About Cheri


Could you use some extra support during this unique time? 

The therapeutic value of a session is not simply about the touch, it is about the intimacy that is created with healthy boundaries and a willingness to open up to one another.  To see and be seen. 

I have a tool kit full of fun ways to connect, soothe your nervous system, and bolster your spirits.

Together, we can create our own comforting and confidential haven.


More about me and YOU:

I LOVE meeting and getting to know people from ALL walks of life!  

Would YOU like to feel:

  • Welcomed
  • Accepted completely, just as you are
  • Truly heard & understood
  • Appreciated & valued

I delight in creating safe spaces, where people can feel free to JUST BE and share about anything.

  • Have you been feeling anxious, about what the heck is going to happen next?  
  • Climbing the walls, stir-crazy and tired of staying home?  
  • Ready to throttle whomever you are in lockdown with and would welcome someone ELSE to vent to and/or connect with?  
  • Or doing a solo quarantine and feeling pretty isolated and lonely and could REALLY use some deep caring & connection?

We aren’t able to physically touch right now, but there are many other ways to “touch” – with. . . 

  • Eye contact – the reassurance of a loving gaze
  • Pleasing sounds, such as uplifting music or a comforting voice 
  • Active, compassionate & attentive listening 

And, most importantly – genuine care and compassion can touch the heart and raise one’s spirits.  

Now, more than ever, we need to find creative ways to lessen the sense of islolation.  Feeling connected to others helps soothe and relax the nervous system, reduce anxiety, depression and chronic pain, and so much more.
