“I had sabotaged everyone and everything around me . . . mostly myself. Working with Cheryl began a long and steady climb to a functioning and whole life. I now feel hopeful and alive.” —CH

“I didn’t really believe that I could change. I didn’t believe in myself and there was no future. All I had were my drugs and drinking. Because Cheryl would not give up on me, I did not give up on myself. I have been clean and sober for twelve years now.” —EM

“My addictions began at age eleven when a friend brought beer to our hide-out in the woods. By twenty-four I had been arrested many times and had been in and out of jail and rehabs. Cheryl changed the course of my life. I got my G.E.D. and have my own business now.” —RG

“The court ordered me into treatment. I had a huge chip on my shoulder and plenty of skepticism. I went from feelings of resentment and anger to trust and love. Cheryl guided me in a way that enabled me to reshape my future dreams into present realities. I guess I should thank the court.” —TS

“Being an addict for four decades was the way it was. I was going to die with a bottle of Jack, clutching a fistful of painkillers. Not my wife or my kids could make me change. Working with Cheryl did.” —GY

"Cheryl helped me understand that as humans we all have flaws and to accept them. She also helped me understand that life is always going to be a growth process (if you let it) and that I can build from my mistakes. Not only is Cheryl the ultimate professional and excellent at what she does, Cheryl’s warm personality, humor and infectious laugh made my experience easier to go through to the point that I looked forward to our sessions. I was comfortable sharing my story with her, knowing that it was not a judgment but a process of healing. She’s the best!” —JD

“Cheryl has been an instrumental part of my life’s transformation. She has an amazing ability to connect with others by being compassionate, understanding and insightful. As a result of working with Cheryl, I was able to make necessary and lasting changes in my life. I was able to let go of an unhealthy relationship and earn a graduate degree. I look forward to reading her book for continued growth.” —MH

“I began therapy with Cheryl when I was thirty-four years old. I was newly recovering in AA, was in a very abusive, obsessive relationship, dealing with difficult childhood issues, floundering in my chosen field, and suffering from enormous and debilitating low self-esteem. Therapy was encouraging and comforting. Cheryl’s strength gradually became my own during this dark, despairing time in my life. With her uncanny insights, emotional support and guidance, I was able to end my addictive relationship, raise a wonderful son, have a happy marriage and a successful career. I became truly sober, learned to love and value myself, and turned my life around. I am forever grateful.” —EH

willingness and patience, and in return, a better life can be yours.”
