"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but

anyone can start today and make a new ending."

*** Sheryl is not accepting a any new clients at this time. ***

My name is Sheryl Dunn Watson, and I have practiced therapy in Oregon for more than 30 years. I have a MA in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark College in 1993, have been a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oregon since 1996, and became a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington October of 2020. I have been a National Certified Counselor since 1995 and a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor since 2014 through the National Board of Certified Counselors. I am a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA), the Oregon Counseling Association (ORCA), the Washington Mental Health Counselor Association (WMHCA),and the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ACBS).

I believe all people have within themselves the ability to move towards positive change. By creating a safe and trusting ​relationship and environment, I begin to facilitate my clients' abilities to accept personal responsibility for their behavior, develop autonomy, and to make positive and constructive choices in their lives. I hope to empower my clients to successfully overcome traumatic and/or stressful life events and to find positive solutions to problems they may face currently or in the future.

I integrate a variety of treatment theories and modalities to meet the needs and learning style of each individual. Some of the treatment modalities may include cognitive behavioral techniques, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness and self-regulation concepts, neuroscience, Polyvagal Informed Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Family Systems Theory, and Person-Centered approaches, as well as, parent counseling, psychosocial education, skills training, and narrative techniques.

I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation and I am happy to answer any questions you might have.

I look forward to meeting with you.
