About Sheryl

As Your Coach, I Believe...

  • Life is too short to simply exist.
  • Life is too short to wait for someday.
  • Life is meant to be lived.
  • Each of us deserves to truly live the life we want.

Personal Journey

My career has given me the opportunity to succeed in counseling, guiding and supporting women as both a licensed therapist and health/life coach.

Like many woman, I personally know what it is like when life doesn't go "as planned". Throughout my life, I have encountered multiple losses including deaths (both of my parents and grandparents, miscarriages), health issues (autoimmune issues, infertility) and a few broken hearts and dreams. There have been times when I have questioned how I could move forward.

Through my own work of rebuilding, I have used my professional knowledge and personal experience as a blueprint to Make A Life that is healthy, fulfilling and more than I could have expected.

The lessons I have learned and the strength I have gained from my own journey is now a guide I use in helping my clients create their own How To Instruction Manuals. 

Professional Journey

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for almost twenty years, my clients have often jokingly wished there was a How To Instruction Manual  for their life. Although there can never be just one manual, we can each create a personalized instruction manual that is best for us.

Too often, we find ourselves living a life we do not consciously think about.

We get up, go to work, and perhaps have a few extra activities and then do it again. We may find ourselves existing rather than living.  Then suddenly, an event happens (death, health issues, divorce, jobs loss) that forces us to recognize we aren’t truly living the life we want.

Over 15 years of working in hospice and palliative care, has taught me the value of living the life one wants now. We often wait until later…. Because we have time (or so we think).

My role as a health and life coach is to help my clients discover how they want their life to be and create the steps to get them there.

Coaching Philosophy

 As your coach, my goal is to not only provide guidance and develop new skills but to help you discover the strengths you already possess.  Through my own journey, I try to provide not only inspiration but motivation that You Can Do Hard Things!

Are you struggling in your life and asking "What do I do?"

Let me help you write your own How To Instructions…..

I look forward to helping you explore your “How to Make Your Life” through finding your next path and creating your own How to Instruction Manual. 

Kind Words

I honestly felt better than I have in months after our Walk and Talk session and could have walked for hours. After just one session, I felt better and found Sheryl helped me break through a creative barrier.


Sheryl gave me the means to understand myself, helped me make personal changes that I needed to identify and wanted and led me into a new personal chapter of understanding and personal satisfaction. She is a professional, wise, spiritual, kind and the support you need. Everyday, I find her voice and wisdom are with me. I can not say how grateful I am to have found her.


By working with Sheryl, I realized I am not a failure! I am who I am and have the ability to make choices to be who I want to be.


Sheryl helped me not to fear change in life and to develop a tool box of coping techniques I would have never had.


After feeling my life  and health was falling apart, my sessions with Sheryl helped me to see how stress was impacting my health. She supported me as I made various changes and found the best lifestyle fit for me.


Sheryl has the ability to present challenging trainings that are mandatory and the same information. She presents in an interesting manner that holds the participants’ focus and attention, making it a surprise how quickly time has passed. She handled a large crowd and not so friendly space in a way that made no one recognize the difficulties.


One of the most dynamic speakers with the ability to hold the attention of a large audience.

Hello and Welcome, I’m Sheryl!

After my personal life didn’t go as planned, I realized I needed to write my own How To Make A Life Manual rather than follow someone else’s. Today, as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Health/Life Coach, I help women write their own How To Manuals and live the life they desire.
