Cherise holds a Clinical Masters of Social Work degree from UBCO and has been working in Social Work for over 10 years. She is passionate about mental wellness and helping people to become the most complete versions of themselves, while providing a safe space to explore, heal and most of all grow. She knows the courage it can take to say “I need help” and makes it her goal, to align with you in a way that leaves you feeling understood, accepted, and hopeful for change. Cherise believes that different techniques work for different people and therefore has training in several different therapeutic modalities, to allow for the creation of a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs. She understands that getting to the point of seeking therapy often means that you have tried several techniques yourself. Her goal is to help you find out where and why you’re getting stuck, and most importantly work towards truly creating change in yourself that is lasting. Some of her areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, grief and loss, stress management, and overall mental wellness.
Cherise will be available for individual counselling sessions in the clinic starting June.
