Cheryl Troxel, M.S., LMFT


As a parent, you want your child to experience success and happiness. It’s painful to watch your child struggle, and of course, you want to do everything you can to make it better. When working with children and adolescents, I like to include caregivers in order to strengthen family relationships. I work with children of all ages and have specialized experience with young children (birth to five). I incorporate art and play therapies when working with children. I also work to support you in gaining tools and insight to best meet your child’s needs.

I work to provide an environment where you can feel safe to share all parts of your story, and where we can work together on your journey toward healing. As a couple and family therapist, I am always curious about ways that your relationships influence your thoughts, feelings, and behavior.

It would be an honor to work with you. I am open to having a conversation to help determine whether I might be a good match as your therapist. Please contact me to learn more about how I can help you on your path toward healing.
