Cheryl Wheeler, MA
Transitioning from marketing and contract management, I was allowed the opportunity to return to school and study my life's dream of working with people in overcoming childhood trauma and abuse. Education includes a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology through Argosy University (2007), and in the home stretch of completing a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Capella University. Also, pursuing my Doctor of Philosophy, Ph.D. specializing in Transpersonal Counseling through the University of Sedona. Trained as a psychotherapist I've come to find a more fulfilling approach to helping others through the practice of Intuitive Transformational Coaching. As in business, we evaluate for results ....... is what you have been doing working? *Coaching is not psychotherapy, and as such, is not suitable for Serious Mental Illness. Area of specialty involves sexual healing, specifically from childhood sexual abuse. As a survivor myself, it is a special gift to have experienced many of the same emotions, behaviors, thinking errors etc. that other survivors have experienced. (We are all victims until we take the first step in seeking help, at that point we begin to become empowered and begin the process of "survivor". Beginning the journey of healing from abuse begins with self-discovery. Power and control is the basis for everything that I teach, and the associating concept of healthy personal empowerment. When we are abused, especially as children, we have been completely robbed of our own power and control. Think about the child who is physically smaller in stature than the abuser (even abusers who are adolescent or similar in age to us), the abuser towers over the child (physically and emotionally). There is also the factor of ranking or seniority, as children we are taught to respect those who are older than us. The abuse puts us in a position of victim. We tend to continue in the role of victim throughout our life, until a point where we take back the power and control from the original source – the abuser. We are usually not conscious of the role of victim, and thus play the role indefinitely as it has become part of us. We tend to experience confusion in everyday emotions, this is common in survivors. Notice, the changed of term from "victim" to "survivor"; once we are emotionally aware and willing to accept emotional healing, from this point on we are survivors! Our minds hold us in a virtual time warp when we are dealing with childhood abuse. Consider the struggling of our adult mind and childhood memories, memories that are not front and center, but subconscious. Issues of depression, addictions, etc. are examples of the child's pain that continues into our adult life today. Healing childhood wounds is possible; when you are ready seek professional counseling as this is not a journey one can for emotional safety take alone. Someone needs to be present to witness and hear your story, a story that you may have never told before. I am here to take witness and share your journey and pain toward healthy healing and empowerment!

Cheryl Wheeler's Care Philosophy

In the early part of my career I believed in the "absolutes". As I become more in tune with individuality, I find that listening to my intuition and following an organic path with each client allows for a healthier more sustainable outcome; Intuitive Transformational Coaching provides for a step beyond traditional psychotherapy, to a higher level of functioning! Together we learn how to apply analytic thinking from business application and adapt it to creating a catalyst of change. This change occurs when we are able to see full spectrum, our reactions and reactive behaviors. Finding and making meaning in your life, is ultimately the journey we take together! When you are ready to take a journey of self discovery and achieve healthy personal empowerment, call me. Let the journey begin! As your Intuitive Transformational Coach we can work together in finding new and effective ways for moving forward.

(Online therapy also available). Trauma and abuse are different for each person; trauma and abuse are perceptional. Two people experiencing the same event may not perceive it to be traumatic.

Many survivors have lost decades to self-destructive coping patterns. Quite literally, many survivors would have died if it weren't for their coping mechanisms.We should be proud of our resourcefulness in staying alive, yet many of us feel terribly shamed instead. The truth is, as a traumatized, isolated, and frighten young person, you did what ever you had to do to survive the abuse.  You have the ability to re-examine your life. You can stop doing things you're ashamed of and begin the work of changing your behavior. But you have to start by forgiving yourself for the things you've done in order to cope. Feeling ashamed and terrible about yourself can keep you trapped and powerless, unable to mobilize your energy to make the necessary changes in your life.

Intuitive Transformational Coaching removes the pathological or pathogenic aspects that the medical disease model of mental disorders prescribes. No longer is the client viewed as ill with a diagnosis in need of treatment. Involving a working relationship in "creating a future", rather than "getting over" the past.  Treatment involves sessions consisting of a highly structured initialized curriculum. The duration and goals of sessions are based on each individual's needs.
