About Sheryl

Professionally and Personally – Sheryl brings out the best in others and gives the best she has. By nature, she listens without judgment, sees and nurtures positive perspectives and enables others to do the same for themselves. She readily picks up on opportunities to be playful and creates an energizing chemistry that elicits smiles. Her challenging journey as a parent, guiding three children through their difficult transitions, has proven to be an extremely powerful source of hope, compassion and insight for clients as well as friends.

The combination of her personal attributes, life experience, and academic and professional training makes Sheryl an extremely effective parent coach. She has had a profoundly positive impact on the numerous families who have turned to her for support and guidance.

Her Approach – Providing a warm relationship and customizing the pacing and the process itself to fit her client’s personal style and needs, Sheryl enables parents to trust what they already know, integrate pertinent knowledge and try out new ways of parenting.
