Cheryl Richardson, LCMHC, CRC
Counselor | Coach | Consultant

I was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina.  I attended and graduated from Saint ​​​​​​​​​​​Augustine’s University with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, Winston-Salem State University with a Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling and The University of Florida with a Post Graduate Certificate in Forensic Vocational Consulting.  Currently I am pursuing a Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision at Walden University.  I am a  Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, specializing in Rehabilitation Counseling and I am a nationally recognized Vocational Expert with the Social Security Administration.  With over 17 years’ experience in the helping profession, I currently serve as private practitioner working with people with disabilities. 

I am a Charlottean and a true southern belle! In addition to my passion for helping others, I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, traveling, dancing (with or without music), shopping, working out, reading, and all things girly!

​​
My Philosophy

I have a very down-to-earth approach and try to make those I form a counseling relationship with feel safe, heard, understood, and validated. I want to help you make significant and lasting changes in your life that are meaningful to you.

I am a cognitive behavioral therapist with a primary focus on reality therapy.

I use soft confrontation, when needed, yet believe that the client is in charge of what goals he or she wishes to pursue.
