Hi there, I'm Cheri!

Hi, my name is Cheri Abbott and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in California. I provide services via Telehealth. I specialize in women’s mental health by supporting the unique challenges and experiences faced by women. Specific areas of specialization are anxiety, stress, self-esteem, career and life transitions, and peer and family relationship issues. I utilize Client-Centered Therapy and Strength Based Therapy in an attempt to help women increase trust within themselves to make sustainable changes.

My approach

My approach to therapy is to build a strong healthy therapeutic relationship with each individual in an effort to help you find your inner strength. I utilize a Client-Centered approach to partner with you, creating trust and safety to feel seen and heard. I support your thoughts and feelings with understanding and genuineness so that you can express true emotions without fear of rejection. I help you identify your strengths, values, and beliefs to increase self-awareness and reach realistic goals, improving overall well-being.

My focus

My experience (7+ years) in treating anxiety has helped women reduce anxiousness, worry, overwhelm, stress from work and relationships while improving low self-esteem, imposter syndrome, and challenges with life transitions. This is done together by exploring, gaining insight, and increasing self-awareness to have a healthier understanding of how to manage and overcome anxiety challenges.

My communication style

My style of communication is to be observant, intuitive, compassionate, empathetic, and thoughtful. I utilize honest, safe, and nonjudgmental curiosity and feedback. I provide validation and insight to help women achieve goals. My hope for therapy is that each individual feels safe being vulnerable.

My goals for you

My approach to goal setting is to partner with you to build a healthy therapeutic relationship and establish what it is you need or want out of therapy. The goals are for YOU. My role is to guide you toward them.

My first session with you

The first session is about getting to know you (the client) and gathering information to best support the healing process. What you can expect from our first session together is: 1. Introductions 2. Review confidentiality and its limits, 3. Review mandated reporting laws, 4. Review crisis information (to have resources if/as needed in treatment) 5. Assessment (questions to better understand you and why you have come to therapy) 6. Review scheduling for the next appointment.
