Intro

Hi! I am Sherry.  I am a professional counselor licensed in Illinois.  I identify as neurodivergent and hope to help others on their journey of self-discovery and fulfillment.

What motivated you to specialize in working with autistic adults?

As a person who has always felt "different", I am impassioned about helping others who may feel similarly.  I feel awareness, increased education and a platform to discuss our strengths and challenges is important and Proser is an opportunity to accomplish this goal.

How do you bring a strengths-based, affirming approach to your client work?

I am excited to share this self-awareness journey with others.  I hope to discuss the similarities and differences of being neurodivergent.  We all have strengths that sometimes gets lost in our day to day lives.  It is important to acknowledge the survivor in all of us.
