anyone can start today and make a new ending."

My name is Sheryl Dunn Watson, and I have practiced therapy in Oregon for more than 25 years. I have a degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark College and I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor since 1996. I became a National Certified Counselor in 1995 and a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor in 2014. I am a member of the American Counseling Association and the Oregon Counseling Association.

I believe all people have within themselves the ability to move towards positive change. By creating a safe and trusting relationship and environment, I begin to facilitate my clients' abilities to accept personal responsibility for their behavior, develop autonomy, and to make positive and constructive choices in their lives. I hope to empower my clients to successfully overcome traumatic and/or stressful life events and to find positive solutions to problems they may face currently or in the future.

I integrate a variety of treatment theories and modalities to meet the needs and learning style of each individual. Some of the treatment modalities may include cognitive behavioral techniques, mindfulness and self-regulation concepts, solution focused therapy, family system’s theory, and client centered approaches, as well as, parent counseling, psychosocial education, skills training, and narrative techniques.

I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation and I am happy to answer any questions you might have.

I look forward to meeting with you,

Sheryl Dunn Watson, MA, LPC, CCMHC
