About Me

Hello, I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I received a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Central Florida in 2006 and a Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling from Webster University in 2012. I have worked with children, teenagers and adults seeking counseling for over 7 years now. I have worked both online and in an office setting. I have worked with clients whom have a wide range of concerns including; school and peer stressors, mood struggles, depression, anxiety, bullying issues, relationship issues, parenting problems, adjustments to life changes, behavioral and attention deficit as well as Trauma.

My counseling style is compassionate, kind and non-judgemental. I believe in treating everyone with empathy, respect, and compassion. And I do not believe in stigmatizing labels. I use a variety of counseling techniques that will be tailored to your needs; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Accelerated Resolution Therapy, Client-centered, Strengths based, Anxiety reduction, mood management and empowerment techniques . I believe it's best practice to work closely with the client and parent/guardian while also respecting the privacy of all parties involved, especially the young client.

The teenage years can be very difficult and I am here to help support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

She’s very knowledgeable and allows me to get to the answers I have questions to, alone. She helps me to critical think and really analyze my situations that I have difficulty with.

Sherri is fantastic! She truly makes you feel heard and understood. It’s great to have someone to talk to and who also wants you to understand your emotions and help you work on yourself. This is my first experience with therapy and I highly recommend BetteHelp and Sherri.
