Cheryl Cornelius, Ph.D.

Areas of Expertise

“My practice in recent years has been largely treating depression, anxiety and dissociative challenges (which includes victims of childhood and/or adult trauma, family alcoholism/addictions,etc); adult individuals, couples, family dyads (parent-child, siblings). For many years I worked in skilled nursing facilities with disabled adults in rehab, and with elders in nursing care–a very neglected group of human beings.”

Approach to Therapy

“Anything that works: from analyzing dreams to career coaching. The day a client no longer needs sessions, is the day I have reached my goal.”

Interest in TherapySafetyNet

“For what were we trained all those years?? Yes we have to make a living, provide for our families, but there has to be a portal for caring for our community as our careers ripen ( I speak for myself at 61 years of age)—we all did plenty of free and nearly free service during our training years–and that was good–in fact some of the best work I have ever done in terms of clinical creativity/insight–but now I believe I have something more,or different, to offer, as the inevitability of life passage gives me knowledge, maybe even some wisdom???”
