Cheryl’s approach to mental health is holistic; addressing the mind and body interconnectedness as well as the interpersonal relationships and spiritual features with the people she works with. She incorporates evidence based traditional and alternative therapies including cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapy. Cheryl added ART ( Accelerated Resolution Therapy); a therapy that can rapidly reduce a person's symptoms and help them get unstuck. She has level II training in ART. This therapy was born out of EMDR, it uses eye movements and typically is effective with fewer sessions than EM.
