Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Hi! I’m Cheryl Hejnal, LCSW, and I’m a licensed clinical social worker. I specialize in treating ADHD, substance use disorders, eating disorders, PTSD, chronic illness, anxiety, depression, grief, and LGBTQ+ experiences.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution, so I promise to see you as you are and provide a highly individualized therapeutic approach that is heart-centered, friendly, and empowering. I can't wait to meet you and see how I can help you feel better, get your shit together, and reach your goals!
Areas of Expertise
Individual Therapy, Trauma, ADHD, PTSD, LGBTQ+, Eating Disorders, Crisis Intervention, Safety Planning, Family Counseling, Couples Counseling
I use multiple evidence-based practices, including motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, brief intervention therapy, sensorimotor psychotherapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), to tailor my treatment interventions and ensure individualized care (check here for more information on these techniques). In addition, I help my clients access other outside tools and resources to fully support their multidimensional needs.
