Testimonials

Sherry helped me a lot in my recovery from panic attacks and debilitating anxiety. I wrote the feelings I had during the time before each of our sessions, we deconstructed the problems I was having in order to focus on the root of the problem, and then we focused on how to deal with the triggers that led to anxiety. For about 10 months, I’ve worked hard and Sherry has helped me function normally again by helping me with skills to deal with challenges in my life. She has done more in our sessions than just listen – I always feel like I have a way to deal with something after I talk with her because she gives me steps and processes to change my negative thoughts and behavior. I’ve benefited so much from her help and I’m really grateful.
