I also believe that our relationships from birth to the present have a profound impact on us. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with a variety of people throughout my life who have shared their stories and experiences with me, and I am excited to join others on their own journeys towards healing.

about me

i'm cheryl

I am a Master of Counseling intern from the City University of Seattle, with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Alberta. I am passionate about working alongside people who have experienced grief, loss, and trauma. I work from a client-centered, attachment-based lens. I feel that everyone is unique in their grieving process and there is no wrong or right way to do so.

I am thrilled to be part of mental health profession and I am passionate about working to remove any stigma there is around therapy. Therapy can feel scary, like most unknowns tend to be, and I recognize your bravery for taking the first step. I am also a firm believer in finding a therapist you click with, so please reach out to book a free 15-minute consultations with me to see if I feel like a good fit for you and your goals.

You deserve a connection that fosters success while having someone in your corner, and I hope that I can be that person for you!

Trust and honesty

I strive to create a warm and safe therapeutic environment that is free from judgment. Creating a positive alliance with you is essential to build trust and provide the space for vulnerability and honesty. 

Comfort is essential

I have a laid-back personality and I am typically found in a cozy hoodie. By showing up in my authentic self, I hope this encourages you to feel comfortable enough to show up exactly how you wish to as well! 

Capacity to hold space

I am able to gently explore sensitive issues such as grief and trauma while respecting your own pace. I am here and able to hold space for you and your emotions, no matter how big, tender, or overwhelming they may be. 

Joint effort and journey together

I work collaboratively with you with an open, grounded, and calm presence. I do not push my own agenda in session as I believe you are the expert of your own life. In line with this approach, I also value feedback from you to ensure that our therapeutic alliance and our work together is meeting your needs.
