A Note from Cheyenne

Welcome to my practice! Choosing a partner for your therapeutic journey can be a daunting task, and I am honored that you are visiting my website to learn more about me and my services. When you choose to work with me, you will see that I place emphasis on building a safe, accepting relationship, believing there is room for support, challenge, and even humor in counseling. I work tirelessly to hear your story and partner with you to help you move closer to the life and relationships you most desire. Together we will create a plan to not only reduce symptoms but to achieve a greater degree of holistic wellness. 

I completed my PhD in counseling at the University of North Texas, MS in counseling psychology at Tarleton State University, and BA in speech communications at Baylor University. Currently, I am a licensed professional counselor in North Carolina. For the past 15 years, I have served a variety of clients in multiple settings including agencies, private practice, hospice, a military installation, and residential treatment centers. I possess extensive experience working with young adults, adults, families, and couples. Every client I have worked with has taught me more about the process of healing and connecting to others. Giving back to my profession is important to me, and I routinely offer professional workshops at local, state, and national venues.

As a full-time faculty member at Wake Forest, I teach in the graduate counseling department. The combination of teaching and clinical work suits me well, as my students motivate me to be a model of life-long learning, and my clients humble and inspire me. A relatively recent transplant to NC, I balance work with fun by exploring all the wonderful things NC has to offer. I'm usually accompanied by my therapy dog drop-out, Tank the WonderLab. Given the option to work beside me, he chose the very non-therapeutic route of focusing his energy on tennis balls and naps on the couch. I tell him he will someday regret his choice. He tells me to pass him another cheese ball. My menagerie is rounded out by a sweet golden retriever and two feline princesses. I strive to be an active member of the community and volunteer my time with a local hospice and Triad Mental Health Professionals, a networking organization I founded in 2016.
