I Believe in Inspiring Healing

 

As the Owner of Salt and Light Counseling LLC, I do my best to lead by example. This includes maturity, passion for people who are hurting, and approach of compassion, empathy, and intuitive understanding.  These blend together to create a safe, warm, therapeutic atmosphere and relationship. 

I focus on Adults dealing with childhood trauma, abuse, or family substance use.  These Adults often find themselves feeling stuck or helpless.  These Adults are also plagued by anxiety, maybe even panic attacks, along with uncertainty and relationships that lack boundaries.

I use proven methods to move from helpless to Empowered, to move from stuck to Creative Problem Solving, to move from anxious to Calmer and More Emotionally Balanced.


I am Telehealth/Virtual Only, and I Do Not take any insurance . . Your insurance plan may still cover some of the expense; See the FAQs page for more info.

Blessings, 

Sherry  
 

P. S.   In my personal life, I live in Arizona while I work with clients in Maryland.  I live with 2 spoiled dogs, Reesie and Rebel.  I take my dogs with me pretty much everywhere and enjoy dog-focused activities.
