"I started seeing Cheri after a very loved one revealed he was struggling to overcome addiction. It was a very difficult time for both of us, and I knew I needed someone outside of the situation to talk to that wouldn't judge me or him. Cheri provided me with exactly that, and more. Even after his battle subsided, I continued to see Cheri because I realized it is a huge relief to have someone that I knew I would be seeing once a week to talk to. Cheri understands that life isn't always easy, and though she knows she can't solve all the world's problems, she makes it obvious that she will, and wants to, listen to them anyway. She always knows exactly when to chime in to present a perspective I might not have considered, or offer a compliment in tough times. She played a vital role in helping me put myself on the path I am on now. She is definitely one of the kindest women I have ever gotten to talk to."
"My teenage daughter and I saw Cheri to deal with anxiety and a health issue my daughter was having. Cheri did such an amazing job listening to both of our concerns and getting to the heart of the matter for each of us. She is patient, caring, but firm when she needs to be. She provided strategies for both of us to manage our stress while giving ourselves permission to feel what we were feeling. I highly recommend Cheri if you are looking for a caring compassionate therapist for yourself or your child."
"I worked with Cheri for just over a year- driving from the southwest suburbs through many a snowstorm. I can tell you, she was definitely worth it! What I appreciate most about working with Cheri is her level of expertise on the subject of narcissism/co-dependency as well as the warm, caring atmosphere she provided during our sessions. Cheri was especially supportive and gave me the insight and confidence to successfully navigate my dysfunctional relationship, focus on my own health and happiness and set clear boundaries with others. I finished my sessions with Cheri feeling positive and empowered in the world. That’s a remarkable gift!"
"Cheri has helped my 7 year old son understand, in his level, how his body felt when he was feeling anxious and provided him with ways to calm himself. She worked with Emmitt to help him see all the positive qualities he possesses which in turn improved his self esteem so much that he began to make eye contact with others and he finally began to smile often. Her gentle, fun and nurturing ways where just what my son needed."
"Cheri's calm demeanor, compassion and listening skills put me immediately at ease with her. She has an innate ability of asking the right questions in order to bring clarity to the issue at hand and yet is straightforward when needed. Through working with Cheri, I was empowered to make needed changes that have brought peace and happiness for me and my family. Cheri's experience, commitment and caring nature makes her an asset to Clinical Care Consultants. I highly recommend her as a therapist for children and adults."
"When I needed support for marital problems and childhood PTSD, Clinical Care Consultants seemed to be a good fit. When looking through the therapist's bios, what stood out to me was Cheri's commitment to her clients not just in the office but beyond, and that is the experience I had when working with her. Cheri was not just attentive to my needs, but invested in me as a person which helped me to not feel so alone. I felt that Cheri really understood me and was empathetic in a way that helped me build my self-confidence and self-worth. Every week, I left with at least one piece of information that I was able to apply throughout the week which always resulted in positive changes. I am grateful for the insight, kindness, and strength Cheri has shared with me, which in turn has made me a stronger individual."
