My Experience:

SheraFireplaceBWOver the last 13 years, I have worked extensively with children, adolescents, and adults dealing with eating disorders, abuse, behavioral problems, depression, anxiety, grief, substance abuse, and family conflict. I have helped adult clients explore issues concerning family of origin, depression, anxiety, grief, abuse, sexuality, divorce, and addictive behaviors. I have assisted couples as they navigate a myriad of relationship issues, and I am a Certified PREPARE/ENRICH Counselor. I have facilitated child, adolescent, and adult groups focusing on spirituality, anger management, depression, relationship and life skills, and survivors of suicide.

I have experience leading seminars for teachers, adolescents, and their parents on adolescent sexuality and adolescent cognitive development. I have taught graduate level courses in Group Therapy and Lifestyle Development and Career Counseling. My graduate and post-graduate education emphasized therapeutic techniques and theories, diagnosis, professional ethics, and the integration of psychology, theology, and spirituality.
