About Sherry Collier
I am a mother, wife, and a therapist who enjoys hiking, swimming, painting, crafting and having conversations with many people about many topics. My relationship with God is the top priority in my life. I find that when I am focused upon my relationship with God, all my other relationships flow more smoothly. It is my privilege to work with individuals, couples, children and families to bring effective solutions for improving relationships. I view relationships as avenues for growth and healing. When we experience difficulties with relationships, it can both cause, and be a symptom of mental/emotional distress. I will work with you to identify and treat some of these causes and symptoms so you can begin to experience a more meaningful and effective life in relationship with God, others and yourself.
