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.
