’ve tried in my local area.

I'm really impressed with how much Sheri communicates with me. She does way more than I ever would have expected. I kinda feel like maybe she's even overworking for me, because she's doing so much for me. I've been able to pack a lot of therapy into just a couple weeks, because I have been able to communicate with her on almost a daily basis, using journals, e-mails, chats, and video appointments.

I'm really glad I paid for teen counseling. It's a really good value. My mom only gets 15 minutes of talk time with her psychiatrist, and he charges her one hundred dollars, and doesn't talk to her again for a whole month. So, I kind of assumed this would be similar - Get my 15 minutes, and be rushed out. It's not that way with teen counseling at all. I used to not understand why people who use psychiatry also need a talk therapist, but now it makes complete sense. I see now that the psychiatrist is only doing the medications, which for some people, may only be a band-aid. The talk therapist spends more time with you, so you can process your emotions and heal. And it's a lot more than just ranting, like I did with past talk therapists. Sheri talks with you, so you're not just complaining or venting. She gives you some feedback, so you don't feel like you're just talking to a wall.

I also want to thank teen counseling for the information that Sheri shared with me, like coping skills, from the beginning. My past therapists would use words like coping skills and self care, but I never really knew what they meant by those terms, and for some reason I didn't ask. I assumed coping skills are how you cope and self care is taking care of yourself, but there is more to it than that. She gives you an entire page of examples of coping skills you can use.

Also, I use Alpha Medical for my medications, and they recommended teen counseling, not knowing I had already signed up with you guys. Alpha Medical is very good for help with medication, so when they recommended you guys, I felt confident I was in the right place. I have two children with very severe special needs. They are teenagers but function at a 12 to 18 month level. It is extremely difficult to find babysitters for them. An online platform, like teen counseling, makes it so I can concentrate more on self care - taking care of my own mental health to be the healthiest and strongest I can mentally, so I can be the mom I need to be for my boys. I am very grateful for Sheri and teen counseling, and I plan to stick with this for as long as it's available.
