More about Cheryl

Cheryl’s goal is to help guide people down the road to better health by educating and empowering them to make positive choices for the own health and wellness. She helps them move forward with those choices, in a way that keeps them from feeling overwhelmed.

What clients are saying:

"Health Works coaching sessions are delightfully non therapeutic! Cheryl used a low key, common sense approach to discussing my stress points, both personal and professional. She helped me understand how the two parts of my life are connected and what's happening in one impacts what goes on in the other. Cheryl never told me what to do. She asked sensible questions that led me to come up with problem solving solutions myself. What a relief to realize that I actually am in charge! In only three sessions I've lost some worry lines and my nights' sleep is sounder. The day job is going better, too. Thanks!"

“I’ve learned more about my asthma and what it really means to be in control rather than letting it control me. It really helped having someone to talk with who was there just for me, and had the "time to listen and even answer my ‘stupid’ questions.”

“Thanks to our conversations and the information and resources you gave me, I have been more focused again on taking care of myself and doing the things I need to do to manage my diabetes. I’m checking my blood sugar, watching my diet, and scheduling & keeping medical appointments when I need them. I’d been on a medication and self-care ‘vacation’ for a while, but now I’m back on track.”
