Who We Are
“Becoming is never giving up on the idea
that there’s more growing to be done.”
A therapist at heart, Cherrelle has been in the field of mental health since 2010. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Graduate Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pfeiffer University. She began her career conducting research on children’s memory and very quickly immersed herself in working with children with developmental disabilities. While working with children, Cherrelle found appreciation for the impact of childhood experiences on adult development. She is invested in helping people make meaning out of their experiences and the world around them.
Cherrelle primarily works with people of color, couples, and individuals with eating disorders. Before entering private practice in 2019, she served as the Associate Clinical Director of a residential treatment facility for people with eating disorders. She held that role while simultaneously serving as interim Clinical Director for nearly a year. While accustomed to the fast pace of hospital settings, she also embodies the ability to help clients slow down and prioritize the needs in their own life. Treating people with eating disorders, and in particular people of color with eating disorders, is her passion. Cherrelle is a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist, signifying more than 5,000 hours of clinical work with people with eating disorders.
Personally, Cherrelle enjoys traveling with her family, trying new foods, and all things adventurous. Clients describe her as pragmatic and personable. She describes herself as both gentle and firm. Cherrelle views therapy as an opportunity to become our best selves and have fun along the way.
