Cherie Chronis

, AMFT, MFT-I

Associate Therapist

Cherie grew up in a small town in Iowa where her father was the mayor. As a teenager, Cherie was saddened by mental healthcare, the lack of understanding and resources. She dreamed of a life outside her small town, with passion and desire to help others overcome mental health related challenges. As a therapist today, Cherie’s experiences have enriched her understanding of what causes trauma, how to recover from it, and how to care for ourselves emotionally. She absolutely loves her work and could not imagine a more rewarding profession.

Cherie is experienced working with individuals, families, and couples, of all ages and with a number of differing challenges. Clients like you, who might feel nervous about seeing a therapist, feel at ease right away with Cherie. Clients express that they are able to open up to her without feeling judged.

Many may not know that: Cherie has also worked as a personal trainer and aerobics instructor. She is the proud mother of four children. On her free time, her secret pleasure is watching reality tv, and she just can’t seem to get her mind off therapy, as she watches Celebrity Rehab and Dr. Drew.
