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 clinical mental health counselor in North Carolina. For the past 18 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, I teach in a 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 native Texan, I have also lived in Arizona, and Virginia, and now call NC home. I spend my free time building distress tolerance by training my female black lab, Jett. She is working to fill mighty shoes (paws?) of the perfect dog, Tank, who was my partner through many adventures and now lives on in love and memories. My menagerie is rounded out by two feline princesses, who spend their days trying to avoid Jett, and my life partner, and two bonus kids. 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.
